This book is intended as a concise and practical guide to the treatment of nail problems through medical and surgical means. It is aimed at the general practitioner, dermatologist and podiatrist and the emphasis throughout is on practical procedures which are in the main relatively simple. Some procedures are more complicated and really require the additional advice of a tutor. There is no similar book on the market which digests the relevant practical points from larger works for those wishing only a concise overview of the principal practical aspects of the subject. After an introductory chapter on anatomy and physiology of the nail unit, the book goes on to describe infections of the nails, signs of systemic disease manifesting in the nails, dermatological diseases of the nails, occupational nail disorders, cosmetology and nail tumours. There then follows a section of nineteen practical procedures which are described step-by-step in detail.
This is a thumbnail sketch, or general overview, of the Biblical story. It is written for those who have a church background and those who do not. A primary goal of this writing is to keep the story simple. Broad historical strokes are taken but highlights of God leading, loving, and reaching out to humankind is always present. The length of this thumbnail sketch is deliberately short in hopes more will read its contents and give greater attention to the mountain peaks that transcend the Biblical landscape. It is a preparation for more serious studies. Some suggested uses of this manuscript would include: those who have no church background and are exploring Christian thought, first time visitors to church, a curriculum for small groups, and preparation for teachers and ministerial students. The age range can cover older children through adolescents and adults. Why? Because God intended His story to be simple! We will begin with the story of the Creation and Fall, make a short stop for the period between the Testaments, and conclude with the ultimate victory occurring in Revelation. There are depths in the story that will take us a lifetime to understand, but the story line of the Bible is no great mystery. It is simple and clear for all of us to understand. Come and see!
M. Gabriel Khan, MD, concisely assembles in a reader friendly format all the clinically useful information that an internist needs in both his daily rounds and a busy office practice to find correct clinical diagnoses and choose optimal pharmacologic therapies for their patients. Highlights include a simplified method for recognition of, and a practical therapeutic approach to, arrhythmias, as well as a more logical approach to drug management of hypertension than that given by the Joint National Committee, instructive algorithms that simplify the diagnosis and treatment of syncope, and extensive diagnostic information on hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. A large number of illustrative electrocardiograms that help to clarify the most often misinterpreted of all cardiologic tests and extensive discussions of practical cardiovascular pharmacology complete this magisterial survey.
