The text has been completely updated with a major rewrite of the material, particularly that on electrical stimulation. This book continues to focus on evidence: clinical and biophysical evidence that affects how and which electrotherapies may be of use clinically and when.
The focus remains on humans but the relevance of the principles for using and applying different modalities is explained clearly, providing guidelines for clinicians across disciplines and specialties. Organized by body system, each chapter discusses pertinent diseases, from clinical signs, diagnostic testing, and prevalence to treatment options and nursing considerations. Published in association with the Academy of Internal Medicine for Veterinary Technicians, this book offers both a thorough grounding in the foundations of internal medicine for students and new veterinary technicians and detailed, advanced information suitable for experienced veterinary technicians.
Coverage includes an overview of neurological disorders and discussion of the surgical, emergency, and nursing considerations for each condition.
This complete reference, which includes a companion website with quizzes, images, and video clips, is essential reading for veterinary technician students, practicing technicians, and those studying for the AIMVT specialty exam.
It features: current, complete coverage of need-to-know topics, including infections in organ systems, bacterial infections, viral infections, prion diseases, fungal infections, and protozoal infections; Addresses underlying epidemiologic, pathophysiologic, and genetic factors; important material on HIV infections and AIDS by Anthony S.
Fauci and H. Clifford Lane; two image-based chapters comprise atlases valuable to clinical assessment: rashes associated with fever and blood smears of the various stages of the parasites causing malaria and babesiosis; integration of pathophysiology with clinical management. The strategies used to produce these are increasingly based on our knowledge of relevant science, particularly genetics, but involves a multidisciplinary understanding that optimizes the approaches taken. Topics such as biotechnology in plant breeding, intellectual property, risks, emerging concepts decentralized breeding, organic breeding , and more are addressed in the new, updated edition of this text.
Industry highlight boxes are included throughout the text to contextualize the information given through the professional experiences of plant breeders. The final chapters provide a useful reference on breeding the largest and most common crops. Sign Up Wishlist Login Checkout. Electrotherapy Explained: Principles and Practice 4th Edition.

Electrotherapy Explained is an excellent research-based exploration of the major types of electrophysical agents used in clinical practice, particularly human and also animal. For the fourth edition, two new authors join the writing team, presenting the latest information for today's clinicians. The text has been completely updated with a major rewrite of the material, particularly that on electrical stimulation. This book continues to focus on evidence: clinical and biophysical evidence that affects how and which electrotherapies may be of use clinically and when.
This is the fourth edition of this text, which was first published in Although the types of physical agents that are used in the clinic today are essentially unchanged, the technology used to deliver physical agents, the way this technology is used, and the knowledge necessary for their use has changed significantly over the years. This fourth edition is designed for current and beginning practitioners, as well as physical therapists, dentists, veterinary surgeons, podiatrists, and a wide array of other health care professionals. The book not only explains how EPAs work and their clinical application, but also provides information that can be used in making the best possible evidence-based decisions in practice. To this end, EPAs are evaluated relative to the biophysical principles used and the available clinical evidence for their effectiveness.
