Nutrition and Oral Health / edited by Gerry McKenna
Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2021

"This book explores in depth the relationships between nutrition and oral health. Oral health is an integral part of general health across the life course, and this book examines nutritional and oral health considerations from childhood through to old age, with particular attention focused on the consequences of demographic changes. Current knowledge on the consequences of poor diet for the development and integrity of the oral cavity, tooth loss, and the progression of oral diseases is thoroughly reviewed. Likewise, the importance of maintenance of a disease-free and functional dentition for nutritional well-being at all stages of life is explained. Evidence regarding the impact of oral rehabilitation on nutritional status is evaluated, and strategies for changing dietary behaviour in order to promote oral health are described. Nutrition and Oral Health will be an ideal source of information for all who are seeking a clearly written update on the subject." From publisher’s website

Respiratory Monitoring in Mechanical Ventilation / edited by Jian-Xin Zhou, Guang-Qiang Chen, Hong-Liang Li and Linlin Zhang
Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd. 2021

“This book covers the up-to-date advancement of respiratory monitoring in ventilation support as well as detecting the physiological responses to therapeutic interventions to avoid complications. Mechanical ventilation nowadays remains the cornerstone in life saving in critically ill patients with and without respiratory failure. However, conclusive evidences show that mechanical ventilation can also cause lung damage, specifically, in terms of ventilator-induced lung injury.

Respiratory monitoring encloses a series of physiological and pathophysiological measurements, from basic gas exchange and ventilator wave forms to more sophisticated diaphragm function and lung volume assessments. The progress of respiratory monitoring has always been accompanied by advances in technology. However, how to properly conduct the procedures and correctly interpret the data requires clear definition.

The book introduces respiratory monitoring techniques and data analysis, including gas exchange, respiratory mechanics, thoracic imaging, lung volume measurement, and extra-vascular lung water measurement in the initial part. How to interpret the acquired and derived parameters and to illustrate their clinical applications is presented thoroughly. In the following part, the applications of respiratory monitoring in specific diseases and conditions is introduced, including acute respiratory distress syndrome, obstructive pulmonary diseases, patient-ventilator asynchrony, non-invasive ventilation, brain injury with increased intracranial pressure, ventilator-induced diaphragm dysfunction, and weaning from mechanical ventilation.

This book is intended primarily for ICU physicians and other practitioners including respiratory therapists, ICU nurses and trainees who come into contact with patients under mechanical ventilation. This book also provides guidance for clinical researchers who take part in respiratory and mechanical ventilation researches.” From publisher’s website

"Training in oral and maxillofacial surgery is lengthy and demanding, requiring dual qualification and basic training in dentistry and medicine, followed by completion of a higher surgical training programme. The ‘exit examination’ leading to the awarding of the specialty Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (FRCS(OMFS)) represents the final academic step of training in the specialty. For part 2 of the FRCS(OMFS) examination, one day is dedicated to ‘vivas’, where the candidate is interviewed by two senior clinicians in their diagnosis and management of conditions in the specialty. As such it encompasses the entire remit of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, including orthognathic surgery, craniomaxillofacial trauma, surgical oncology and dermatology, oral medicine, craniofacial surgery, dentoalveolar surgery, temporomandibular joint disorders, salivary gland disease, local flap and free tissue transfer, oral implantology and cleft surgery. This daunting syllabus is covered in four viva sessions of thirty minutes, with six five-minute vivas in each session. The aim of this book is to give candidates a structure as to how to answer such scenarios as well as provide clinical subject matter encompassing the range of the specialty. This includes pertinent scenarios that are generally not covered in other FRCS revision books such as ethics, consent and negligence. As such it will be of interest to clinicians in related specialties, including dermatology, oral surgery, ENT, and plastic surgery." From publisher website

"Bruxism is a common parafunction, and over the last 15 years the profession has become aware of just how destructive it can be to the masticatory structures when left untreated. However, because it is still seen as a multifaceted phenomenon that is difficult to treat, many practitioners assume that it is incurable. This book answers these doubts and concerns by outlining the various etiologies and aggravating factors of bruxism, distinguishing the different types of bruxism, and demonstrating how to complete a differential diagnosis. Then, in keeping with the latest evidence, the authors promote a more conservative approach to treatment and outline which treatment strategies to use in different situations" From publisher website
