Marijuana As Medicine Excerpt :

Some people suffer from chronic, debilitating disorders for which no conventional treatment brings relief. Can marijuana ease their symptoms? Would it be breaking the law to turn to marijuana as a medication? There are few sources of objective, scientifically sound advice for people in this situation. Most books about marijuana and medicine attempt to promote the views of advocates or opponents. To fill the gap between these extremes, authors Alison Mack and Janet Joy have extracted critical findings from a recent Institute of Medicine study on this important issue, interpreting them for a general audience. Marijuana As Medicine? provides patientsâ€"as well as the people who care for themâ€"with a foundation for making decisions about their own health care. This empowering volume examines several key points, including: Whether marijuana can relieve a variety of symptoms, including pain, muscle spasticity, nausea, and appetite loss. The dangers of smoking marijuana, as well as the effects of its active chemical components on the immune system and on psychological health. The potential use of marijuana-based medications on symptoms of AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and several other specific disorders, in comparison with existing treatments. Marijuana As Medicine? introduces readers to the active compounds in marijuana. These include the principal ingredient in Marinol, a legal medication. The authors also discuss the prospects for developing other drugs derived from marijuana's active ingredients. In addition to providing an up-to-date review of the science behind the medical marijuana debate, Mack and Joy also answer common questions about the legal status of marijuana, explaining the conflict between state and federal law regarding its medical use. Intended primarily as an aid to patients and caregivers, this book objectively presents critical information so that it can be used to make responsible health care decisions. Marijuana As Medicine? will also be

Glaucoma Causes Symptoms and Treatment Excerpt :

Glaucoma is a set of eye diseases that cause damage to the optic nerve and leads to a loss of vision. It is characterized by high intraocular pressure (IOP). Some types of glaucoma are open-angle glaucoma, normal-tension glaucoma and closed-angle glaucoma. It is caused by a variety of factors such as diet, genetics, ethnicity, etc. If untreated, it can result in blindness, which cannot be reversed. Its symptoms include blurred vision, redness of the eye, mid-dilated pupil, severe eye pain and nausea. The screening for glaucoma is performed by a standard eye examination or by techniques like tonometry, gonioscopy, scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, optical coherence tomography, etc. The mainstay of glaucoma treatment is lowering IOP through various pharmaceutical and surgical interventions. The objective of this book is to give a general view of the different causes, symptoms and treatment methodologies of glaucoma. From theories to research to practical applications, case studies related to all contemporary topics of relevance to this field have been included in this book. It will serve as a valuable source of reference for graduate and postgraduate students.

Glaucoma Surgery Excerpt :

The first edition of this volume, published in 2012, has become an indispensable reference for clinicians, a fact that inspired the making of this 2nd edition. The book starts with a discussion of current achievements and limitations of the medical therapy of glaucoma. The focus is then placed on conventional glaucoma procedures such as trabeculectomy, deep sclerectomy, and glaucoma drainage device surgery. A chapter is dedicated to the postoperative management of filtering procedures. Further chapters review the role of the ocular surface and the issue of modulation of the scarring processes in glaucoma surgery. The second section covers some promising new devices and techniques. The final part addresses the surgical approaches to some specific clinical challenges: angle-closure glaucoma, concomitant cataract and glaucoma, pediatric glaucoma, and refractory glaucomas. This volume provides residents and general ophthalmologists with valuable new insights into the fascinating and sometimes complex aspects of glaucoma surgery. It will also assist glaucoma specialists when they review and validate therapeutic approaches with their patients.
