Personalized, Evolutionary, and Ecological Dermatology

Hardcover:

$159.00

Kindle:

This book discusses the potential to enhance the dermatology profession’s valuable pattern recognition, diagnostic, and treatment skills via the evolution of modern medical techniques, including the advent of personalized medicine and genomics. These are now easily accessible and enable the customization of healthcare using molecular analysis to influence medical decisions, practices, and therapies for the individual patient.

The evolution of the skin, and the manner in which dermatological conditions are described and managed, reveals the need to consider many aspects on a personal level. In addition, as more is understood about the biology of the skin and how the introduction of new antibiotics, biologics, and other therapies affect our skin’s ecological balance, this book aims to create a heightened sense of the importance and offerings of ecological dermatology.

Personalized, Evolutionary, and Ecological Dermatology brings together the major biological topics and succinctly summarizes how the addition of personalized medicine with an evolutionary and ecological perspective, if used carefully and ethically, can assist dermatologists in becoming more successful treatment providers.

Clinical Cases in Integrative Dermatology

Paperback:

$59.99

Kindle:

Clinical cases are a key component in modern medical education, assisting the trainee or recertifying clinician to work through unusual cases using best practice techniques. Integrative Dermatology is an important discipline in this regard since it is a highly visual subject requiring the reader to describe often very subtle differences in the presentation of patients and define accurately the diagnostic and management criteria to base their clinical decision-making on. In 1992 the National Institutes of Health established the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (now also called Integrative Medicine), which has led to increased evidence-based research. The objective of this book is to provide readers with an overview of traditional and complementary treatment options for the most common skin problems encountered in clinical practice.

Skin health has taken center stage for health care practitioners and patients alike. Not only has skin cancer quickly become the number one form of cancer in the United States, with 3.5 million cancers diagnosed in over 2 million patients annually, but concerns about sun protection and healthy aging have dominated both public media and individual patient concerns. As the largest and most visible organ, the skin displays all evidence of health and vitality, both real and perceived, thereby conferring a tremendous amount of psychological burden on those afflicted with cutaneous ailments. Clinicians are thus charged with the important task of caring for the whole person, mentally as well as physically, to achieve therapeutic success. Integrative Dermatology is the first comprehensive text in this growing field which strives to examine and combine best practices from both traditional medicine as well as complementary and alternative healing modalities such as: diet, supplements, and mind-body medicine. The book presents key concepts for synthesizing the best, comprehensive care plan for each individualized and contextualized dermatology patient.

Clinical Cases in Geriatric Dermatology

Paperback:

$35.08

Kindle:

The demographic imperative has reached the shores of dermatology.  By 2020 those aged 65 years and older will comprise a quarter of the US population, and this percentage will be even more significant in less developed countries. As a specialty, dermatology needs to respond to this unprecedented demographic shift.  Over the last few decades dermatology has enjoyed a sustained improvement in understanding of the basic science of skin biology and an increase in proven effectiveness of clinical interventions.  As dermatologists, leadership must be in place to provide specialized care for older adults; dermatology should be at the forefront of prevention and treatment of skin diseases and be able to recognize the dermatologic signs of chronic systemic disease so often noted in our elderly.

Clinical Cases in Geriatric Dermatology represents a practical tool in understanding the skin of older people and includes chapters on the common presentations of dermatologic disease in the elderly population. It presents practical information to assist in making the correct clinical decision. The concise case-based organization of this book will help those in dermatology training programs, but will also be a welcome revision tool for qualified and recertifying dermatologists.

Common Treatments in Preventive Dermatology: How to Treat Your Patient

Paperback:

$35.33

Chronological aging takes a toll on all and is especially visible on the most recognizable features of our facial skin. As the population ages it is demanding more help, including prevention of skin problems. We live in a world between expectation and reality, and the goal for dermatologists is to help ourselves and our patients anticipate problems and provide solutions.

Common Treatments in Preventive Dermatology: How to Treat Your Patient is the key clinical primer dedicated to prevention of skin disease. It seems almost counter-intuitive to take on this task, because so much of what we do in dermatology is based on repair and restructuring of skin maladies. However, the shortage of dermatology providers and the shift to cosmetics and procedures mean that it is essential to give patients choice when deciding the best options for themselves and their therapy and to maximize their experience of receiving the best quality healthcare.

