  • The Active Points Test - A Clinical Test for Identifying and Selecting Effective Points for Acupuncture and Related Therapies - cover

    The Active Points Test - A...

    The Active Points Test is a clinical instrument for identifying and selecting the points on the skin that are most effective for treatment. These points may be close to the seat of the disease, for example on the shoulder for periarthritis, or far away, for example on the ear or head for stomach pain or a cough. 
    
    Drawing on principles from TCM and Western medicine, Dr Stefano Marcelli sets out the theory of the approach and offers detailed guidance on how to carry out the test and how to interpret the results, as well as explaining how the test can be used in different therapies. The test is based on the discovery that a patient experiencing an ongoing symptom can be made aware of the capacity of a few points on the skin to treat his or her discomfort. The test involves stimulating the skin to the appropriate degree whilst asking the patient to identify whether there is any change in the symptom he or she is suffering, and can be used to treat a wide range of symptoms, from articular pain to migraine, tachycardia, asthenia and depression. Published for the first time in 1995, this substantially updated edition contains the most recent supporting evidence and many new explanatory diagrams and photographs. 
    
    Providing a comprehensive and effective system for point selection, this is essential reading for practitioners and students of acupuncture and related reflex and manual therapies, including massage, tuina, Shiatsu and Rolfing.

    Acute Medicine second edition

    Acute Medicine 2e is a current and concise guide to hospital emergency medicine for registrars, junior doctors and medical students working on the wards. This new edition has been comprehensively revised and updated to incorporate the latest treatment guidelines. It has been substantially rewritten and streamlined to enable the reader to access the pertinent information even more quickly. 
     
    
    
     
    It is not just a list of instructions, but contains pathophysiology and useful clinical pearls:
     
    •	detailed management of acute medical and surgical emergencies, including in pregnancy
     
    •	general ward management issues
     
    •	descriptions of key procedures
     
    •	normal laboratory values
     
    •	emergency drug formulary
     
    
    
     
    Acute Medicine 2e is available in two formats (the content is exactly the same in both):
     
    - A pocket-sized black and white paperback  (ISBN 9781907904912)
     
    - A spiral bound, larger format, full colour version (ISBN 9781911510086)
     
    
    
     
    
    
     
    From reviews of the first edition:
     
    "This new book by Dr O’Kane is a very useful and interesting book directed towards Medical registrars but also with many positive features for anyone from Medical Student to Consultants... [It] works through groups of emergencies according to speciality and organ grouping. This is helpful as it enables the reader to link the different differentials together well.  It also tries to signpost all the different conditions in relation to the Acute Medicine and General Internal Medicine curriculums.
     
    There is also an excellent section on fluid prescription, outlining what each fluid option contains along with potential fluid prescriptions in relation to the daily needs of the human body. Each clinical problem is presented in a clear and logical format, beginning with the things to ask or think about when receiving a referral - much as junior doctors would do in a real clinical situation. 
     
    The book also includes an excellent 'general management’ section, which covers important aspects of the assessment of mental capacity and considerations to make when discharging a patient - things which are often poorly taught in other settings. All of the clinical procedures are described in some level of detail - not enough to learn to do the procedure but enough to signpost as well as getting the reader to think about why it is needed and any associated risks." - Journal for Acute Medicine, October 2015
     
    "O'Kane's Acute Medicine 2015 is a fantastic text for any doctor regardless of their grade. However, it is of particular use to the junior hospital doctor. The book covers a huge array of pathology and knowledge in a succinct and accessible way with easy to use chapters with superb explanations throughout. I am currently working in A+E and have found this book invaluable. In particular the chapters covering procedures and the excellent formulary have helped me on several occasions. All of this is accentuated by the size of the book, which is genuinely pocket sized. This book is an essential text for all junior doctors." - A junior hospital doctor
