Killer Germs, Barry E. Zimmerman, David J. Zimmerman
7 Barry E. Zimmerman, David J. Zimmerman Killer Germs
McGraw-Hill 247921 USA 2003 Revised and Updated 0071409262 / 9780071409261 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Discover the unseen assassins that plague humanity. Until recently, most of us went about our daily lives with a false sense of public health security. Epidemics were a thing of the past, the AIDS crisis had diminished, and an annual vaccination kept the flu at bay. Then, in late 2001, all of those illusions of public health safety were suddenly shattered. A litany of terrifying images and events became all to familiar, from federal agents surreally swathed in biohazard suits to the daily evacuation of major government buildings for anthrax decontamination. The lethal power of microscopic organisms - no longer confined to the lab - permeated our collective psyches, forcing us to confront the serious threat posed by killer germs.This updated edition of Barry and David Zimmerman's classic on the subject offers a riveting retrospective of the havoc-wreaking microbes of the past as well as an engrossing exploration of emerging threats, including a new chapter on bioterrorism. In these pages, you'll discover: what makes smallpox the most potentially devastating of all bioweapons, and how prepared we are to fight it; why tuberculosis - already responsible for 2 billion deaths - is on the rise in the United States, Canada, and Europe; how antibiotic overload might one day turn a simple paper cut or skinned knee into a source of fatal infection; and why virologists fear that an easily transmissible, highly virulent superflu - strong enough to rival the strain that killed millions in 1918 - is imminent. From the bygone bubonic plague to the modern nightmare of Ebola, "Killer Germs" offers a fascinating examination of the horrors humanity has faced and the actions required to provide hope for the future. 272 pages.

Gender and the Professional Predicament in Nursing, Celia Davies
14 Celia Davies Gender and the Professional Predicament in Nursing
Open University Press 226298 Great Britain 1996 0335194028 / 9780335194025 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Gender and the Professional Predicament in Nursing examines the ways in which our understanding of nursing is gendered, and how our notion of nursing is connected to our idea of what it is to be a woman. It explores the implications this connection has for the status of nursing as a profession, and re-examines some of the fundamental questions that the nursing profession has tried to address, such as: * what is nursing care? * who should do it? * why is it so difficult to manage the provision of nursing care? Gender and the Professional Predicament in Nursing demonstrates that once nurses try to define and shape the nature of their work they are marginalized or silenced. Frequent descriptions of them as 'sentimental', 'divided' or 'incompetent' highlight the need to understand nurses' exclusion from policy debates, and why their voices are so seldom heard. Celia Davies contends that in a society divided by gender, defining nursing as women's work is deeply contradictory. We value nurses but devalue nursing. She suggests that alongside the debates about managerial efficiency in the NHS we need another kind of debate about how we organize health and social care, about what we mean by professionalism and about the worth of caring work. This book is important reading for students of women's studies, nursing, allied professions in health and medicine, policy makers and human resource managers. 220 pages.

Nurses and Doctors at Work - rethinking Professional Boundaries, Deidre Wicks
15 Deidre Wicks Nurses and Doctors at Work - rethinking Professional Boundaries
Allen & Unwin 226515 Australia 1999 1864485779 / 9781864485776 Softcover Good Condition In Nurses and Doctors at Work, Deidre Wicks looks at nurses and their relations with doctors at work. Drawing on extended observation and one-to-one interviews, she explores many aspects of nursing work which are rarely discussed. Her exploration includes incidents which reveal both cooperation and contestation with doctors and their medical goals and priorities. Wicks constructs a complex and nuanced picture of nurse-doctor relations. She uncovers the tension between structure and agency in nursing work, and explores the ways in which nurses demonstrate their capacity as knowledgeable actors within the constraints of gendered, institutional structures. She also shows how nurses' discourses of healing, dating from pre-Nightingale days, have survived into the present, even when they are in opposition to conventional medical practice. Wicks argues that nurses are constantly involved in both undermining and constructing the sexual division of labour with doctors. Nurses and Doctors at Work is essential reading for anyone interested in the sociology of nursing and the sexual division of labour. 202 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Health::Medical; Medicine & Health; ISBN: 1864485779. ISBN/EAN: 9781864485776. Inventory No: 226515. Paperback

16 Dorcas Sharp Hoover House Calls and Hitching Posts
Good Books 237761 USA 1992 1561484386 Hardcover Very Good Condition Near Fine Medical technology meets rural, Amish values of simplicity, home health remedies, and unwavering faith in divine providence when a country-boy-turned-country doctor returns to his roots in Ohio. Medical technology meets rural values of simplicity, home health remedies, and unwavering faith in divine providence when a country-boy-turned-country-doctor returns to his roots. House Calls and Hitching Posts is a sometimes humorous and often intimate account of Dr. Elton Lehman's 36 years practicing medicine among the Amish of Wayne, Holmes, and surrounding counties in Ohio, for which he was named Country Doctor of the Year. Now you can witness house calls and private moments between doctors and patients. Joe brings his dismembered fingers to the office in a coffee can filled with kerosene. Katie delivers a boy for the doctor's first home-birth. And three-year-old Davy rallies to overcome a life-threatening illness at birth only to be crushed under a tractor wheel. Hoover captures in sometimes local vernacular the joys and dilemmas of a family practitioner among a rural and predominantly-Amish community. Includes two galleries of photographs from Dr. Lehman's distinguished career. 357 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Blood: An Epic History of Medicine and Commerce, Douglas Starr
17 Douglas Starr Blood: An Epic History of Medicine and Commerce
Warner Books 247591 Great Britain 2000 075153000X / 9780751530001 Softcover Near Fine Condition The story of blood is a story of transformation, divided into three eras. The first period, from antiquity to the early twentieth century, involves the transformation of blood from a magical substance - the blood of Christ as holy sacrament - to a component of human anatomy, capable of being studied and turned into a source of healing. In the next era, which lasts until the end of the Second World War, the scientific curiosity of blood becomes a strategic material. We see medical scientists master the resource, learning the techniques of mass collections and storage, ironically aided in their research by the battlefield necessities of two world wars. In the final period, the global traffic in blood-products explodes, saving the lives of untold transfusion recipients and haemophiliacs, but resulting in some of the worst medical calamities western science has known.Is blood a gift of charity or a pharmaceutical product, no more precious than, say, penicillin? The way in which societies decide to answer this question will determine how we deal with this precious yet dangerous resource in the years to come. 525 pages. Illustrated with black and white photograph. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Health::Medical; Medicine & Health; ISBN: 075153000X. ISBN/EAN: 9780751530001.
