Taylor's Musculoskeletal Problems and Injuries: A Handbook

Buy
After more than a quarter century as a primary care educator, I am convinced that our graduates enter practice inadequately trained in the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal problems and injuries. One reason for this perceived deficiency is the relatively short duration of primary care training—typically three years for family medicine, general internal medicine, and general pediatrics. During this time, there are just not enough months to teach all a clinician needs to know about diseases and trauma involving the musculoskeletal system. This inadequacy is compounded by the sometimes quirky nature of the problems: that is, for example, the increased risk of nonunion in a fracture of the carpal navicular (scaphoid) bone or the maneuver that can magically reduce a child’s radial head subluxation.

The chapters in this book are from the edited reference book Family Medicine: Principles and Practice, 6th edition, which is widely used by family physicians in the United States and abroad. The publisher and I believe that, in addition to family physicians, the chapters in this book will also be useful to other clinicians providing broad-based care: general internists, general pediatricians, emergency physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. When compared to the large, comprehensive book, this volume will be preferred by some readers because of the physically smaller size and perhaps by the lower cost.

This derivative handbook addresses the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal problems and injuries in the primary care setting. It covers problems involving all areas of the skeleton and related musculature in both children and adults. Since primary care clinicians manage most sports injuries, athletic injuries are discussed in depth. In addition to sprains, strains, and fractures, chapters cover illnesses affecting the musculoskeletal system, various types of arthritis, fibromyalgia, and the complex regional pain syndrome. The pocket-sized book will appeal to a range of family care providers.

Determining Health Expectancies

Health expectancies were developed to address the important question of whether or not we are exchanging longer life for poorer health - replacing quality by quantity.
Health expectancies extend the concept of life expectancy to morbidity and disability by providing a means of dividing life expectancy into life spent in various states

Introduction to Mathematical Logic
Introduction to Mathematical Logic

Logic is sometimes called the foundation of mathematics: the logician studies the kinds of reasoning used in the individual steps of a proof. Alonzo Church was a pioneer in the field of mathematical logic, whose contributions to number theory and the theories of algorithms and computability laid the theoretical foundations of computer...
