Download or read book Nausea and Vomiting written by Kenneth L. Koch and published by Springer. This book was released on 2016-12-08 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume provides a comprehensive and state-of-the-art text for health care professionals who are interested in the diagnosis and treatment of nausea and vomiting. Because the majority of causes of nausea and vomiting arise from disorders of the gastrointestinal system, the text emphasizes the GI system by organ from esophagus to colon. It also reviews how disorders of the abdominal wall, the endocrine system, and autonomic and central nervous systems can contribute to nausea and vomiting syndromes that can be difficult to diagnose. Various treatment modalities are presented and organized in terms of drug treatments, electrical stimulation devices, and dietary therapy and nutritional support. Furthermore, the book is enhanced by chapters on the pathophysiology of nausea, the pathophysiology of vomiting, the physiological changes in the brain during nausea and vomiting, and the psychological underpinnings of nausea and vomiting. And because many children are afflicted with unexplained nausea and vomiting, a chapter devoted to pediatric patients is also included. Written by authorities in the field, Nausea and Vomiting: Diagnosis and Treatment is a valuable resource that will help practitioners and healthcare providers consider specific diagnoses in treating the noxious and burdensome symptoms of nausea and vomiting.

Book Nausea and Vomiting  Mechanisms and Treatment

Download or read book Nausea and Vomiting Mechanisms and Treatment written by Christopher J. Davis and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 2012-12-06 with total page 191 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The following papers were presented at an international symposium on the mechanisms and treatment of nausea and vomiting in man held in Oxford in 1984. I believe that this meeting was the first occasion on which representatives from such a wide variety of scientific and clinical specialities had come together to review and debate the spectrum of the vomiting phenomenon. An attempt was made to put before an invited international audience all the pertinent facts on the different facets of the topic and then to encourage extensive discussion of the contentious issues. The first day of the meeting was devoted to the basic science ap proach to the problem and the second day to the more clinical aspects. This format has been broadly retained in the layout of the book, with the addition of summary chapters reviewing each day's contributions and focusing upon areas of particular importance. Acknowledgement must here be made to the enormous input from the many participants who either spoke in the debate or rose and themselves gave small presenta tions in addition to those of the invited speakers. The meeting occurred at a time of increasing interest in the problem of nausea and vomiting, especially because of its importance in cancer chemotherapy and radiation therapy, and even in space travel.

Book Prevention of Nausea and Vomiting in Cancer Patients

Download or read book Prevention of Nausea and Vomiting in Cancer Patients written by Matti Aapro and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 2013-11-12 with total page 63 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Treatment tolerance is a challenge for most cancer patients, and it is therefore essential that healthcare professionals (HCPs) are quick to recognize adverse events and implement management strategies to address them. Prevention of Nausea and Vomiting in Cancer Patients provides comprehensive guidance on managing nausea and vomiting, which are common and often severe adverse events experienced by patients receiving chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The book refers to the latest American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO), and Multinational Association for Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) guidelines and will be a useful resource for oncologists, oncology fellows, general physicians, and other HCPs wishing to learn more about the effective management of chemotherapy-and radiotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting in cancer patients.

Book Fast Facts  Chemotherapy Induced Nausea and Vomiting

Download or read book Fast Facts Chemotherapy Induced Nausea and Vomiting written by Rudolph M. Navari and published by Karger Medical and Scientific Publishers. This book was released on 2016-04-18 with total page 90 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Few side effects of cancer treatment are more feared by patients than nausea and vomiting. Failure to control these symptoms on the first day of chemotherapy increases the risk of them occurring on subsequent days and in subsequent cycles of chemotherapy, and can often result in patients refusing further cancer treatment. Very effective antiemetics are available to prevent this from happening, but do you know how best to use them? 'Fast Facts: Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea and Vomiting' presents the evidence for the clinical agents that can prevent CINV, along with the recommendations for their use in various clinical settings using recently established international guidelines. Correct administration of prophylactic antiemetics in relation to the emetogenicity of the chemotherapy being given not only improves patients’ quality of life during treatment but also adherence to subsequent cancer treatments, thus improving overall outcomes. This refreshingly readable handbook is therefore a must-read resource for all health professionals in a position to make this kind of a difference. Contents: • Definitions and pathophysiology • Types of CINV and risk factors • Antiemetic agents • Prevention and management of acute and delayed CINV • Treatment of breakthrough, refractory and anticipatory CINV • Prevention and treatment of chemotherapy-induced nausea • Barriers and opportunities in CINV management

Book excerpt: Nausea is a complex sensation that results from the interaction of certain fixed biological factors, such as gender, with changeable psychological factors, such as anxiety. This is the first book to provide a complete, in-depth explanation of what we know about nausea, along with the latest research results on its causes and treatment. As it is the product of long-term collaboration between scientists from the three main approaches to studying and treating nausea--psychology, gastroenterology, and physiology--the information this book provides is both comprehensive and well integrated. The book is divided into two parts, on mechanisms and management, respectively, and four sections. The chapters in Section I introduce the concept of nausea as a protective control mechanism with individual dynamic thresholds, explain the function of nausea, review past and present conceptions of nausea, and describe the prevalence of nausea in different conditions.Section II includes four basic chapters that review what is known about the physiological bases of nausea. Other chapters explore the roles of the central nervous system, autonomic nervous system, endocrine system, and gastric dysrhythmias. Section III presents the difficult problem of measuring nausea, with chapters focusing on measuring nausea in humans and studying it in animals.Section IV forms the second part of the book, on the management of nausea. The main chapters cover nausea and its treatment in several conditions, including chronic nausea, diabetes, pregnancy, post-operative, cancer and its treatment, and provocative motion. A final chapter discusses future research, including three preliminary studies of novel treatment approaches.

Book Sartre s Nausea

Download or read book Sartre s Nausea written by Alistair Rolls and published by Rodopi. This book was released on 2005 with total page 222 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Twenty-five years after his death, critics and academics, film-makers and journalists continue to argue over Sartre's legacy. But certain interpretations have congealed around his iconic text Nausea, tending to confine it within the framework provided by the later philosophical work, Being and Nothingness. This volume opens up the text to a range of new approaches within the fields of English and Comparative Literature, as well as Philosophy and French Studies, under the headings: 'Text', 'Context', and 'Intertext' the textual strategies at work within the novel; the literary, cultural and philosophical context of its production; and the intertextual web within which it is situated. This volume will interest a wide public of teachers, students and all those who want to reconsider Sartre's legacy in the twenty-first century.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Prevention and treatment of nausea and emesis are important issues in a patients wellbeing in the clinical setting as well as for the outpatient. Various and still partly unresolved pathomechanisms play a role in nausea and emesis in humans. It is therefore important to compare results from preclinical research in animal models with results from clinical studies. This book combines an overview of the preclinical research on antiemetic drugs and state-of-the art reviews on the prevention and treatment of nausea and emesis. Established treatment regimens are compared with new interesting compounds in clinical trials. An up-to-date overview of the selection of antiemetic drugs, of their dosage and route of administration is given for clinical conditions such as emetogenic anti-cancer chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, and hyperemesis gravidarum. The treatment of nausea and emesis in opioid therapy and in motion sickness is equally outlined. Whereas this book should serve the clinician in making the right choice for every patients need, it also pays significant attention to the interests of scientists in the fields of oncology, nutrition, gastroenterology, obstetrics and gynecology as well as anaesthesia.
