Abstract

Intensive care staat vooral bekend om het medisch-technisch handelen bij ernstig zieke patiënten. Maar elke arts of verpleegkundige werkzaam op een IC weet dat er bij dit handelen zeer regelmatig ethische en juridische vragen rijzen. Hoe zit het met beroepsgeheim op de IC? Overlijdt een patiënt eerder als je hem mor ne geeft na het staken van behandeling? Moet een schriftelijke wilsverklaring altijd worden opgevolgd? Wat moeten zij aan met marchanderende familieleden? Hoe staken zij op ethisch juiste wijze de behandeling als deze geen doel meer dient? Is orgaandonatie wel zo vanzelfsprekend als men algemeen aanneemt? Vragen die elke arts en verpleegkundige op een IC zal herkennen.In dit boek worden 37 van dit soort alledaagse ethische IC-problemen toegankelijk en dicht bij de praktijk blijvend geanalyseerd. Artsen en verpleegkundigen op de IC kunnen in de analyses een handvat vinden hoe zij in vergelijkbare situaties kunnen handelen.Dit boek vult een lacune in zowel de ethische als de medisch-verpleegkundigeliteratuur. Het brengt de praktijk en theorie van intensive-care-ethiek naadloos bij elkaar. literatuur. Het brengt de praktijk en theorie van intensive-care-ethiek naadloos bij elkaar.

Abstract

Intensive care staat vooral bekend om het medisch-technisch handelen bij ernstig zieke patiënten. Dit hoogtechnologische handelen leidt helaas niet altijd tot genezing van de patiënt. De sterfte op een intensive care is, vergeleken met andere afdelingen in het ziekenhuis, dan ook hoog. Van alle patiënten die op een IC komen te overlijden, sterven in Nederland acht van de tien nadat besloten is dat verder behandelen niet meer in het belang van de patiënt is en de ingezette behandeling gestaakt wordt. Omdat de meeste patiënten bij wie de behandeling gestaakt wordt ernstig orgaanfalen hebben, kan dit aanleiding geven tot belastende symptomen zoals benauwdheid, reutelen, onrust, pijn en andere vormen van discomfort.Artsen en verpleegkundigen hebben de morele taak om deze symptomen zo goed mogelijk te behandelen teneinde de patiënt zo rustig mogelijk te kunnen laten overlijden. Beter is het om te anticiperen op mogelijk belastende symptomen. Helaas zijn veel artsen en verpleegkundigen onwennig in het geven van anticiperende palliatieve zorg op de IC. In dit boekje worden praktische routeplanners gegeven die artsen en verpleegkundigen op de IC stap voor stap kunnen helpen bij de zorg voor stervende patiënten op de IC.

Abstract

Do you have a right NOT to have children? Do we have a right NOT to be born? Choosing to remain 'child-free' or 'childless' is something that sparks various reactions - but not everyone has actually given it deep thought. The names and viewpoints discussed in this book may spur some thinking among those considering becoming parents, feminists, ecologists, the religious right, and the child-free community. The Internet is full of lists of people who are reported as not having had children; some of these lists contain errors. Here, the author has added dates and places of birth and death, to aid

