Lower limb wounds are frequently observed in clinical practice and often present a real challenge for health care practitioners. Lower extremity wound care requires a multidisciplinary approach involving a number of different health care professionals in order to achieve optimum patient care. Nurses and podiatrists, in particular, are frequently involved in the assessment and management of lower extremity wounds, often working in partnership. Lower Extremity Wounds: A problem-based learning approach is the first wound care book that has been written as a joint venture by experienced nurses and podiatrists, all with expert knowledge in wound care. It highlights the importance of multi-professional collaboration to encourage the crossing and dismantling of professional boundaries, to increase understanding of each other's roles, and ultimately to ensure that the patient receives the best available evidence-based interventions during their health care journey. Taking a problem-based learning approach, each of the ten chapters highlights best practice in the management of wounds by type, discusses clinical guidelines and current evidence, and links this theory to a clinical scenario thus bridging the theory to practice gap. Numerous full-colour illustrations are used throughout the book to visually enhance the reader's learning. Aimed at both students and practitioners, this book is essential reading for anyone involved in lower extremity wound care.

Almost 1 in 2 people suffer from problems with leg veins - so if you don't have them then someone close to you will. Venous reflux (the major cause of leg vein problems) can cause tired or aching legs, swollen or itchy ankles. Many people suffering from venous reflux are unaware of the problem, until they develop unsightly varicose veins, thread veins, venous eczema or venous leg ulcers. Many doctors and nurses are not aware of the new information available and still treat their patients inappropriately with creams, bandages or support stockings. "Understanding Venous Reflux - the cause of varicose veins and leg ulcers" has been written by Mark Whiteley, an internationally renowned vein expert. With clear explanations, illustrated by over 50 easy-to-follow diagrams, this book makes the understanding of venous reflux - the underlying cause of varicose veins and most venous problems (such as thread veins, venous leg ulcers, venous eczema, discoloured ankles, etc.) - accessible to most readers, helping them decide on what treatment they should seek. For medical and nursing students, as well as all doctors, nurses and other health care workers who deal with legs and leg vein problems, this is an essential text.

Renowned primatologist Robert Sapolsky offers a completely revised and updated edition of his most popular work, with over 225,000 copies in print Now in a third edition, Robert M. Sapolsky's acclaimed and successful Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers features new chapters on how stress affects sleep and addiction, as well as new insights into anxiety and personality disorder and the impact of spirituality on managing stress. As Sapolsky explains, most of us do not lie awake at night worrying about whether we have leprosy or malaria. Instead, the diseases we fear-and the ones that plague us now-are illnesses brought on by the slow accumulation of damage, such as heart disease and cancer. When we worry or experience stress, our body turns on the same physiological responses that an animal's does, but we do not resolve conflict in the same way-through fighting or fleeing. Over time, this activation of a stress response makes us literally sick. Combining cutting-edge research with a healthy dose of good humor and practical advice, Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers explains how prolonged stress causes or intensifies a range of physical and mental afflictions, including depression, ulcers, colitis, heart disease, and more. It also provides essential guidance to controlling our stress responses. This new edition promises to be the most comprehensive and engaging one yet.
