A Practical Guide to Heart Failure in Older People


Title : A Practical Guide to Heart Failure in Older People

ISBN: 9780470742938

Heart failure is effectively a disease of older people. Eighty percent of patients are over 65 years old, and the majority of these are over 75. This figure is likely to increase significantly in the next two decades. The prognosis is worse than that of most cancers and heart failure is the commonest reason for hospital admission in the over 65s. The problems associated with treating heart failure in older patients are more diverse and complex than in those who are younger. The diagnosis in older patients is easily overlooked and as they were excluded from most heart failure treatment trials there has been a reluctance to treat them optimally (fewer than 20% are prescribed conventional medicines). They have multiple co-morbidities which are poorly managed, they are repeatedly hospitalised, and suffer social isolation. These important age-related treatment and management problems have been largely ignored and this book aims to redress the balance. It provides a concise, comprehensive account of the epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment, management and end-of-life care of elderly patients with heart failure, based on published studies. A Practical Guide to Heart Failure in Older People is essential reading for geriatricians, cardiologists, general hospital physicians, family practitioners and specialist nurses. • Specifically addresses the particular needs of the elderly, a largely ignored group who constitute the majority of patients with heart failure • Presents a concise yet comprehensive account of the evidence relating to the diagnosis, treatment and management of heart failure in this population • Improves awareness of the various roles within the management team

ISBN: 1849051283

"Being active is fundamental to a person's sense of physical and mental wellbeing, and the need to engage in purposeful and meaningful activity does not diminish with age. However, common effects of ageing, such as reduced vision and hearing, arthritis, dementia, and in some cases social isolation, can affect an older person's ability to participate in therapeutic and recreational activities. Introducing the concept of PIE (Planning, Implementation and Evaluation), this practical resource will enable professionals working with older people to initiate and run successful activity-based programmes with their clients, either individually or in groups. The authors guide the reader through the processes of group and individual work, and provide step-by-step instructions for a range of activities, including arts and crafts, music, drama, movement, relaxation, reminiscence, and day-to-day tasks such as taking care of personal hygiene and preparing food and drinks. The book also describes the importance of assessing and evaluating activity-based work, with examples of completed evaluation and assessment forms. Useful case studies and self-reflective activities for the facilitator are included throughout. This book will be an invaluable for occupational therapists, creative arts therapists, health and social care practitioners and all other professionals working with older people."--Publisher's website.

ISBN: 1351796461

The Making of Shareholder Welfare Society traces and accounts for the debates and discussions between law and economics scholars and mainstream legal scholars, management theorists, and economic sociologists. This is done in detail to demonstrate that the shareholder welfare society was built from the bottom up, beginning with theoretical propositions regarding alleged market efficiencies and leading all the way to the idea that a society characterized by economic freedom and efficiency maximization pave the way for uncompromised shareholder welfare, in turn being good for everyone. This book is of relevance for a variety of readers, including graduate students, management scholars, policy-makers, and management consultants, as well as those that are concerned about how the economic system of competitive capitalism is now in a position where it is riddled by doubts and concern, not the least as the levels of economic inequality is soaring. It addresses the topics with regard to corporate governance, accounting and society and will be of interest to researchers, academics, students, and members of the general public that are concerned about the economic system of competitive capitalism.

Belief is the answer. The territory of Lan Lumen fell almost five thousand years ago to the forces of the Dark One’s Lieutenant, the Dark Seneschal. A being from another realm of existence Using his Flawed, his Dark Flow, and his Bone Strippers he exterminated the Halfling race, trapped the Holys and then exterminated the Human race. Permanently unbalancing the Earth Mother and this Realm of existence. Using the conquered six Prime Races of the Dark from already conquered Lan Atriam against the remaining four Prime Races of the Light he systematically attacked and destroyed or occupied each of their Ancestral Homes crumbling their power and weakening the Earth Mother even more. The Faerie Grove was destroyed , it’s Archnoid sunk into the swamp. Crushing the Faerie and scattering them across the South Lands to fend for themselves. The Halfling City of Dulamar became the Dark Seneschal’s capital and the Halfling Archnode was encased in stone. The City of the Gnomes ,Wiseholm Rectory was occupied and enslaved. But the Archnode was hidden and remains undiscovered to this day. The Elven Ancestral fortress of Mia Tera fought bravely but with out her allies she eventually fell. The Elven Royals were able to escape and fled to the Secluded Vale in the Barrier Mountains where they remain hidden. But Mia Tera was Occupied by the Dark Ones and her Archnode covered from the Earth Mothers Eyes. Domitable the Great Dwarven Fortress fought on for five seasons they resisted till they were betrayed from within and the fortress fell. It too is now occupied and it’s Archnode hidden from the light. Of all the Ancestral Homes of the Prime Races of the Light only Atalan the Ancestral Home of the Humans remains untouched. Though not for lack of trying. Atalan is protected by Hawser and the other five Ore Guardians. when the Dark Seneschal attacked. Hawser alone defeated them in short order. The Seneschal sent his Flawed his Dark Flow and even his elite Bone Strippers, all creatures not of this realm, and Hawser defeated them. Finally the Dark Seneschal decided since there were no more Humans and the Ore Guardians had to stay near Atalan. There was no threat here and he withdrew. The Humans were gone from the realm so the Atalan Archnode dimmed and ceased to function as well. Even the Human’s allies the Wolves and the Gryphons pulled back from any conflict to their strong places. The Wolves staying to their traditional hunting grounds and the Gryphons to their plateau aerie fading completely from the memory of many. The attack was efficient and succeeded. Lan Lumen became the Dark Seneschal’s to do with as he pleased. But he had made one error. When he destroyed the Halflings and before the final battle with the Humans he cast a spell to trap the Holys the spiritual guide for each of the twelve Prime Races. He however mistakenly believed that because the Halflings were extinct their Holy was dead as well. His casting trapped eleven of the Holys, but there were still twelve. Since each Holy was trapped where he or she was at the time of the casting The Earth Mother, her powers dwindling, was only able to hide their location from the Dark Seneschal. He knows the are trapped but not where to find them. But he searches. For five thousand years he searches. Because he knows the killing of a Holy is an imbalance the Earth Mother can never repair. When a Holy dies she is gone forever. An Elven princess of both warrior and spiritual cast, a Faerie Swords Master and three Tarc, disgraced ones who accompany them hoping to reach achieved status and gain the honored rank of Arc, and the last Holy. These six form a team. Their task is to find and then expedite the repopulation of Lan Lumen with Humans. A realm where some animals are as intelligent as the Prime Races. Where oceans are bodies of water and seas are living things. Where creatures of legend and prehistory live. The realm of the ancient scholar Dar