Much can be done to prevent the disfiguring effects brought on by the abuse of sun, nicotine and alcohol, excess weight, mobility and exercise difficulties, dysfunctional nutrition, improper hygiene, lack of immunizations, inadequate cosmetic repair, and many other problems. Preventive dermatology focuses on ways we can minimize skin problems. We have highly effective sunscreens, a plethora of various information about skin care on the internet, and more prevention and treatment modalities than ever before.  However, even the most informed patients need guidance, making this book essential for all practicing dermatologists.

Diagnosis of Aging Skin Diseases

Paperback:

$78.92

A greater percentage of the population is now in the over-65 age group, with this trend expected to continue well into the 21st century. Consequently, geriatric dermatology is a specialty that is receiving particular attention, not only in terms of patient numbers but also the scope of treatment, with more treatment regimens becoming available to dermatologists.

Diagnosis of Aging Skin Diseases provides the clinician with an encyclopedia of geriatric dermatoses that can be used on rounds or in a reference environment. It provides a structured illustrated review of the various lesions encountered, which will make this an invaluable reference resource for all physicians dealing with older skin. It also places special emphasis on illnesses originating in other organ systems that are made manifest on the skin and often complicate the diagnostic and therapeutic picture.

The manifestations of dermatologic disease in the geriatric population are often subtly different to those in younger age groups. Using a practical and clinical approach, Dr Norman and his contributor panel of leading authorities in the field have compiled a vital reference for dermatology fellows and residents, geriatricians and related clinicians to identify dermatoses specific to the aging population.

Clinical Geriatrics

Hardcover:

Geriatric medicine is an emerging field in the U.S., Canada, and Europe with Asia following not too far behind. And as the aging population increases worldwide, the field will continue to grow in importance. Keeping pace with this rapidly expanding field, Clinical Geriatrics provides the basic principles of geriatric medicine, including important aspects of patient evaluation and management in the hospital, nursing home, home, and other community settings. 

Unique in its simplicity of style, the book is based on material derived from standard international journals and the experience of the contributors. It presents information in an easy-to-find and easy-to-understand format, yet does not oversimplify the subject. The editors also cover topics not commonly found in texts on geriatrics including vitamin B12 deficiency, HIV disease in the elderly, and cutaneous skin infections. The combination of authoritative information and convenient format make Clinical Geriatrics the definitive text for teaching geriatric medicine and the ideal reference for primary health care providers.

Geriatric Dermatology

Hardcover:

$77.78

Over the past few years the world's population has continued on its remarkable transition from a state of high birth and death rates to one characterized by low birth and death rates. Consequently, primary care physicians and dermatologists will see more elderly patients presenting age-related dermatological conditions. There has never been a better time for a book devoted entirely to skin care in the elderly.

Geriatric Dermatology draws together a panel of experts who provide an overview of the diagnosis and treatment of geriatric skin diseases. It begins with a general review of the aging of the world's population and the major dermatological problems that often arise in elderly patients. An added benefit is the book's coverage of geriatric skin care in nursing homes, adult congregate living, and subacute and home health settings, a subject not always found in conventional dermatology texts.

The book includes:

  • A summary of the dermatological disorders frequently encountered in the elderly, including eczematous dermatitis, skin infections, and neoplasias
  • A description of the most common geriatric hair and scalp disorders, including graying, alopecia, and scalp psoriasis
  • Comprehensive coverage of the diagnosis and treatment of leg, foot, and nail diseases
  • Detailed discussion of the treatment of superficial mycoses, scabies, and pediculosis
  • Less common geriatric conditions such as blistering diseases 
  • Major adverse drug reactions on the skin
  • Leg ulcers due to venous insufficiency, arterial diseases, and diabetic nephropathy
  • Diagnosis and treatment of diabetic complications of dermatology, such scleroderma and dermopathy

The study of diseases that impact the elderly population is a crucial and growing area of interest in medicine. Geriatricians, primary care physicians, dermatologists, and others involved in the care of the elderly will inevitably see an increase in skin diseases specific to aging. The comprehensive coverage provided by Geriatric Dermatology facilitates the diagnosis and management of these geriatric skin diseases from the common to the rare and unusual.
