Limb X-Ray Interpretation provides a comprehensive guide to limb X-ray trauma diagnosis. The content is separated into two distinct parts; part I addresses the technical and professional issues in trauma radiography, from the initial request for an examination to the final image, including the normal and abnormal appearance of bone on radiographs and the classifications of fractures. Part II is subdivided into distinct anatomical regions by chapter describing a systematic approach to the interpretation of X-ray images. Each chapter follows a similar format with core anatomy linked to the normal radiographic anatomy, using over 570 X-ray images and line drawings. The common and less common fractures, together with specific radiological signs of abnormalities, mechanism of injury and subsequent treatments are presented. This book is of of great value to Emergency Nurse Practitioners, Accident and Emergency staff, radiographers, junior doctors, medical students, and physiotherapists.

Many practitioners are now continuing to expand their reporting skills from appendicular skeleton to include the axial skeleton in trauma. Other allied profession may also be reviewing axial skeleton trauma radiographs, for instance nurse practitioners (such as in cases of hip trauma). Many practitioners initially fear reviewing axial skeleton radiographs, understandably as missing an injury may have dire consequences, but with training, audit and care this fear can be overcome; and one can look forward to the challenge of axial radiograph reporting.As axial trauma radiographs can be a difficult to review, the book starts with several chapters, to introduce or revise specific axial trauma. The first chapter discusses mechanisms of injury of major trauma. Followed by a chapter on pelvic trauma. The next chapter looks at reviewing trauma cervical spine radiographs. Then is presented a series of trauma cases of the axial skeleton, on which you are asked to write reports, plus sometimes answer a few questions, (the answers are over the page). This section is divided into six chapters; trauma cases of the pelvis; of the hip and femur; the cervical spine; dorsal and lumber spine; the skull, facial bones and mandible (15 cases in each chapter); the last chapter being 25 mixed cases. Although it is preferably to work your way through the book from start to finish; if you feel you need revision on say cervical spine radiographs, then you can flick to the chapter on reviewing the cervical spine and next to the cases on cervical spine. Each case has appropriate clinical history although this may not be the original history in order to anonymous the case. Some of the cases may not have side markers these may have been removed whilst removing patientsOCO details."

Today many radiographers are trained to report on trauma radiographs. Universities are also training student radiographers to comment on trauma radiographs. It is useful, in some cases essential, that whilst we review the trauma radiograph we also recognise and note any appropriate pathology. For instance a patient attends Accident and Emergency with pain in their knee for several weeks following trauma; the radiographs show no fracture but some signs of a malignant bony tumour, which on further investigation is an osteo sarcoma. As with the other books in the series, this book starts with several chapters by different authors followed by a series of 100 cases.Self-assessment in Musculoskeletal Pathology X-rays will appear to a variety of health professions and like others in the series, is intended to accompany a reporting course and to be used alongside further research and reading.

Chest x-rays are among the most difficult plain film to report. This helpful book combines a simple introduction to the basics of chest x-ray reporting with a good number of sample cases, including actual radiographs. The book begins with the anatomy of the chest x-ray, as visualised on the posterior anterior and lateral images. This is followed by a short chapter on having a systematic approach when reporting chest x-rays, then the silhouette sign as described by Felson, then chapters on consolidation and collapse, heart failure, tumours, lung nodules, chest trauma, positioning of tubes, lines and pacemakers, chronic chest conditions and tuberculosis. Finally, there is a chapter that includes 60 cases for the reader to review. Today, many different healthcare professionals are involved in reviewing chest x-rays. This book will therefore be useful for advanced nurse practitioners, accident and emergency practitioners, and major trauma practitioners, as well as trainee radiologists, radiographers, trainee reporting radiographers and junior medics. Contents include: • The radiographs and anatomy of the chest x-ray • A systematic approach to reviewing the chest x-ray • Felson’s silhouette sign • Consolidation and collapse • Overview of cardiovascular disorders and heart failure • Lung tumours • Lung nodules • Chest trauma • Tubes, lines and pacemakers • Chronic chest conditions • Tuberculosis • 60 cases

Practice nurses and nurse practitioners working alongside general practitioners are required to see and treat patients with a variety of minor and complex conditions. They therefore need skills in history-taking, physical assessment, diagnosing, prescribing and managing long-term conditions. It is assumed that nurses who read this book will have experience in managing the care of babies, children, well young people, people for whom English is not their first language, people with mental health problems and older people with multiple health problems. These case studies are loosely based on interactions that the author has had with patients in Primary Care.

There is a dearth of written work relating specifically to the emergency care of the child. Why this should be the case is perhaps not as perplexing as it may initially appear: although children make up between 25% and 30% of the attendance of many emergency departments, constituting approximately 3.5 million attendances a year (Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) 1999, 2007), there has until recently been little specific provision made for them.Whilst not addressing all of the challenges it is hoped that this work will provide some of the necessary knowledge for emergency nurses and nurse practitioners, emergency care practitioners, medical care practitioners, physiotherapy practitioners, pre-hospital staff and medical staff working in emergency departments, minor injury units, walk-in centres, out of hours services and other emergency care settings, that will enable them to enhance the care of the child with minor injury or illness.

The number of people suffering from this debilitating condition is predicted to grow exponentially over the next decade. This has serious implications for the health services. Investigating heart failure is not cheap even where facilities exist. The drugs used, though effective – often remarkably so – are also costly as are laboratory investigations. These again are not cheap. People with heart failure require frequent admissions to hospital and occupy many beds and much staff attention. All of these factors are set to increase over the next decades. This eclectic collection of papers tackles many of the issues that concern those who care for individuals with heart failure; organisation of services, exercise, palliative care amongst them, but also novel and rarely discussed issues. The book is suited to both pre and post-registered health care students. We do not supply inspection copies but we do supply Examination copies, whereby a course leader has 30 days to evaluate the book, then choose to adopt, purchase or return the book. If you are interested in further details please do not hesitate in contacting me.

It is constantly suggested that, as podiatrists, we need to research, but what does this really mean? This question can be particularly problematic in a profession such as podiatry, where there has not been a strong research basis for our practice in the past. Information is no longer accepted at face value, but instead is scrutinised, criticised, questioned and used to raise other questions. Podiatrists are being prepared to understand, use and undertake their own research. The book will appeal to podiatry practitioners, lecturers and students. It is based on a popular series of articles that appeared in Podiatry Now, which have been updated and edited into this stand-alone resource.
