The science of pharmacology and the responsibility relationship building with patients are important elements of a health professional’s clinical knowledge and skills to provide safe and appropriate pharmacotherapeutic regimens in everyday practice. Interdisciplinary members of the health team are required to continually interpret specific patient health data to implement and evaluate outcomes of medication treatment. All health clinicians are increasingly relying on practice guidelines and the applied specialized training of health team members when obtaining the patient health history to improve therapeutic medication regimens, avoid adverse effects, and to safely and effectively treat a disease state. This is the third course in the Basics of Pharmacology series.

This book presents current clinical knowledge relating to key topics in acute and chronic pain in a multiple choice question (MCQ) format. Individual chapters are devoted to subjects such as the anatomy of pain pathways, pain processing, evaluation of pain, different pain syndromes and pain involving different regions of the body, pharmacologic and physical pain management, neural blockade, and special procedures. Each of the MCQs has four or five answer options in true/false format, and the answers are discussed in detail with provision of suitable references whenever appropriate. Multiple Choice Questions in Pain Management will be especially valuable for those who are sitting anesthesia board exams anywhere in the world. It will, for example, meet the needs of candidates for the FRCA examination (in which 20–25% of MCQs relate to pain management) or the FFPMRCA examination (Fellowship of the Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Royal College of Anaesthetists). In addition, the book will be useful for pain fellows and for all clinicians who are seeking to improve their knowledge of pain management.

<p><strong>A<em> New York Times</em>, <em>USA Today, </em>and<em> Wall Street Journal</em> Bestseller!</strong></p><p>"<strong>the glowing ghosts of the radium girls haunt us still</strong>."—NPR Books </p><p><em>The incredible true story of the women who fought America’s Undark danger</em></p><p>The Curies’ newly discovered element of radium makes gleaming headlines across the nation as the fresh face of beauty, and wonder drug of the medical community. From body lotion to tonic water, the popular new element shines bright in the otherwise dark years of the First World War.</p><p>Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories. The glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe; they light up the night like industrious fireflies. With such a coveted job, these “shining girls” are the luckiest alive — until they begin to fall mysteriously ill.</p><p>But the factories that once offered golden opportunities are now ignoring all claims of the gruesome side effects, and the women’s cries of corruption. And as the fatal poison of the radium takes hold, the brave shining girls find themselves embroiled in one of the biggest scandals of America’s early 20th century, and in a groundbreaking battle for workers’ rights that will echo for centuries to come. </p><p>Written with a sparkling voice and breakneck pace, <em>The Radium Girls</em> fully illuminates the inspiring young women exposed to the “wonder” substance of radium, and their awe-inspiring strength in the face of almost impossible circumstances. Their courage and tenacity led to life-changing regulations, research into nuclear bombing, and ultimately saved hundreds of thousands of lives...</p>

<p>This book describes applications of acridines for the treatment of various neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and various prion diseases, and discusses the potential of acridines in neuro-regenerative medicine. Using modern data-mining software, it presents structures of acridines with nucleic acids and proteins and compares them with the native structures. Furthermore, the book presents modern methods of acridine synthesis, comparing them with the most useful conventional methods. Acridines interact with both nucleic acids and proteins, and due to their direct interactions with various enzymes, they can be suitable for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, inflammation, immunological disorders, and protozoal diseases. The characteristic spectral properties of acridines can  be employed in labeling proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, and even cells and their compartments. Moreover, they can be applied in photodynamic therapy. </p>

<p><strong>NATIONAL BESTSELLER </strong></p><p><strong>“A mind-blowing tour along the path from sex and drugs to R&D.”</strong> - <strong><em>Financial Times </em></strong></p><p><p>It’s the biggest revolution you’ve never heard of, and it’s hiding in plain sight. Over the past decade, Silicon Valley executives like Eric Schmidt and Elon Musk, Special Operators like the Navy SEALs and the Green Berets, and maverick scientists like Sasha Shulgin and Amy Cuddy have turned everything we thought we knew about high performance upside down. Instead of grit, better habits, or 10,000 hours, these trailblazers have found a surprising short cut. They're harnessing rare and controversial states of consciousness to solve critical challenges and outperform the competition. </p><p><em>New York Times</em> bestselling author Steven Kotler and high performance expert Jamie Wheal spent four years investigating the leading edges of this revolution—from the home of SEAL Team Six to the Googleplex, the Burning Man festival, Richard Branson’s Necker Island, Red Bull’s training center, Nike’s innovation team, and the United Nations’ Headquarters. And what they learned was stunning: In their own ways, with differing languages, techniques, and applications, every one of these groups has been quietly seeking the same thing: the boost in information and inspiration that altered states provide. </p><p>Today, this revolution is spreading to the mainstream, fueling a <em>trillion</em> dollar underground economy and forcing us to rethink how we can all lead richer, more productive, more satisfying lives. Driven by four accelerating forces—psychology, neurobiology, technology and pharmacology—we are gaining access to and insights about some of the most contested and misunderstood terrain in history. Stealing Fire is a provocative examination of what’s actually possible; a guidebook for anyone who wants to radically upgrade their life.</p><p></p>

Using cutting-edge research, this book demonstrates that the underlying reason for much chronic pain is brain sensitization and learned neural pathways, rather than actual tissue damage. Dr. Schubiner has used this new understanding to develop a unique program to reverse pain. He has also conducted research that shows the efficacy of this approach. By reading this book, you'll be able to determine if you have this syndrome and how to overcome it. The program in this book gives you the therapeutic writing exercises, online meditations, and everything else you need to unlearn your pain.
