Handhelds in Medicine: A Practical Guide for Clinicians

Handhelds in Medicine: A Practical Guide for Clinicians

Product Details
Author: Handhelds in Medicine
pages: 468 pages
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 0387403299

Summary:
Handheld Computers in Medicine is an essential volume of information needed for all physicians, especially those in the primary care specialties. It is in the tradition of Mark Ebell’s recent successful Springer book and CD-ROM, Evidence-Based Diagnosis: Handbook of Clinical Prediction Rules. (This enables the clinician to make an automatic calculation of risk assessment based on the patient’s presenting symptoms, which are fed into the program. By working with the CD-ROM, a risk calculation can be made in seconds, all within the time period of a standard office visit.) Ebell is a renowned family physician and educator who has devoted his career to assessing and processing clinical information, which is to be used in making an accurate diagnosis and prescribing the correct therapeutics in the shortest time period. If this is to be done correctly, the physician must be able to implement a variety of electronic information bases effectively, and during the time period of a standard office visit. Nothing accomplishes this goal as efficiently as handheld PCs and Palm Pilots. This allows the physician to engage the patient, take a case history, perform a physical examination, access patient records, complete the diagnosis and prescribe the necessary therapeutics and process the bill coding, all without leaving the patient’s side. Depending on the physician’s degree of ‘tech-savvy’ skills, this can be an exhausting and intimidating process. It can be especially complicated to convert an entire office practice, then conform to a particular healthcare organization’s plan of operation. Ebell’s book and CD-ROM set operates as a concise guide to enable any physician and healthcare professional to implement the use of handheld computers into their practice. It is important to note that the spirit of this publication’s goal is to eliminate error and thus raise the level of quality in all aspects of patient care.

Tuberculosis Control in the Western Pacific Region, 2008 Report

Tuberculosis Control in the Western Pacific Region, 2008 Report

The status of the tuberculosis (TB) epidemic and progress in control of the disease has been assessed annually since 1997. This report presents an overview of progress in reducing the burden of TB in the Western Pacific Region (the Region) using data on disease burden and case notification in 2006 and treatment outcomes for patients registered in 2005. The data were collected from 35 countries and areas in the Region using the WHO standard form for reporting surveillance data. The report contains data trends on estimated TB prevalence and mortality, TB notifications by age group and ***, TB-HIV co-infection and other indicators of progress, including treatment outcomes and laboratory capacity and quality. This report presents data on multidrug resistant-TB from various drug resistance surveys from the countries and areas in the Region. This year’s TB Control Report provides more in-depth analysis of trends on TB epidemiology and progress on the implementation of the components of the Regional Strategic Plan for 2006-2010 and Stop TB Strategy. The specific country profiles contained in the report of countries with high burden and intermediate burden of TB and the Pacific provide country-specific information on progress of TB control.
