Book Summary: The U.S. healthcare system is in crisis. As Americans, we're facing serious problems - not only with skyrocketing healthcare costs, but also lack of patient access and inefficient delivery. Despite all the political debates and media coverage on healthcare policy and reform, there is always one glaring omission: Feedback from the people in the trenches - the doctors and other healthcare professionals who actually provide care to the patients. This book is written from a doctor's perspective, by Alejandro Badia, M.D., F.A.C.S., who didn't want to write this book, but felt he had to because of the incredible problems he sees every day in getting the patient the care they need. As an expert, his treatment plans are constantly second-guessed and obstructed by the system which has a near zero understanding of the problem that the patient faces. It became unbearable for Dr. Badia to continue to practice without calling out what is happening every day, as the norm, and is not the exception anymore.Medicine, once a noble calling, as evidenced by The Hippocratic Oath (Do No Harm), has transformed into an oppressive burdensome system for both doctors and patients. Non-Medical Experts hired by the Insurance Companies with zero medical training, and without any degrees or knowledge (in most cases) are calling the shots and continue to interfere with the doctor-patient relationship, delay and prevent the delivery of care, and present an obstacle to innovations that would improve patient outcomes and reduce overall healthcare costs. This is a life and death matter and people are dying because of this flawed system.Healthcare from the Trenches will give you an in-depth behind the scenes look at our system from a practicing doctors' perspective along with contributors ranging from fellow colleagues to beleaguered patients, who offer their insights and share their personal stories to illustrate the inherent shortcomings in the U.S. healthcare industry as well as proposed solutions.

Book Summary: After over two decades of focused research and development, silicon carbide (SiC) is now ready for use in the healthcare sector and Silicon Carbide Technology for Advanced Human Healthcare Applications provides an up-to-date assessment of SiC devices for long-term human use. It explores a plethora of applications that SiC is uniquely positioned for in human healthcare, beginning with the three primary areas of technology which are closest to human trials and thus adoption in the healthcare industry: neural implants and spinal cord repair, graphene and biosensors, and finally deep tissue cancer therapy using SiC nanotechnology. Biomedical-inspired engineers, scientists, and healthcare professionals will find this book to be very useful in two ways: (I) as a guide to new ways to design and develop advanced medical devices and (II) as a reference for new developments in the field. The book’s intent is to stimulate ideas for further technological enhancements and breakthroughs, which will provide alternative solutions for human healthcare applications. Discusses the utilization of SiC materials for biomedical applications Provides a logical pathway to understand why SiC is ideal for several critical applications, in particular for long-term implantable devices, and will serve as a guide to new ways to design and develop advanced medical devices Serves as a reference for new developments in the field and as a technology resource for medical doctors and practitioners looking to identify and implement advanced engineering solutions to everyday medical challenges that currently lack long-term, cost-effective solutions

Covid-19 and the Dialectics of Global Pandemics in Africa

Book Summary: The prevalence of global pandemics has been timeless and universal. In 1918, the Spanish Flue grounded Spain and her neighbours. In 1997, 2014 and 2020, the Ebola virus wreaked havoc in West Africa in the same manner that polio had ravaged the globe. Since 2019, the Coronavirus has forced most economies onto a downward spiral. Despite concerted global attempts at observing World Health Organization guidelines, the Coronavirus has been changing peoples' lives, forcing most economies onto their knees, endangering lives and livelihoods, making a mockery of global medicine and causing the widespread despair and helplessness that has come to be known as 'the new normal'. Unlike the other pandemics, the mayhem, complexities and dialectics caused by Covid-19 have been matchless, requiring a systematic study and necessitating a volume like this one. The volume's 16 well-researched chapters argue that despite Covid-19's enormous lessons and predictions about even greater future pandemics, humanity can ill-afford to relent in its determination to conquer the pandemic in the same way that human resolve has defeated past pandemic. As such, the volume provides hope and direction to the global community on how best to deal with Covid-19 and pandemics of similar or even higher magnitude in the future.

Book Summary: There are four major dilemmas at work in the rapid decline of the United States' healthcare system: the disappearing primary care sector, healthcare insurance reform, the influence of the pharmaceutical industry on the practice of medicine, and reform of malpractice litigation. In this book, Dr. Robert A. Linden provides a comprehensive explanation of these dilemmas, from the perspective of a primary care physician who has spent 30 years working directly with patients and seeing first-hand how changes in the system have impacted patients and physicians. Dr. Linden sorts out the fragments of information that most readers get through the media and fills in the blanks to provide a clear picture of what's wrong with the U.S. healthcare system, an impartial review of proposed solutions, and a look at what other countries have done to reform their healthcare systems. Unlike many academician authors who have covered the problems only in part with skewed information, this book will finally help the healthcare consumer understand the problems facing us and form their own assessments of what should be done to restore the American healthcare system.
