2,000 illustrations enable fast and accurate visual diagnosis of more than 200 internal medicine conditions 5-STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "The Color Atlas of Internal Medicine is in the same vein as The Color Atlas of Family Medicine, by many of the same authors, which was published in 2009 and updated in 2013. In my review of the 2009 version, I noted, 'This is what a modern textbook should be. It is concise yet comprehensive in the breadth of topics and, as the title suggests, robust with color photographs of extraordinarily good quality.' That statement stands for this book as well -- this is what a modern textbook should be. Reiterating my thoughts from 2009, 'By far, this is one of the best, most useful textbooks I have seen in a very long time. It is a must for the library of every primary care physician." --5 Stars--Doody's Review Service This beautiful full-color resource delivers everything practicing internists want and need in an atlas. The book features a strong visual approach, the use of introductory cases in all chapters, complete patient management guidance through concise synoptic text, and the inclusion of evidence grades for diagnosis and treatment recommendations. The Color Atlas of Internal Medicine utilizes a consistent chapter organization that includes: Patient Story Epidemiology Etiology/Pathophysiology Diagnosis Differential Diagnosis Management Prognosis Follow Up Patient Education The Color Atlas of Internal Medicine is enhanced by an unsurpassed collection of more than 2,000 high-quality clinical, morphologic, laboratory, and radiological images that represent the signs of the disorders you will most often encounter in everyday practice.

A Guide to the Present Moment
Publication Date: 2012-11-01
Former #1 Best Seller In Amazon's Counseling, Zen, & Stress Management Categories Downloaded by over 90,000 people... Your Unwanted Emotions Are Created By Thoughts, Not By Facts If your romantic partner ISN'T cheating, but you think that they are, how do you feel? Hurt. If your romantic partner IS cheating, but you think that they love you, how do you feel? Great. If your child ISN'T injured, but you think that they got hurt, how do you feel? Sad. If your child IS injured, but you don't know about it, how do you feel? Fine. If you AREN'T going to get fired next week, but you think that you'll be fired, how do you feel? Fearful. If you ARE going to get fired next week, but you think that your job is safe, how do you feel? Great. When the facts are "good," but you think they are "bad," you suffer. When the facts are "bad," but you think they are "good," you are happy. This demonstrates that the facts don't create your happiness or suffering. It is only your thoughts that create your emotions. A Powerful 5-Step Process That Can Immediately Bring You More Peace Do you want to stop living with anxiety, shame, depression, anger, sadness, worry, or fear? It certainly seems as though these emotions are inevitable, and directly created by our circumstances, our situations, and the people in our lives. However, it is possible to discover that all your unwanted emotions are actually created by the thoughts in your mind. More importantly, each of these emotions can vanish in an instant if you just stop believing the thoughts that create them. When You Don't Believe Words, Those Words Don't Create Emotions If a random person tells you, "The world is going to end tomorrow," and you believe them, how would you feel? You would likely experience fear. But if you didn't believe them at all, then how would their comment make you feel? You almost certainly wouldn't be emotionally affected. This demonstrates that when you believe someone's words to be true, those words create emotions. But if you don't believe someone's words, those same words don't have the power to create emotions. The same is true of the words (thoughts) in your mind. If you believe a negative thought about yourself or your life, that thought will create an unwanted emotion. However, if you don't believe that thought, it quite simply won't create the unwanted emotion. This Book Will Show You How To Disbelieve The Thoughts That Create Your Unwanted Emotions As soon as you disbelieve a thought that is creating one of your unwanted emotions, that emotion will instantly dissolve. As you disbelieve more and more of the thoughts that create your suffering, you will be happier in more and more situations, the more you will be living in the moment, and the more peace, love, laughter, wholeness, enthusiasm, and gratitude you will experience in your life. This Book Will Help You To: - Experience peace in situations that used to be filled with anxiety and stress - Lose the sense of lack in your life and live with a sense of a wholeness, worthiness, or completeness - Enjoy less arguments, resentment, and disappointment in your relationships with others - Experience the freedom to act how you feel without worrying about others' opinions - Live in the moment or live the power of now (i.e. spiritual awakening) - Experience the fulfillment you have been searching for

Mastering the Skills of Journal Writing and Publication
Publication Date: 2016-09-15
The ability to demonstrate that a specific health care profession provides valuable and effective services that meet society's health needs is a major objective for all health care academicians and researchers. Such skills are critical to ensure service reimbursement from an increasingly small pool of health care dollars. Demonstrating clinical effectiveness depends on the reporting of written research results through journal publication so that the health care community and larger society will be able to access and read evidence supporting health care services. Today, several clinical reporting standard guidelines have been created by researchers to enhance the ability of readers to evaluate the quality and value of studies. Journal Article Writing and Publication is the first text to compile those clinical research reporting standards in one source and helps educators and novice researchers to better understand the skills needed for journal publication. Health care researchers must begin using these reporting standards in order to write manuscripts that are both correctly formatted and transparently convey all critical study strengths and limitations. Educators must teach these reporting standards to students who must evaluate research reports as consumers and possible future contributors to the literature through their own writing. Journal Article Writing and Publication by Dr. Sharon A. Gutman (a former editor of the American Journal of Occupational Therapy) provides specific guidelines, based on the most commonly accepted reporting standards, for the preparation and writing of general research studies, intervention effectiveness studies, instrument development and testing studies, and case reports. A section is devoted to helping authors understand the rules governing the reporting of statistical data in text and tables. Separate sections help authors understand the manuscript preparation and submission process, the revision process, and the etiquette guiding communication with editors and reviewers. Guidelines for the preparation of scholarly discussion papers and editorials are also provided. Journal Article Writing and Publication also features a section that aims to help doctoral students and newly minted faculty turn academic work and dissertations into publishable journal articles. Suggestions are provided to help clinicians turn clinical data into research databases that could serve as the foundation for pilot studies. Finally, information is provided to help authors better understand the ethical considerations of publication including plagiarism, dual submissions, inappropriate authorship, copyright, and conflict of interest.
