Handbook Of Clinical Health Psychology
Author: C. Green
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Pages: 632
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

We seek to throw down the gauntlet with this handbook, challenging the he gemony of the "behavioral medicine" approach to the psychological study and treatment of the physically ill. This volume is not another in that growing surfeit oftexts that pledge allegiance to the doctrinaire purity of behavioristic thinking, or conceptualize their subject in accord with the sterility of medical models. Diseases are not our focus, nor is the narrow band of behavioral assessment and therapy methodologies. Rather, we have sought to redefine this amorphous, yet burgeoning field so as to place it squarely within the province of a broadly-based psychology-specifically, the emerging, substantive discipline of health psy chology and the well-established professionalism and diverse technologies of clinical psychology. The handbook's title-Clinical Health Psychology-reflects this reorientation explicitly, and Chapter 1 addresses its themes and provides its justifications more fully. In the process of developing a relevant and comprehensive health assess ment tool, the editors were struck by the failure of clinical psychologists to avail themselves of the rich vein of materials that comprise the psychosocial world of the physically ill. Perhaps more dismaying was the observation that this field was being mined-less than optimally-by physicians and nonclinical psychologists.

The Hyperlipidaemia Handbook

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

1 Shepherd Coronary artery disease, the most important cause of death in the United Kingdom, kills about 200 000 Britons each year. Many victims are struck down out of the blue and in the prime of an active working life. Others survive the fIrst attack but are so debilitated by it that they are compelled to fall back on the efforts of their family and the Social and Health Services for their future survival. The epidemic proportions of the problem and the burden which it places on the community at large has led many health care professionals to reassess their attitudes to heart disease prevention. In the past, the clinician's attention has been directed primarily at the treatment of established ischaemic heart disease rather than focussing on forestalling its appearance by attempting to tackle those life-style habits within the population which appear to predispose to it. A number of recent developments make this approach hard to sustain. First, there is now convincing evidence that action taken against cigarette smoking, hyper tension and hypercholesterolaemia offers signifIcant protection to the individual. Secondly, effective and apparently safe antihypertensive and lipid-lowering agents have recently become available to the practicing clinician. Thirdly, developments in computer technology and laboratory equipment manufacture have brought the measurement of coronary risk factors right into the primary health care setting. And, last, but not least, political attitudes towards prevention now favour the enthusiastic general practitioner with an interest in anticipating and averting the development of degenerative diseases like atherosclerosis.

The Handbook Of Heart Drugs
Author: Martin Goldman, M.D.
Publisher: Henry Holt and Company
Release Date: 2014-10-28
Pages: 297
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Cardiovascular drugs have dramatically changed the way we treat heart disease in the last decade--allowing us to effectively combat hypertension, lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart attacks, and, in some cases, even reverse heart disease. Yet, if you are on of the more than 30,000,000 Americans who take heart drugs, chances are you are not getting all the information you need to take these medications safely and effectively. Dr. Martin Goldman has written the first book that deals with all the issues surrounding the use of these life-preserving drugs--how they work on the body's systems and how life-style, diet, and exercise enhance or impede their effectiveness. In clear and accessible prose, using examples from his own practice, Dr. Goldman also presents guidelines for choosing and communicating with your cardiologist, examines the value of new screening tests and procedures, and even shows patients how to keep a cardiovascular diary to monitor their own heart care. The second half of the book provides comprehensive profiles of more than ninety commonly used heart drugs--among them beta blockers, anticoagulants, and antihypertensives--examining their possible side effects; their interactions with food, alcohol, and other drugs' and life-style alterations to consider while using them. This is an indispensable guidebook for anyone concerned about complete cardiac care.
