The Wardens : Managing a Late Medieval Hospital (9781845495992)



This exceptional account book includes some journal entries of successive wardens of Browne's Hospital, Stamford,1495-1518, revealing their frustrations as they sought to manage far-flung rural estates in Lincolnshire, Rutland and Northants, as well as in the town of Stamford. They faced declining income which led them to leave some places in the Hospital empty (the entries and departures of the bedesmen and women are recorded, thus providing an almost complete register of the Hospital inmates). Much of the wardens' time and most of the income was spent on 'reparacions' to the scattered properties. The wardens were running a large builders' yard from the Hospital site; materials were purchased in bulk, and tradesmen from the town and surrounding villages were hired. The tenants were involved in a number of disputes, so that the wardens spent much time countering distraints, meeting lawyers, attending courts and taking out writs. Above all, they were in dispute with the gild of All Saints in Stamford over the gild's use of the Hospital as its gildhall, a suit which incurred extended visits to London recorded in detail. The stress on the wardens is clear: two died in office and two resigned after only a few years. The care of the inmates must have been left to the confrater. The text, written mostly in English with dialect words and idiosyncratic spellings, is a good example of midlands English usage of this date. A substantial Introduction is followed by the text of the account book, and appendices of associated documents from The National Archives and the Hospital archives, summaries of accounts, and a glossary (especially of building terms). There is a full index. Published by the Stamford Survey Group (Stamford and District Local History Society) in association with abramis academic publishers, with generous assistance from the Lincoln Record Society.

What Is Useful in Vestibular Testing? : A Controversial Issue. Special Topic Issue: Oto-Rhino-Laryngologia Nova 2001, Vol. 11, No. 2 (9783805573863)



The possible causes of vertigo and dizziness are multiple, the symptoms are nonspecific, and some typical features of a particular syndrome may be absent for a long period of time. In addition, the case history may be confusing as it often includes somatic as well as psychological elements. Moreover, all generally used diagnostic tests are severely limited. Facing these difficulties the clinician has two options. The first is to systematically perform an extensive otoneurological workup including audiological, vestibular and radiological tests. In this case, he risks to perform unnecessary examinations, or to have difficulties in interpreting inconsistent results which reflect the limitations of the diagnostic tests. On the other hand, the clinician may choose to limit the investigation to the minimum, risking to miss information indispensable to the diagnosis. In this controversial issue, the experts reviewing the existing tests from the most simple to the most sophisticated consider that the case history, a careful physical examination and some simple tests remain essential elements of the diagnosis, on condition that the limitations of these tests are taken into consideration. Otolaryngologists, general practitioners, neurologists, pediatricians and any physician involved in the diagnosis and management of patients suffering from vertigo and dizziness will find this publication helpful to choose the most efficient approach.

Impedimetric Biosensors for Medical Applications Current Progress and Challenges (9780791860243)



Up to 40 volumes are planned for this concise monograph series, which focuses on the implementation of various engineering principles in the conception, design, development, analysis and operation of biomedical, biotechnological and nanotechnology systems and applications.

In this monograph, the authors discuss the current progress in the medical application of impedimetric biosensors, along with the key challenges in the field. First, a general overview of biosensor development, structure and function is presented, followed by a detailed discussion of impedimetric biosensors and the principles of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. Next, the current state-of-the art in terms of the science and technology underpinning impedance-based biosensors is reviewed in detail. The layer-by-layer construction of impedimetric sensors is described, including the design of electrodes, their nano-modification, transducer surface functionalisation and the attachment of different bioreceptors.

The current challenges of translating lab-based biosensor platforms into commercially-available devices that function with real patient samples at the POC are presented; this includes a consideration of systems integration, microfluidics and biosensor regeneration.
The final section of this monograph describes case studies of successful impedance-based biosensors for the detection of a range of analytes from small molecules up to whole microorganisms. Finally, the authors put forward future perspectives for the clinical applications of impedimetric biosensors.

Biomaterials in Clinical Practice : Advances in Clinical Research and Medical Devices (9783319680248)



This book covers the properties of biomaterials that have found wide clinical applications, while also reviewing the state-of-the-art in the development towards future medical applications, starting with a brief introduction to the history of biomaterials used in hip arthroplasty.
The book then reviews general types of biomaterials - polymers, ceramics, and metals, as well as different material structures such as porous materials and coatings and their applications - before exploring various current research trends, such as biodegradable and porous metals, shape memory alloys, bioactive biomaterials and coatings, and nanometals used in the diagnosis and therapy of cancer.
In turn, the book discusses a range of methods and approaches used in connection with biomaterial properties and characterization - chemical properties, biocompatibility, in vivo behaviour characterisation, as well as genotoxicity and mutagenicity - and reviews various diagnostic techniques: histopathological analysis, imagining techniques, and methods for physicochemical and spectroscopic characterization. Properties of stent deployment procedures in cardiovascular surgeries, from aspects of prediction, development and deployment of stent geometries are presented on the basis of novel modelling approaches.
The last part of the book presents the clinical applications of biomaterials, together with case studies in dentistry, knee and hip prosthesis. Reflecting the efforts of a multidisciplinary team of authors, gathering chemical engineers, medical doctors, physicists and engineers, it presents a rich blend of perspectives on the application of biomaterials in clinical practice. The book will provide clinicians with an essential review of currently available solutions in specific medical areas, also incorporating non-medical solutions and standpoints, thus offering them a broader selection of materials and implantable solutions. This work is the result of joint efforts of various academic and research institutions participating in WIMB Tempus project, 543898-TEMPUS-1-2013-1-ES-TEMPUS-JPHES, "Development of Sustainable Interrelations between Education, Research and Innovation at WBC Universities in Nanotechnologies and Advanced Materials where Innovation Means Business", co-funded by the Tempus Programme of the European Union.

Niemals alt! : So lässt sich das Altern umkehren. Fortschritte der Verjüngungsforschung (3837613364)



Fast alle Alternsforscher stimmen überein, dass sich die Alterung eines Tages verlangsamen lassen wird. Aubrey de Grey fasst die neuesten Erkenntnisse zusammen und zeigt, dass jene Biotechnologien, die den körperlichen Verfall nicht nur hinauszögern, sondern periodisch rückgängig machen, bereits in Reichweite sind.
Alterung resultiert aus einer Anhäufung von Schadensformen, die wir kennen. Wir bewegen uns rasant auf die Entwicklung von Therapien zu, die diese Schäden beheben können. Durch seine Entmystifizierung des Alterungsprozesses demontiert de Grey systematisch die fatalistische Annahme, dass Alterung auf immer ein unabänderliches Schicksal bleibt.
