  • Diabetes is a common and debilitating condition
    encountered by all doctors worldwide, regardless
    of specialist interest. This book aims to give
    the reader an understanding of the background,
    diagnosis, investigation and management of
    diabetes and endocrine disease. This book is set
    out in three main sections. The first gives a
    background understanding of diabetes and a review
    of glandular systems. The second outlines the
    disease problems and their investigation,
    including the specific complications of diabetes.
    The third covers the management and treatment of
    diabetes and endocrine disease, importantly
    including prevention and screening. This is the
    third book in a new series which combines a
    symptoms and problem-based approach. It will
    appeal to medical students and instructors, to
    junior doctors and to health care professionals
    dealing with diabetes and endocrine diseases.

    associated with considerable morbidity. Patients
    may present to primary care services or hospital
    emergency departments and dermatology clinics.
    This book aims to serve as a comprehensive

    investigations. Treatment is divided into two
    sections, the first stating the immediate action
    required to prevent further deterioration and the
    second discussing long-term management
    considerations. Each condition described and
    discussed is illustrated by clinical pictures.
    For primary care physicians, nurse specialists,
    emergency department staff, dermatologists and
    general physicians.
  • Focus on dermatoses with sudden onset, rapid
    progression or with local or systemic morbidity.

Horse SensesSusan McBane, UK.
May 2011
  • Horses perceive the world differently from humans
    because their senses developed differently
    through evolution to cope with different ways of
    living and surviving. Horses are essentially
    prey/flight animals. The horses senses therefore
    determine how the world appears to him and how he
    reacts to it. As the horses perception and
    understanding are very different to ours
    sometimes their reaction to events and their
    surroundings seem strange to us. In this book the
    author compares the horses sensory organs with
    those of humans.
  • The five senses are covered each section
    explains how the horse's sense works and then
    this is related to care, behaviour and riding,
    explaining why some practices are appropriate and
    why some are not. The behavioural aspect of
    dealing with horses is emphasised throughout.
    Useful for all horse owners, horse breeders and
    trainers who wish to gain a better understanding
    of how the horses senses function, and for
    veterinary students and practitioners.
  • The author explains how the five senses define
    the horses perception of the world and how they
    are very different from our own.
  • The senses are related to care of the horse,
    behaviour and riding
