Effectiveness and Satisfaction in Antenatal Care

Author: M. Enkin,I. Chalmers

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Category: Medical

The potential contribution of antenatal care to health is enormous. However, if this potential is to be fully realised the content and organisation of that care must be more imaginatively conceived and realised and must take into account the uncomfortable paradox that antenatal care is a mixture of science and magic. This book faces that paradox, asking: 'what in antenatal care has been shown by proper scientific method to work?'; 'what is questionable dogma?'; 'what is magic?; 'what should be done now?'. This volume is intended not only for those professionals giving the care and for the potential mothers reveiving it, but also for all those who influence decisions concerning the future of antenatal care, such as politicians, researchers and the public in general.

Der Traum vom ewigen Leben

Der alte Menschheitstraum von ewiger Jugend und unendlichem Leben scheint der Wirklichkeit näher zu rücken. Vor kurzer Zeit erklärten Forscher der Yale University, dass wir bis zum Jahr 2050 genügend Kenntnisse hätten, um den Tod aufzuhalten. Auf welche Fakten stützt sich diese kühne Behauptung? Und was wäre, wenn diese Forscher Recht behielten? Könnte der Traum vom ewigen Leben nicht zum Alptraum werden? Die Suche nach den Antworten auf diese Fragen führte Mark Benecke nicht nur zu Sportmedizinern, Ernährungsexperten und Entwicklungsbiologen, sondern auch nach Russland und Amerika, wo er mit Wissenschaftskollegen über deren Experimente sprach, das Leben des Menschen zu verlängern. Schon heute gibt es ein großes Repertoire lebensverlängernder Maßnahmen, das die Vorstellungskraft jedes Romanautors sprengen würde. Benecke stellt es anschaulich vor und dringt dabei immer tiefer zu der Frage vor, welchen Sinn der Tod des Menschen hat und wie eng er mit dem Sinn allen Lebens verbunden ist.D en Tod vor Augen, dem Leben auf der Spur: Der Biomediziner Mark Benecke fragte sich, ob Unsterblichkeit ein erstrebenswertes Ziel der Evolution wäre. Sechs Jahre lang suchte er nach Antworten, sprach mit einem Russen, der sich zusammen mit Algen in einen Metallkessel einsperren ließ, und mit acht Bionauten, die zwei Jahre lang isoliert unter einer Glaskuppel lebten. Er untersuchte die Totenkulte verschiedenster Völker - von der Einbalsamierung im alten Ägypten bis zu den Baumbestattungen in Neuguinea. Die Ergebnisse hat er in dem Buch "Der Traum vom Ewigen Leben" (Kindler Verlag, München) zusammengefasst. Darin beleuchtet er, was die Wissenschaft an Rezepten und vermeintlichen Rezepten für die Lebensverlängerung zu bieten hat. Altbekannte Empfehlungen - von Sport bis Vitaminen - gehören ebenso dazu wie Zukunftsmethoden - von Klonen bis Gehirnverpflanzung

Joints and Connective Tissues - General Practice: The Integrative Approach Series. In order to diagnose and manage the patient presenting with musculoskeletal symptoms, it is important to distinguish whether the pathology is arising primarily in the so-called hard tissues (such as bone) or the soft tissues (such as cartilage, disc, synovium, capsule, muscle, tendon, tendon sheath). It is also important to distinguish between the two most common causes of musculoskeletal symptoms, namely inflammatory and degenerative.
