Expeditionary Surgery At Sea

Matthew D. Tadlock Springer Nature

Currently, no comprehensive practical surgical textbook or other reference exists for the management of injured and other surgical patients at sea. This text focuses on the increasingly important field of medical and surgical management of patients in the modern expeditionary maritime environment. The editors and contributors to this new handbook are a group of physicians, nurses, and corpsmen with extensive experience in caring for patients in the expeditionary maritime environment, designing and implementing current doctrine and policy, and publishing peer-reviewed articles focused on these topics. This handbook takes the approach of a "how to" manual for the management of combat or disaster victims, beginning at the point of injury and proceeding through each stage of care until they leave the maritime environment. This includes sections on prehospital care, triage, en-route care, and maritime mass casualty management, as well as additional chapters covering unique aspects of maritime platforms, capabilities, and missions. The bulk of the book focuses on the initial patient evaluation and resuscitation as well as the operative and perioperative phases of care including prolonged casualty care. The primary focus throughout the book is on simple, practical, and proven practices that can be easily understood and implemented by physicians and independent providers of any experience level who may find themselves in similar situations. For the clinical chapters, each begins with a clinical vignette relevant to the chapter based on actual patients or maritime scenarios experienced by the authors demonstrating the various challenges that can occur caring for injured and surgical patients at sea while deployed on maritime and amphibious platforms. When appropriate, each clinical chapter will conclude by describing the recommended management and outcome of the patient(s) presented in the vignette that opened the chapter. The style is plain and direct language, avoiding scientific jargon and unnecessary complexity whenever possible. Each chapter begins with 5 to 10 bullet points that summarize the key information or “BLUF” (bottom line up front) from that chapter and conclude with common tips and pitfalls, as well as recommended high-yield resources for the entire maritime surgical team.

Framing Opioid Prescribing Guidelines For Acute Pain

National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine National Academies Press

The opioid overdose epidemic combined with the need to reduce the burden of acute pain poses a public health challenge. To address how evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for prescribing opioids for acute pain might help meet this challenge, Framing Opioid Prescribing Guidelines for Acute Pain: Developing the Evidence develops a framework to evaluate existing clinical practice guidelines for prescribing opioids for acute pain indications, recommends indications for which new evidence-based guidelines should be developed, and recommends a future research agenda to inform and enable specialty organizations to develop and disseminate evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for prescribing opioids to treat acute pain indications. The recommendations of this study will assist professional societies, health care organizations, and local, state, and national agencies to develop clinical practice guidelines for opioid prescribing for acute pain. Such a framework could inform the development of opioid prescribing guidelines and ensure systematic and standardized methods for evaluating evidence, translating knowledge, and formulating recommendations for practice.

Alternative Proteins

Alaa El-Din A. Bekhit CRC Press

In the last decade, there has been substantial research dedicated towards prospecting physiochemical, nutritional and health properties of novel protein sources. In addition to being driven by predictions of increased population and lack of a parallel increase in traditional protein sources, main drivers for the rise in novel proteins/ novel foods research activities is linked to significant changes in young consumers’ attitudes toward red meat consumption and their interest in new alternative protein products. Alternative Proteins: Safety and Food Security Considerations presents up-to-date information on alternative proteins from non-meat sources and examines their nutritional and functional roles as food sources and ingredients. Emphasis is placed on the safety of these novel proteins and an evaluation of their potential contribution to food security. Motivations for novel proteins and restrictions for their use are also discussed. Key Features: Explains potential improvements to alternative proteins through the employment of novel processing techniques. Contains the first review on keratin as an alternative protein source. Explores first comprehensive evaluation of the religious aspects of novel proteins. Describes methods for the detection and evaluation of health hazards. Discusses guidelines, regulatory issues and recommendations for food safety Additionally, this book covers fundamental and recent developments in the production of alternative proteins, and examines safety and consumer acceptability wherever information is available. The sources and processing options for alternative proteins and their impact on final product characteristics are also covered. A collective contribution from international researchers who are active in their field of research and have made significant contributions to the the food sciences, this book is beneficial to any researcher interested in the the food science and safety of alternative proteins.
