Due to this collection's heavy weight (18 lbs) non-standard shipping costs apply. See shopping cart for details. During 30 years and 135 missions, the U.S. space shuttle carried more crewmembers to orbit than all other launch systems, from all other countries combined, and carried more than 4.5 million pounds of payload to orbit. It was a staggering record of success. Unfortunately, it was accompanied by a tragic record of failure, with two accidents claiming the lives of 14 astronauts as well as other incidents claiming several ground personnel. But, as Richard Truly, an astronaut and NASA administrator, once said, "Flying in space is a bold business. We cannot print enough money to make it totally risk-free." This assertion was not meant as an excuse, simply a statement of fact regarding the physics of space travel and the dangers of chemical rockets. Because it flew for 30 years, most people alive today do not remember a time when the space shuttle was not in the news. The public was enthralled, the politicians somewhat less, and the armchair critics even less so. The space shuttle was meant as a stepping-stone to broader exploration. But the funding and political will never materialized, leaving the vehicle with little meaningful work for most of its flight campaign. Nevertheless, the space shuttle launched a variety of commercial and military satellites, planetary probes to Venus and Jupiter, and three of the four NASA Great Observatories, including the pi�ce de r�sistance, the Hubble Space Telescope. Only near the end was it able to demonstrate its intended purpose, building a space station. Even that, when finished, was only a shell of what had been envisioned when the space shuttle was approved. Unfortunately, having found its stride as the primary support vehicle for the International Space Station, the White House canceled the program, leaving the United States without the ability to launch people to orbit. All of this has left an uncertain legacy for one of the most visible engineering achievements of the 20th Century. This book is not meant to establish that legacy, but to thoroughly document the development, technology, and, to a lesser extent, the flight campaign. We will leave it to future historians to determine the ultimate worthiness of the program. What we can say for certain, though, is that it was one hell of a ride.

History and Physical Examination: A Common Sense Approach provides a comprehensive, accessible foundation to the crucial patient care skill of clinical history taking and ‘head-to-toe’ clinical examination. Through full color illustrations, patient photographs, and video examples, this valuable resource highlights a logical, step-by-step approach to gain clinical competency. The authoritative content is divided into three sections to build and develop students’ practical skills: History Flows, which provide context and practice through clinical scenario work, to logically develop differential diagnoses; Physical Examination Flows, which focus on comprehensive and consistent exams by using the human body as a map; and finally, Comprehensive Flows, which enable the student to apply their history taking and examination tools together to develop a differential diagnosis and a treatment plan—all under the real-world pressure of a time-sensitive office visit. Each section features “Clinical Case Practice” for students to interact and apply the clinical concepts and to prepare for actual practice. By moving beyond discrete symptoms, History and Physical Examination: A Common Sense Approach prepares students not only for practical boards, but for delivering humanistic care in real-world patient encounters.

"The questions serve as a self-assessment tool, allowing students to think through clinical scenarios without answer choices influencing their thought process. Most questions end in "what are the appropriate next steps in managing this patient?"

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder primarily affects boys and male teens, and the symptoms can continue on into adulthood. Consequently, clinicians need to be well-versed in techniques to treat this disorder that are tailored specifically to the needs of males; there are, however, few resources available to them. This guidebook provides a review of the counseling, educational, and medical interventions that can benefit boys and men with ADHD. Kapalka begins with a review of symptoms, etiology, assessment, and diagnosis and then discusses a variety of specific interventions: individual counseling, parenting techniques, classroom interventions, and group counseling techniques. The use of medication in conjunction with counseling is also considered. Throughout all of the topics covered, Kapalka emphasizes what it is like to be male and have ADHD and describes the impacts that masculinity and gender expectations can have on the expression of and response to the disorder.
