Principles and Practice in Ophthalmic Assisting: A Comprehensive Textbook meets that need, covering all subject areas in detail while also maintaining a readable, user-friendly style. Editors Janice Ledford and Al Lens have gathered a prestigious team of over 40 contributors, all of them ophthalmic and optometric medical personnel, who actively perform the tasks they write about. Their time-tested expertise is like having a group of specialists right by your side to show how it’s done and answer questions. From A-scan to zygoma, Principles and Practice in Ophthalmic Assisting: A Comprehensive Textbook includes everything ophthalmic and para-optometric personnel need to know to effectively perform their duties, assist their patients, and advance their careers. Each chapter is written in a friendly manner and follows an established framework, making it easy to digest any new information or as a quick reference to the material needed. Chapters also include valuable “tricks of the trade” that could only come from authors with intimate knowledge of their topics. Topics covered: General ophthalmic knowledge Ophthalmic skills Optical skills Ophthalmic medical sciences Surgical services and skills Administrative skills Whether perfecting current skills, learning new ones, or studying for exams, Principles and Practice in Ophthalmic Assisting: A Comprehensive Textbook makes both a perfect learning tool for students and a complete reference tool for staff whether they are new to the eyecare industry or have years of experience.

Principles of Biomedical Informatics, Second Edition
₱ 9,687.00
Galleon

This second edition of a pioneering technical work in biomedical informatics provides a very readable treatment of the deep computational ideas at the foundation of the field. Principles of Biomedical Informatics, 2nd Edition is radically reorganized to make it especially useable as a textbook for courses that move beyond the standard introductory material. It includes exercises at the end of each chapter, ideas for student projects, and a number of new topics, such as: • tree structured data, interval trees, and time-oriented medical data and their use • On Line Application Processing (OLAP), an old database idea that is only recently coming of age and finding surprising importance in biomedical informatics • a discussion of nursing knowledge and an example of encoding nursing advice in a rule-based system • X-ray physics and algorithms for cross-sectional medical image reconstruction, recognizing that this area was one of the most central to the origin of biomedical computing • an introduction to Markov processes, and • an outline of the elements of a hospital IT security program, focusing on fundamental ideas rather than specifics of system vulnerabilities or specific technologies. It is simultaneously a unified description of the core research concept areas of biomedical data and knowledge representation, biomedical information access, biomedical decision-making, and information and technology use in biomedical contexts, and a pre-eminent teaching reference for the growing number of healthcare and computing professionals embracing computation in health-related fields. As in the first edition, it includes many worked example programs in Common LISP, the most powerful and accessible modern language for advanced biomedical concept representation and manipulation. The text also includes humor, history, and anecdotal material to balance the mathematically and computationally intensive development in many of the topic areas. The emphasis, as in the first edition, is on ideas and methods that are likely to be of lasting value, not just the popular topics of the day. Ira Kalet is Professor Emeritus of Radiation Oncology, and of Biomedical Informatics and Medical Education, at the University of Washington. Until retiring in 2011 he was also an Adjunct Professor in Computer Science and Engineering, and Biological Structure. From 2005 to 2010 he served as IT Security Director for the University of Washington School of Medicine and its major teaching hospitals. He has been a member of the American Medical Informatics Association since 1990, and an elected Fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics since 2011. His research interests include simulation systems for design of radiation treatment for cancer, software development methodology, and artificial intelligence applications to medicine, particularly expert systems, ontologies and modeling. Develops principles and methods for representing biomedical data, using information in context and in decision making, and accessing information to assist the medical community in using data to its full potential Provides a series of principles for expressing biomedical data and ideas in a computable form to integrate biological, clinical, and public health applications Includes a discussion of user interfaces, interactive graphics, and knowledge resources and reference material on programming languages to provide medical informatics programmers with the technical tools to develop systems

Dynamic NMR Spectroscopy (NMR Basic Principles and Progress)
₱ 9,693.00
Galleon

Since the first successful NMR experiments in 1946 it was well appreciated that dynamic processes play an important role in the NMR spectroscopy of bulk matter [1]. Early theories on the dependence of the relaxation parameters Tl and T2 on the motions of nuclear spins were successful in explaining the dipolar broadening of the NMR signal in solids and the motional narrowing in liquids [2]. With the discovery of chemical shifts and spin-spin couplings another type of dynamical process affect­ ing the NMR line shape became apparent, the chemical exchange. As a consequence, dynamical NMR studies split into two groups differing not only in the dynamical topics but also in the method of investigation: physical studies of the motion of spins in liquids and solids by measurement of the relaxation times of single resonances and, on the other hand, chemical studies based on band shape analysis of NMR spectra recorded under steady state conditions. The two fields of research lost some of their basic differences with the development of the Fourier transform NMR method [3], which allows the measurement of relaxation times of different resonances at the same time, i. e. the study of differential motional behavior of different parts of mole­ cules, thus providing a new tool in conformational analyses. For example, informa­ tion can be obtained by this method on the relative importance of overall motions and internal motions [4].

Principles of Mössbauer Spectroscopy (Studies in Chemical Physics)
₱ 9,703.00
Galleon

The emergence of M6ssbauer spectroscopy as an important experi­ mental technique for the study of solids has resulted in a wide range of applications in chemistry, physics, metallurgy and biophysics. This book is intended to summarize the elementary principles of the technique at a level appropriate to the advanced student or experienced chemist requiring a moderately comprehensive but basically non-mathematical introduction. Thus the major part of the book is concerned with the practical applications of Mossbauer spectroscopy, using carefully selected examples to illustrate the concepts. The references cited and the bibliography are intended to provide a bridge to the main literature for those who subseouent­ ly require a deeper knowledge. The text is complementary to the longer research monograph, 'Mossbauer Spectroscopy', which was written a few years ago in co-authorship with Professor N.N. Greenwood, and to whom I am deeply indebted for reading the preliminary draft of the present volume. I also wish to thank my many colleagues over the past ten years, and in particular Dr. R. Greatrex, for the many stimu­ lating discussions which we have had together. However my greatest debt is to my wife, who not only had to tolerate my eccen­ tricities during the gestation period, but being a chemist herself was also able to provide much useful criticism of the penultirna te draft.
