"It can help reverse the effects of strokes and head injuries. It can help heal damaged tissues. It can fight infections and diseases. It can save limbs. The treatment is here, now, and is being successfully used to benefit thousands of patients throughout the country. This treatment is hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)." "Safe and painless, HBOT uses pressurized oxygen administered in special chambers. It has been used for years to treat divers with the bends, a serious illness caused by overly rapid ascensions. As time has gone on, however, doctors have discovered other applications for this remarkable treatment. In Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Dr. Richard Neubauer and Dr. Morton Walker explain how this treatment overcomes hypoxia, or oxygen starvation in the tissues, by flooding the body's fluids with life-giving oxygen. In this way, HBOT can help people with strokes, head and spinal cord inquiries, and multiple sclerosis regain speech and mobility. When used to treat accident and fire victims. HBOT can promote the faster, cleaner healing of wounds and burns, and can aid those overcome with smoke inhalation. It can be used to treat other types of injuries, including damage caused by radiation treatment and skin surgery, and fractures that won't heal. HBOT can also help people overcome a variety of serious infections, ranging from AIDS to Lyme disease. And, as Dr. Neubauer and Dr. Walker point out, it can do all of this by working hand in hand with other treatments, including surgery, without creating additional side effects and complications."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Personalized medicine, which simply means selection of treatment best suited for an individual, involves integration and translation of several new technologies in clinical care of patients. The scope is much broader than indicated by the term genomic medicine because many non-genomic factors are taken into consideration in developing personalized medicine. Basic technologies for personalized medicine, of which molecular diagnostics has the biggest share, are mentioned briefly and appropriate references are given for further information. Commercial aspects are discussed briefly in a chapter and detailed analysis of markets and companies involved in personalized medicine is presented in a special report on this topic. There is increasing interest in personalized medicine. Considerable advances have taken place in molecular biology and biotechnology to make personalized medicine a viable option, but some misconceptions still exist, both in the academic and commercial sectors. There is lack of a suitable source of information that provides both the fundamentals as well as applications of personalized medicine. As the latest version of the first monograph on personalized medicine published in 1998, this volume, Textbook of Personalized Medicine, summarizes the author’s efforts during the past decade, as well as reviews selected studies done during this period in a readable format for the physicians and scientists. It is hoped that physicians, pharmacists, scientists and interested lay readers with basic scientific knowledge will find this book useful.

Hyperbaric medicine involves the use of barometric pressure great er than that at sea level for the treatment of diseases. The term makes no distinction between air, oxygen or any other gas used as a medium of compression. Hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) refers to the use of pure oxygen for breathing in a hyperbaric chamber via a mask or similar device or breathing freely in a monoplace chamber pressurized with oxygen. HBO is an intermittent, high dose oxygen inhalation therapy. We have confined ourselves to the subject of HBO therapy and have not included oxygen therapy at normobaric pressures. With the exception of decompression sick ness we have made no attempt to cover diving medicine as many excellent treatises are available on this SUbject. Literature on HBO is extensive, and we estimate that the total number of publication on the subject of hyperbaric medicine dur ing the past 150 years exceeds 20000, nearly half published during the past 30 years. No comprehensive textbook on this topic has ever been written in English, nor is there any bibliography more up to date than 1965. The books on the subject have consisted of monographs, reports of symposia and proceedings of the various international congresses on hyperbaric medicine. No definitive work has been published in the past 10 years.

The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) is an international, non-profit organization serving over 2,400 members from more than 50 countries. The UHMS is the primary source of scientific information for diving and hyperbaric medicine physiology worldwide, the breadth of which is illustrated in the triennial report, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Indications. With leading experts authoring chapters in their respective fields, this publication continues to provide the most current and up to date guidance and support for scientists and practitioners of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Indications, currently in its thirteenth edition, has grown in size and depth to reflect the evolution of the literature on the approved use of hyperbarics from both a clinical practice standpoint and insurance coverage perspective. To date, the committee recognizes fourteen indications, including the new indication, idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss. Additionally, this book continues to be used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and other third party insurance carriers in determining payment for HBO2 services.
