Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is an important diagnostic test in pulmonary medicine and cardiology. Capable of providing significantly more information about an individual’s exercise capacity than standard exercise treadmill or 6-minute walk tests, the test is used for a variety of purposes including evaluating patients with unexplained exercise limitation or dyspnea on exertion, monitoring disease progression or response to treatment, determining fitness to undergo various surgical procedures and monitoring the effects of training in highly fit athletes. Introduction to Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing is a unique new text that is ideal for trainees. It is presented in a clear, concise and easy-to-follow manner and is capable of being read in a much shorter time than the available texts on this topic. Chapters describe the basic physiologic responses observed during sustained exercise and explain how to perform and interpret these studies. The utility of the resource is further enhanced by several sections of actual patient cases, which provide opportunities to begin developing test interpretation skills. Given the widespread use of cardiopulmonary exercise testing in clinical practice, trainees in pulmonary and critical care medicine, cardiology, sports medicine, exercise physiology, and occasionally internal medicine, will find Introduction to Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing to be an essential and one of a kind reference.

The Neurology Video Primer is an interactive learning tool in which viewers watch 8-15 minute, content-rich, videos on the basic concepts of neurology and the most common diseases, diagnoses, and treatments available. These videos cover topics needed to master board exams, clerkships, and the basic skills required to be an effective and competent physician. Topics discussed include stroke, epilepsy, headache, neurologic emergencies, demyelinating diseases, neurodegenerative disease, as well as the relevant epidemiology, basic disease mechanisms, diagnostic approaches, and appropriate treatment options that every neurologist should know. Students in medicine, nursing, dentistry, and pharmacy will benefit from gaining a deeper understanding of these core concepts in neurology. In addition, health professionals with more advanced training who want to broaden their knowledge, or even members of the lay public who have an interest in clinical neuroscience, will also enjoy these informative but easy-to-comprehend videos. These short videos put the mastery of the content under the direct control of the viewer. The viewer can study at a pace that meets their individual need, whether at home, on their laptop, or on their smartphone during the morning commute.
