The often hilarious, at times horrifying and occasionally heartbreaking diaries of a former junior doctor, and the story of why he decided to hang up his stethoscope!
Welcome to 97-hour weeks. Welcome to life and death decisions. Welcome to a constant tsunami of bodily fluids. Welcome to earning less than the hospital parking meter. Wave goodbye to your friends and relationships . . .
Welcome to the life of a junior doctor.
Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, comedian and former junior doctor Adam Kay’s This Is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking by turns, these diaries are everything you wanted to know – and more than a few things you didn’t – about life on and off the hospital ward. And yes, it may leave a scar.

Peretz Lavie, “Restless Nights: Understanding Snoring and Sleep Apnea”

People with severe sleep apnea may struggle for breath all through the night, not breathing for as long as ninety seconds at a time during their sleep. This syndrome, which affects at least four percent of men and two percent of women, can cause daytime fatigue, traffic and work accidents, deteriorating cognitive abilities, and cardiovascular problems. Yet until now there has been no accessible discussion of the history, physiology, and risk factors of sleep apnea. In this book Peretz Lavie, an expert in sleep research, tells the complete story of sleep apnea for the first time.
The book provides:
• an explanation of the symptoms of sleep apnea, including the most important one, snoring;
• an up-to-date description of the risk factors;
• a clear explanation why sleep apnea causes cardiovascular problems;
• a discussion of children’s breathing disorders in sleep;
• advice on how to get a consultation and diagnosis;
• evaluations of the treatments currently available;
• practical recommendations on how to live with the syndrome;
• interviews with the key figures in sleep apnea research;
• and more.

Regarding longevity and increase of chronic diseases traditional medical care faces tremendous financial and human resource problems. Is self service medicine as follow up of traditional care or as an approach in its own right the answer? Is internet the place where self service medicine takes place? The book distinguishes stages of such an endeavor. It offers an architecture model and client appraisal schemes as tools to design and critically assess consumer health informatics services. Selected examples teach the usage of the tools. Patient safety, legal and ethical appraisal, and business models add to the systematic coverage.

Plagues and Peoples by William H. McNeill

English | October 27th, 2010 | ASIN: B0047747QK, ISBN: 0385121229, 0385112564 | 370 pages | AZW3 | 0.88 MB

Upon its original publication, Plagues and Peoples was an immediate critical and popular success, offering a radically new interpretation of world history as seen through the extraordinary impact–political, demographic, ecological, and psychological–of disease on cultures.
From the conquest of Mexico by smallpox as much as by the Spanish, to the bubonic plague in China, to the typhoid epidemic in Europe, the history of disease is the history of humankind. With the identification of AIDS in the early 1980s, another chapter has been added to this chronicle of events, which William McNeill explores in his new introduction to this updated editon.
Thought-provoking, well-researched, and compulsively readable, Plagues and Peoples is that rare book that is as fascinating as it is scholarly, as intriguing as it is enlightening. “A brilliantly conceptualized and challenging achievement” (Kirkus Reviews), it is essential reading, offering a new perspective on human history.