Abstract

The Semantic Web is now a research discipline in its own right and commercial interest in applications of Semantic Web technologies is strong. The advantages of the Semantic Web lie in its ability to present and provide access to complex knowledge in a standardized form making interoperability between distributed databases and middleware achievable. Life Scientists have much to gain from the emergence of the Semantic Web since their work is strongly knowledge-based. Unambiguous, semantically-rich, structured declarations of information have long been a fundamental cornerstone of scientific discourse. To have such information available in machine-readable form makes a whole new generation of scientific software possible. The value that the Semantic Web offers to the Life Sciences is currently under appreciated. A pedagogical oasis is required for interested scientists and bioinformatics professionals, where they can learn about and draw inspiration from the Semantic Web and its component technologies. In this context this book seeks to offer students, researchers, and professionals a glimpse of the technology, its capabilities and the reach of its current implementation in the Life Sciences. This collection of representative topics, written by leading experts, documents important and encouraging first steps showing the utility of the Semantic Web to Life Science research. Semantic Web: Revolutionizing Knowledge Discovery in Life Sciences is divided into six parts that cover the topics of: knowledge integration, knowledge representation, knowledge visualization, utilization of formal knowledge representations, and access to distributed knowledge. The final part considers the viability of the semantic web in life science and the legal challenges that will impact on its establishment. This book may be approached from technical, scientific or application specific perspectives. Component technologies of the Semantic Web (including RDF databases, ontologies, ontological languages, agent systems and web services) are described throughout the book. They are the basic building blocks for creating the Semantic Web infrastructure. Other technologies, such as natural language processing and text mining, which are becoming increasingly important to the Semantic Web, are also discussed. Scientists reading the book will see that the complex needs of biology and medicine are being addressed. Moreover, pioneering Life Scientists have joined forces with Semantic Web developers to build valuable semantic resources for the scientific community. Different areas of computer science (e.g., artificial intelligence, database integration, and visualization) are also being recruited to advance this vision. The ongoing synergy between the Life Sciences and Computer Science is poised to deliver revolutionary discovery tools and new capabilities. As well as providing the background material and critical evaluation criteria for the design and use of meaningful Semantic Web implementations a multitude of examples are provided. These illustrate the diversity of life science tasks that are benefiting from the use of Semantic Web infrastructure and serve to demonstrate the great potential of the Semantic Web in the Life Sciences.

Abstract

PET and SPECT in Psychiatry showcases the combined expertise of renowned authors whose dedication to the investigation of psychiatric disease through nuclear medicine technology has achieved international recognition. The classical psychiatric disorders as well as other subjects – such as suicide, sleep, eating disorders, and autism – are discussed and the latest results in functional neuroimaging are detailed. Most chapters are written jointly by a clinical psychiatrist and a nuclear medicine expert to ensure a multidisciplinary approach. This state of the art compendium will be valuable to all who have an interest in the field of neuroscience, from the psychiatrist and the radiologist/nuclear medicine specialist to the interested general practitioner and cognitive psychologist. It is the first volume of a trilogy on PET and SPECT imaging in the neurosciences; other volumes will focus on PET and SPECT in neurology and PET and SPECT of neurobiological systems.

Abstract

Scientists and others today often collect samples of curves and other functional observations. This monograph presents many ideas and techniques for such data. Included are expressions in the functional domain of such classics as linear regression, principal components analysis, linear modeling, and canonical correlation analysis, as well as specifically functional techniques such as curve registration and principal differential analysis. Data arising in real applications are used throughout for both motivation and illustration, showing how functional approaches allow us to see new things, especially by exploiting the smoothness of the processes generating the data. The data sets exemplify the wide scope of functional data analysis; they are drawn from growth analysis, meteorology, biomechanics, equine science, economics, and medicine. The book presents novel statistical technology, much of it based on the authors’ own research work, while keeping the mathematical level widely accessible. It is designed to appeal to students, to applied data analysts, and to experienced researchers; it will have value both within statistics and across a broad spectrum of other fields. This second edition is aimed at a wider range of readers, and especially those who would like to apply these techniques to their research problems. It complements the authors' other recent volume Applied Functional Data Analysis: Methods and Case Studies. In particular, there is an extended coverage of data smoothing and other matters arising in the preliminaries to a functional data analysis. The chapters on the functional linear model and modeling of the dynamics of systems through the use of differential equations and principal differential analysis have been completely rewritten and extended to include new developments. Other chapters have been revised substantially, often to give more weight to examples and practical considerations. Jim Ramsay is Professor of Psychology at McGill University and is an international authority on many aspects of multivariate analysis. He was President of the Statistical Society of Canada in 2002-3 and holds the Society’s Gold Medal for his work in functional data analysis. Bernard Silverman is Master of St Peter’s College and Professor of Statistics at Oxford University. He was President of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics in 2000–1. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society. His main specialty is in computational statistics, and he is the author or editor of several highly regarded books in this area. .
