The Diabetic Pancreas

The Diabetic Pancreas

Author: Bruno W. Volk, Edward R. Arquilla Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/05/1985

Since the publication of the first edition of The Diabetic Pancreas in 1977, much progress has been made in various areas of diabetes research. While only a rela- tively short while ago diabetes was considered a single disease, in more recent years it has become apparent that it is a heterogeneous group of disorders, all of which are characterized by a decreased tolerance of carbohydrates and most of which have a genetic basis, although the genetic types vary. In more recent years, an International Work Group sponsored by the National Diabetes Data Group of the NIH proposed a now generally accepted classification, according to which the insulin-dependent ketosis-prone diabetes, formerly and inappropriately called the juvenile type, is considered a subclass of diabetes, type 1. Because it can occur at any age, it was recommended that the diagnosis based on age be eliminated. The non-insulin-dependent, non-keto sis-prone type of diabetes, which is not secondary to other diseases or conditions, and which was formerly called matu- rity-onset diabetes, was considered a second subclass, type II, because although this form usually develops after age 40, it also occurs in young persons, who do not require insulin or are not ketotic. Although this classification is not entirely agreed upon by all diabetologists, for practical purposes it has been generally accepted and has been utilized by the contributors to this volume.

Handbook of Intensive Care

Handbook of Intensive Care

Author: R. S. Atkinson, J. J. Hamblin, J. E. C. Wright Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/01/1981

The experience of active management of patients in the intensive care unit of a busy district general hospital has convinced us of the value of team work which, allied to enthusiasm and clinical expertise, provides the recipe for success. It is in this spirit that the present volume has been written and the authors are grateful to their colleagues who have given advice. In some cases this has been extended to the compilation of a special chapter and we are indebted to Dr. Dathan, Dr. Layton and Dr. Rushman for their contributions. In this book we have attempted to set down the principles of intensive care as they concern the typical ~istrict general hospital without specialist units or the back up of research departments. In doing this we have tried to maintain simplicity and to give practical advice. The book is not aimed at the specialist in intensive care who can draw on his own extensive experience, but rather at the junior doctor who takes his tum working in the intensive care unit. In particular we have considered the needs of those who require some information outside the parent speciality. We are also aware than in many British hospitals consultants assume a duty responsibility for patients in intensive care units and we hope that the information in this volume may be of some help to them. Trained nurses should also find this book ofvalue.
