Handbook of Critical Care, Revised Edition
Duncan Wyncoll
Critical Care , 2005, DOI: 10.1186/cc3889
Abstract: The chapters are written in a didactic fashion, and there is very little discussion as to why a particular therapy or course of treatment is recommended. Consequently, it is no surprise that there are no references in the book to any of the major papers that form the critical care evidence base. No reference is made to the various national society guidelines on, for example, the management of trauma, head injury, or nosocomial infection. There is one reference to the Advanced Cardiac Life Support guidelines from the American Heart Association.The handbook clearly has a very North American predisposition, and given its instructive nature this could prove confusing for trainees from Europe. Examples of the potential conflicts include the recommendation for the management of oliguria to 'insert a pulmonary artery flotation catheter, and then confirm filling with a transthoracic echo'. In the section on asthma, the two first-line recommended drugs are albuterol and methylprednisolone – drugs that are rarely used for asthma in Europe. In the section on measuring cardiac output, neither the PiCCO (Pulsion Medical Systems, Munich, Germany) or LiDCO (LiDCO Ltd., Cambridge, UK) device is mentioned, both of which are frequently used in Europe. The section on infection and inflammation is weak, which is surprising given the focus on this topic in the critical care literature over the past 5 years.This book has many positives, including the general clarity, layout and the good overviews of most of the subjects covered. However, I suspect that for some European trainees the advantages would be outweighed by the frustrations that may result from the differences in specific treatment protocols used between North America and Europe.The author(s) declare that they have no competing interests.
Psychological testing: An introduction (2nd edition)  [cached]
Shanya Pillay
South African Journal of Industrial Psychology , 2009, DOI: 10.4102/sajip.v35i1.807
Abstract: The book under review provides a comprehensive introduction to psychological testing. It is divided into five parts, each dealing with a different aspect of testing. Part 1 looks at basic issues surrounding psychological testing. It addresses issues such as the nature of tests, test administration and reliability and validity issues. Generally, the information provided in Part 1 is clear - however, given that these sections essentially introduce the reader to the subject area of psychological testing, it could have been more thorough.

An overview of research methodology: MLA handbook (7th edition)  [cached]
Gayathri, N.,Meenakshi, K.
International Journal of Research Studies in Language Learning , 2013,
Abstract: The most important and essential part of any work of research is the bibliography. It not only authenticates the work of the author, but also helps the future researchers of similar interests to go to the works cited and thereby widen their knowledge. There are different styles or formats which are used in citing the works referred. While the APA is the most preferred style of the researchers in the field of science, the MLA is the preference of those researching in the human sciences department. This is paper is an overview of the MLA Handbook which has assisted millions of researchers across the globe in preparing the bibliography of their research work. The significance of this paper lies in the simplification of the data that is required by the scholar to cite references. Many a times, it becomes tedious and time consuming to go through the entire book for assistance in a particular type of reference. This paper comes in handy for those who would like to get the required help quickly. It discusses and gives the most often used citations in a simple method. It also highlights on those citations which have been updated from the sixth edition of the same book.

Transgenic mouse - Methods and protocols, 2nd edition  [cached]

European Journal of Histochemistry , 2011, DOI: 10.4081/ejh.2011.br9
Abstract: Marten H. Hofner (from the Dept. of Pathology of the Groningen University) and Jan M. van Deursen (from the Mayo College of Medicine at Rochester, MN, USA) provided us with the valuable second edition of Transgenic mouse: in fact, eventhough we are in the –omics era and already equipped with the state-of-the-art techniques in whatsoever field, still we need to have gene(s) functional analysis data to understand common and complex deseases. Transgenesis is still an irreplaceable method and protocols to well perform it are more than welcome. Here, how to get genetic modified mice (the quintessential model of so many human deseases considering how much of the human genes are conserved in the mouse and the great block of genic synteny existing between the two genomes) is analysed in deep and presented in clearly detailed step by step protocols....
Book Review - "The Handbook of International Humanitarian Law " by Dieter Fleck (ed), (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2008, Pp. Xvii-770. ISBN 978-0-19-923250-5)  [cached]
Pierre-Emmanuel Dupont
Caucasian Review of International Affairs , 2009,
Abstract: In the Handbook’s Introduction, Dieter Fleck mentions that the first edition, published in German in 1994[1], was built upon the German Armed Forces’s (Bundeswehr) Manual of international humanitarian law (IHL), an account of Germany’s long-standing involvement in the implementation of IHL[2]. Yet the present edition, ‘no longer connected to a single national manual, […] aims at offering a best practice manual to assist scholars and practitioners worldwide’ (p. xiv).Dr. Fleck draws a contrasted picture of the current implementation of IHL around the world. He highlights, among the recent achievements in this field, the fact that ‘the interrelationship between humanitarian law and the protection of human rights in armed conflicts is largely accepted and better understood today than ever before’. He also observes that : ‘A progressive development of international criminal law has led to increased jurisprudence on war crimes and crimes against humanity by national courts, international ad hoc tribunals, and finally to the establishment of the International Criminal Court (ICC)...
Critical Care Nursing: science and practice, 2nd edition
Samantha Fox
Critical Care , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/cc5060
Abstract: This textbook is ideal for nurses who want to understand practical issues that may be experienced while caring for the critically ill at the bedside.The authors obviously have great knowledge and experience in this arena, and have ensured that they have updated topics from the first edition such as sepsis and neurointensive care.All chapters have sections on trouble shooting, such as resolving outflow problems in peritoneal dialysis and problems associated with electrocardiogram monitoring. These are the sorts of clinical problem that inexperienced nurses have concerns about and want to be able to remedy systematically at the bed space.This book will also appeal to experienced critical care nurses, especially as a reminder if they have not made use of certain skills or experienced certain illnesses for a long time. It will also appeal to pre-registration and post-registration courses in intensive care nursing, especially as it has a 'test yourself' section at the end of each chapter – but it is very easy to cheat because the answers are just under the questions!The book is in a logical order, and highlights the need for critical care skills to be expanded outside the geographical area, improving early recognition of critical illness and improving ward care of the critically ill. As a critical care outreach Clinical Nurse Specialist, this is music to my ears.All critical care nurses need to be aware of the bigger picture, and not isolate themselves from the rest of the hospital.Each chapter discusses care of the critical care patient but further reading would be needed to have in-depth knowledge. It will definitely give all readers a good foundation in critical care nursing.You will need to have a great love of pink and red, as there really is a lack of colour and pictures in the text.I felt the book was easy to read and kept me interested, and I would recommend it to my colleagues.The author declares that they have no competing interests.
