Nutritional Pathophysiology of Obesity and Its Comorbidities: A Case-Study Approach challenges students and practitioners to understand the role of nutrients within the pathophysiology and development of disease, specifically those diseases which develop as a result of obesity. Through a case-based approach, the author presents complex clinical scenarios that require multiple treatment strategies, including targeted diet modification as an adjuvant to medical therapy. The book is divided into 9 modules and 5 appendices each of which covers aspects of obesity and its comorbidities. Within each module, a case is detailed with relevant history, laboratory and physical data, and follow-up information. Each case is followed by a resource section which delineates current understanding of the pathophysiology of the condition, as well as the actions of nutrients and food components shown to modify these processes. A "further readings" section cites current supporting clinical and basic literature as well as published guidelines. Explores how obesity is a key player in the pathophysiology of many diseases, including diabetes mellitus, chronic renal failure, hypertension, and atherosclerosis Integrates current understandings of the molecular mechanisms of nutrient action on the processes of disease development and treatment Presents students and early practitioners with complex clinical scenarios through a practical case-based approach

Syncope represents a multidisciplinary issue in medicine, often involving cardiologists, neurologists, emergency medicine specialists, general practitioners , geriatricians and other clinicians. However, terminology, methodology and guidelines differ making the issue more complex. The Editors of this book present a thorough multidisciplinary review of the topic. Guideline-based, they have assembled a team of key opinion leaders in the study and management of syncope. The first section of the book discusses the scientific basis behind the diagnosis and management of syncope going into detail regarding the pathways leading to syncope symptoms and the pathology behind them. The second section of the book then takes a more practical approach defining the practice of syncope management and including a number of case histories explaining the pearls and pitfalls of the current guidelines.

A common goal of human and veterinary medicine is to prevent and cure disease. To reach this goal, there must be a greater investment in the pathophysiology of diseases. Simply put, reductionist methodology fails to answer all of the questions. Pathophysiology represents a new approach to understanding the nature of disease processes, an approach already being embraced in human medicine. By integrating the basic sciences with pathology and the clinical sciences, Veterinary Pathophysiology bridges a significant and widening gulf in the veterinary professional curriculum. The aim of this trailblazing text is to be scholarly—yet practical—with a focus on the recognition and prevention of early dysfunction. In contrast to modern clinical veterinary medicine, which has focused progressively on the prescription of medications for individual symptoms and signs of disease, this text gives attention to understanding the functional changes that accompany disease. To offset over reliance on pharmacotherapy, Veterinary Pathophysiology offers insight into the interaction of the functional components of the mammalian body and their reaction not only to disease, but also to the risk of imbalances introduced by dietary and therapeutic manipulation. Veterinary Pathophysiology will supplement existing textbooks in general or introductory pathology, and veterinary internal medicine, by introducing a new framework for thinking about the nature of disease. The integrated problem-based approach of this book addresses the changing needs of veterinary college curricula, and will be a key resource book for problem-based approaches to learning. Veterinary Pathophysiology is an invaluable text for the practicing veterinarian, as well as veterinary students and instructors in general pathology, pathogenic microbiology, parasitology and immunology, physiology, neurobiology, oncology, toxicology, and pharmacology. This unique text offers students and clinicians the most comprehensive introduction to understanding the interactions between organs and functional systems that underlie infectious and metabolic diseases. With chapter contributions from 25 international authors, this title is the definitive text and reference in veterinary pathophysiology. It belongs on the desk of every veterinary student, and in the library of every instructor or clinician interested in a deeper understanding of animal diseases.
