This title provides veterinary students and non-specialist with a case study base workbook which serves as a guide to effective use and interpretation of clinical chemistry laboratory methods in domestic animals. There are over 100 case studies involving real patients and findings in dogs, cats, horses, lamas, alpacas, pot belled pigs and ferrets. Case studies consist of patient history, physical examination findings, and clinicopthologic data such as CBC, urinalysis, cytology or fluid analysis. A summary is given for each patient that includes a description of follow up tests and response to treatment. Multiple cases of common diseases are included to illustrate the variety of clinciopathologic findings with the same diagnosis depending on individual patient factors. Diagnostic dilemmas in which different diseases may present with similar clinical signs and laboratory data are also included. Published by Teton New Media in the USA and distributed by Manson Publishing outside of North America.

This book provides in-depth information about common clinical laboratory assays that are used to evaluate domestic mammals, including what assays measure, sample or assay conditions that affect results, and what results indicate about the physiologic or pathologic state of a patient. Whenever possible, diseases and conditions are grouped by common mechanisms or processes to promote a conceptual understanding of laboratory data that can be generally applied across many species. New to the second edition are additional disorders, diagnostic tests, illustrations, images, references, and pathophysiologic explanations. This text has proven valuable to students and veterinarians wanting a fundamental understanding of veterinary clinical pathology.

Advanced Practice in Critical Care provides experienced critical care nurses with a clear and distinct evidence base for contemporary critical care practice. Central to the book is the application of research and evidence to practice and therefore, case studies and key critical care clinical situations are used throughout to guide the reader through the patient care trajectory. Each chapter introduces an initial patient scenario and as the chapter progresses, the patient scenario develops with the theoretical perspectives and application. In this way, it is evident how multi-organ dysfunction develops, impacting upon and influencing other body systems, demonstrating the multi-organ impact that is often experienced by the critically ill patient. In this way, consequences of critical illness such as acute renal failure, haemostatic failure and liver dysfunction are explored. Throughout the text, key research findings and critical care treatment strategies are referred to, applied and evaluated in the context of the given patient case study. Advanced assessment techniques are explained and the underlying pathophysiology is discussed in depth. Advanced Practice in Critical Care is an essential resource for experienced practitioners within critical care whom primarily care for patients requiring high dependency or intensive care.

Veterinary Neuroanatomy: A Clinical Approach is written by veterinary neurologists for anyone with an interest in the functional, applied anatomy and clinical dysfunction of the nervous system in animals, especially when of veterinary significance. It offers a user-friendly approach, providing the principal elements that students and clinicians need to understand and interpret the results of the neurological examination. Clinical cases are used to illustrate key concepts throughout. The book begins with an overview of the anatomical arrangement of the nervous system, basic embryological development, microscopic anatomy and physiology. These introductory chapters are followed by an innovative, hierarchical approach to understanding the overall function of the nervous system. The applied anatomy of posture and movement, including the vestibular system and cerebellum, is comprehensively described and illustrated by examples of both function and dysfunction. The cranial nerves and elimination systems as well as behaviour, arousal and emotion are discussed. The final chapter addresses how to perform and interpret the neurological examination. Veterinary Neuroanatomy: A Clinical Approach has been prepared by experienced educators with 35 years of combined teaching experience in neuroanatomy. Throughout the book great care is taken to explain key concepts in the most transparent and memorable way whilst minimising jargon. Detailed information for those readers with specific interests in clinical neuroanatomy is included in the text and appendix. As such, it is suitable for veterinary students, practitioners and also readers with a special interest in clinical neuroanatomy. Contains nearly 200 clear, conceptual and anatomically precise drawings, photographs of clinical cases and gross anatomical specimens Keeps to simple language and focuses on the key concepts Unique ‘NeuroMaps’ outline the location of the functional systems within the nervous system and provide simple, visual aids to understanding and interpreting the results of the clinical neurological examination The anatomical appendix provides 33 high-resolution gross images of the intact and sliced dog brain and detailed histological images of the sectioned sheep brainstem. An extensive glossary explains more than 200 neuroanatomical structures and their function.

REAL-LIFE CASES, TUTORIAL QUESTIONS, NARRATIVE HISTORY Intriguing anecdotal pedagogy, like the alleged arsenical poisonings of Napoleon and President Taylor and the probable mercury overdose of Isaac Newton, is one of the things that set Toxicology: A Case-Oriented Approach apart from other toxicology texts. Based on an undergraduate-graduate combined toxicology course at West Chester University, this innovative text captures readers' interest by combining modern case studies, historical cases, and hundreds of illustrations and tables. Each chapter presents several case scenarios that involve the reader with questions about diagnosis, testing methods, treatment, and other pertinent information. TOXICOLOGY FOR THE LABORATORY AND THE EMERGENCY ROOM In an easy-to-read style, this book covers the major organ systems and reviews the effects of toxins in each system. Most contemporary books are almost entirely clinical or entirely analytical. Toxicology: A Case-Oriented Approach treats each area extensively to benefit students and professionals who need to know aspects of both. It describes diagnosis and treatment of each specific poisonous exposure and discusses chemical basis and the laboratory testing of toxins. This dual perspective, coupled with the book's interesting narrative approach, lets readers quickly absorb the information they need to understand toxicology in the laboratory and in the Emergency Department.
