Occupational medicine at a turning point - Occupational and Environmental Medicine

With the successful control of many of the most serious occupational hazards to health, the focus of occupational medicine in developed countries has shifted to other work related disorders that are rarely fatal but cause substantial disability. This paper hypothesises that many of these disorders do not arise from detectable organic pathology, but rather are a psychologically mediated response to triggering exposures that is conditioned by individual characteristics and cultural circumstances. If correct, this has important implications for the way in which such illness should be managed and prevented. Proposals are made for ways in which the hypothesis could be tested.

Diagnostic Pathology: Infectious Diseases

Diagnostic Pathology: Infectious Diseases takes a comprehensive look at infectious diseases, their anatomic manifestations, and how to ensure a complete and accurate sign out at the microscope. A user-friendly chapter landscape and thousands of high-quality images combine to make this medical reference book a key companion for the general surgical pathologist or resident in training. Comprehensive discussions on how to sign out cases. Formatted into sections by organism type (Virus, Bacteria, Fungi, and Parasite), and further divided by those that can be diagnosed on histological appearance. Species-specific pathologies for finding "zebra" cases.Essential information is listed in a bulleted format with numerous high-quality images to facilitate learning."Key Facts" highlight the quick criteria needed for diagnosis or adequacy evaluation at the time of a procedure.Features clear pictures of diagnostic forms, ancillary diagnostic tools, including microbiology and molecular diagnostics, pathological reaction patterns expected for given organisms, and important common and uncommon pathogens.Explains when and when not to use molecular diagnostics, and discusses histological limitations and how to address them at sign out.

Mechanisms of Yersinia Pathogenesis | NERCE | BEID

The genus of the Gram negative bacterium Yersinia harbors three species that are mammalian pathogens: Y. pestis, the causative agent of plague, is acquired by the bite of an infected flea, and results from direct inoculation of bacteria into the bloodstream. Two other species, Y. enterocolitica, and Y. pseudotuberculosis, are enteric pathogens and acquired by ingestion of contaminated food or water. Y. pestis is believed to have recently evolved from Y. pseudotuberculosis, while Y. pseudotuberculosis and Y. enterocolitica split from a more ancient common ancestor. All three species are highly lymphotropic, with the property of colonizing and replicating in lymphoid organs. While the precise pathologies of the three species differ in humans (enteric Yersiniae tend to cause self-limiting infections of the intestine and mesenteric lymph nodes, while Y. pestis is a disseminated often fatal systemic infection), all three share a common 70 kB virulence plasmid that encodes the well studied Yersinia Type III secretion system and its secreted effector Yersinia outer proteins (Yops). Oral infection of mice with either Y. enterocolitica or Y. pseudotuberculosis also leads to a disseminated infection and thus is a useful model of systemic yersiniosis. The purpose of the Yops appears to be interference with essential aspects of host immune response and cell biology. For example YopH is a tyrosine phosphatase that disrupts actin cytoskeleton dynamics by interfering with focal adhesion protein complexes. In addition, YopH directly blocks T and B cell activation by dephosphorylating essential signaling proteins at the activated B and T cell receptors.

sob-in-heart-failure

A 64 yo male with a history of CHF and COPD arrives with a complaint of acute onset SOB since this morning.  Lung exam is notable for diffuse Rhonchi.  You believe the patient is having a CHF exacerbation, but you’re also concerned for COPD (as well as the multitude of other pathologies that can give you SOB) given the history.  In addition to your standard labs and chest X ray what else might you think to do to evaluate for CHF?

Rubin's Pathology

Rubin's Pathology is a core textbook for medical students taking pathology. Pathology in medical school is generally taught in one of two ways: (1) as a year long course in the second year of medical school, covering principles and systems, or (2) as a two part course, beginning with fundamental principles in the first year of medical school and concluding with systems pathology in the second year of medical school. This text emphasizes concepts that a medical student needs to know without going into unnecessary detail. It features numerous high-quality images and superb four-color illustrations. A companion website offers valuable additional material to enhance learning and teaching.

A Foundation for Neonatal Care

This authoritative guide offers a vital overview including the recent fundamental changes in the care of newborn babies. As well as medical staff, key roles are now played by senior nurses, clinical nurse specialists, pharmacists, advanced neonatal nurse practitioners, nurse consultants, midwives, dieticians, physiotherapists and speech therapists. The involvement of such a diverse range of professional cultures in such a rapidly developing area often leads to competing priorities, complicated by a lack of established guidelines. There is also the added challenge of fetal medicine - an important emerging allied specialty new to many healthcare professionals. This book assists all professionals involved in the provision of neonatal care in understanding the genetic, physiological and biochemical mechanisms which have either led to or are associated with the clinical conditions affecting their patients. With comprehensive chapters on fetal medicine, genetics, inherited biochemical disorders, fundamental physiological concepts, the cardiovascular, renal and respiratory systems, bacterial and transplacental infections, pharmacokinetics, nutrition, and an overview of haemostasis, A Foundation For Neonatal Care aids understanding of the continuum of developmental physiology and pathology which is now required of neonatal care providers.
