This volume compiles the perspectives of a multi-author team examining the entire spectrum of burn reconstruction and long-term treatment. Individual chapters cover basic aspects of wound healing and scarring, and those of plastic surgery relating to tissue rearrangement and the use of flaps, as well as the long-term use of skin and skin substitutes. Furthermore, topics such as rehabilitation and scar management are addressed in detail. This part provides detailed reconstruction guidelines divided by anatomic region (e.g. face, hands,...), as well as aspects of future trends and prospects in burn reconstruction, among which are e.g. allotransplantation and bionics.
Based on evolving knowledge and modern treatment options the final outcome of burn patients has improved far beyond survival alone. This new comprehensive work consists of two volumes that cover all aspects of modern burn care: It ranges from the complex management of burned patients in the acute phase (volume 1) to burn reconstruction and long term rehabilitation (volume 2). Compiled and edited by the world ́s leading authorities, this work is designed to be an essential reference source for burn surgeons, reconstructive surgeons, anesthesiologists, critical care physicians, burn nurses and all other health care professionals involved in modern burn care and burn care research.
The second edition of this volume provides updated information on acute burn treatment. It also discusses genomic responses to burns and novel techniques in this area. Divided into four topical parts, this book provides insights into the history, epidemiology, prevention of burns, as well as initial and pre-hospital management of burns, acute burn care and therapy, and non-thermal burns. All chapters have been edited by leading world authorities on burn care and offer readers a broad overview of the techniques and outcomes in this area. Please also have a look at "Handbook of Burns Volume 2 - Reconstruction and Rehabilitation 2nd edition".
An indispensable survey of new developments and results in experimental economics When The Handbook of Experimental Economics first came out in 1995, the notion of economists conducting lab experiments to generate data was relatively new. Since then, the field has exploded. This second volume of the Handbook covers some of the most exciting new growth areas in experimental economics, presents the latest results and experimental methods, and identifies promising new directions for future research. Featuring contributions by leading practitioners, the Handbook describes experiments in macroeconomics, charitable giving, neuroeconomics, other-regarding preferences, market design, political economy, subject population effects, gender effects, auctions, and learning and the economics of small decisions. Contributors focus on key developments and report on experiments, highlighting the dialogue between experimenters and theorists. While most of the experiments consist of laboratory studies, the book also includes several chapters that report extensively on field experiments related to the subject area studied.

This practical guide offers a comprehensive summary of the most important and most immediate therapeutic approaches in the assessment and treatment of burn injuries. Taking into account age-specific needs in pediatric, adult, and elderly burn patients, the book discusses key issues such as pre-hospital treatment, wound care and infection control, burn nursing, and critical care. In addition, burn reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation for burn victims are described. Written in a concise manner, Burn Care and Treatment provides guidelines for the optimal care in order to improve patient outcome, and thus will be a valuable reference for physicians, surgeons, residents, nurses, and other burn care providers.
These texts contain 29 articles that cover a broad range of topics in differential, algebraic and symplectic geometry, and also in mathematical physics. These volumes will be of interest to researchers and graduate students in geometry and mathematical physics
The New Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature Volume 2 1660 1800
More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 2 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
Continues the outstanding coverage of information in the field originally brought together by Temple C. Patton. Representing the expertise of international authorities in the pigment industry, it provides ready access to such topics as the physical and chemical meaning of color, the worldwide market for pigments, the properties and physical relationships of diverse pigments, and the major reasons for using certain types of pigments for particular products. In addition to the updated data in this 3 volume set, are new material on novel organic and inorganic pigments that were not even at the research stage when the 1973 version was published. Most chapters include a new and unique section concerning the effect of the pigment under discussion on human health and on the environment. In light of recent legislative standards, these dicussions have special significance.
