By Linda J. Heffner

The Reproductive procedure at a Glance is a entire advisor to general reproductive biology and linked pathophysiology in either sexes. Concise, effortless to learn, and obviously dependent, the double-page spreads growth from easy technological know-how to medical abnormalities, and covers endocrine construction and motion, inside one brief volume. Chapters on problems summarise epidemiology, pathophysiology, prognosis and treatment.

This new version of The Reproductive procedure at a Glance:
• Is totally revised and up to date all through to mirror fresh advancements in practice
• Now beneficial properties histological and pathological slides to counterpoint the “at a look” sort explanatory illustrations
• Now beneficial properties radiologic reports to complement the textual content in chosen chapters
• Contains extra special assurance of maternal variations to pregnancy
• features a significant other site at www.ataglanceseries.com/reproduction that includes self-assessment a number of selection questions, bonus unmarried solution questions and flashcards

The Reproductive approach at a Glance is a perfect consultant for college kids learning either endocrine and reproductive matters, and teaches the root recommendations for the obstetrics and gynaecology rotation, aiding healthiness pros and scholars in attaining a vast and functional figuring out of the subject.

The Nuts and bolts of Paced ECG Interpretation (Nuts and Bolts Series)

Not anything is extra complicated to the clinician new to equipment treatment than having to house cardiac electrocardiograms from a tool sufferer. Pacemakers and different implantable cardiac rhythm administration units depart their “imprint” on ECGs and will considerably switch what clinicians see - or anticipate to work out.

Computational Fluid and Particle Dynamics in the Human Respiratory System

Conventional study methodologies within the human respiration procedure have consistently been demanding as a result of their invasive nature. fresh advances in scientific imaging and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) have speeded up this examine. This e-book compiles and information fresh advances within the modelling of the breathing approach for researchers, engineers, scientists, and healthiness practitioners.

Secondary stage involution is a more extended process that returns the penis to its normal unstimulated size. The penis is only relatively refractory to stimulation during this stage. The penis progressively regains responsiveness. The excitement or plateau phase of the sexual cycle may be voluntarily extended by the male in an effort to delay ejaculation until his sexual partner is satisfied. This may be accompanied by a prolongation of the primary stage of detumescence after ejaculation. Female sexual response During the excitement phase of the sexual response cycle, somatogenic and psychogenic stimuli arouse the female through neural pathways similar to those described for the male.

The sex steroids (perhaps via estrogen activity) are responsible for epiphyseal closure, which occurs at a median age of 21 in young men. The determinants of final adult height are many and include genetic predisposition, body mass index at the onset of puberty, nutrition and length of puberty. Genetic determinants of bone growth appear to be carried on the distal short arm of the X chromosome. This locus does not appear to undergo X inactivation. Therefore, this locus, and any homologous loci on the Y chromosome, will direct final adult height.

Humans differ from most animals, whose mating is seasonal and determined by hormonal cycles, in being sexually receptive regardless of fertility potential. Human sexuality is defined not only by procreation, but also by recreation and pleasure. The nonreproductive aspect of human sexuality is quite plastic and subject to individual and cultural influences. What is pleasurable to one individual may not be so to another. Normative behavior in one culture may be unacceptable in another. What does seem to be common to all human sexual responses is that both physiologic and psychologic satisfaction are central and motivating.
