History and Physical Examination: A Common Sense Approach provides a comprehensive, accessible foundation to the crucial patient care skill of clinical history taking and ‘head-to-toe’ clinical examination. Through full color illustrations, patient photographs, and video examples, this valuable resource highlights a logical, step-by-step approach to gain clinical competency. The authoritative content is divided into three sections to build and develop students’ practical skills: History Flows, which provide context and practice through clinical scenario work, to logically develop differential diagnoses; Physical Examination Flows, which focus on comprehensive and consistent exams by using the human body as a map; and finally, Comprehensive Flows, which enable the student to apply their history taking and examination tools together to develop a differential diagnosis and a treatment plan—all under the real-world pressure of a time-sensitive office visit. Each section features “Clinical Case Practice” for students to interact and apply the clinical concepts and to prepare for actual practice. By moving beyond discrete symptoms, History and Physical Examination: A Common Sense Approach prepares students not only for practical boards, but for delivering humanistic care in real-world patient encounters.

Microservices are responsible for very tightly focused capabilities that are part of a more complex server-side software system. Microservices, when done well, are malleable, scalable, resilient, and allow a short lead time from start of implementation to deployment to production. When using microservices, the need for the technology to be lightweight and low ceremony grows, because creating new microservices needs to be quick and easy. OWIN is great for reuse of plumbing code and a lightweight web framework, like Nancy, is ideal. Microservices in .NET Core teaches readers how to build and deploy secure and operations-friendly microservices using Nancy. The book starts with an introduction to the microservices architectural style.

Wetlands are, by their very nature, ephemeral and transitional, which makes them challenging to characterize. Yet the need for characterizing wetlands continues to grow, particularly as we develop a better understanding of the wealth of ecosystem services that they provide. Wetland Landscape Characterization: Practical Tools, Methods, and Approaches for Landscape Ecology, Second Edition shows how wetland characterization tools, methods, and approaches can be integrated to more effectively address twenty-first-century wetland issues. A Practical Toolbox for Integrated Wetland Landscape Characterization The book explains how to locate, identify, and map the extent of wetlands to learn more about their importance to society and the larger landscape. It examines jurisdictional, regulatory, and practical applications from the scientific, engineering, and lay perspectives. Fully updated, the second edition reflects an emerging infrastructural, ecosystem goods-and-services perspective to better assist readers who may encounter these concepts and challenges as they assess and characterize wetlands. Examples and case studies illustrate a variety of situations and solutions, highlighting the use of current techniques to assess, inventory, and monitor natural resources under changing conditions. These examples offer lessons and ideas for the issues encountered every day by wetland landscape ecology practitioners. The book also refers readers to additional resources to help them solve specific challenges. New in This Edition Updates of practical geospatial methods More project-driven examples A description of the pitfalls of using ecological data at landscape scales, along with solutions Alternative techniques for a variety of practitioners Linkages between field and landscape ecological practices Online resources for practitioners New illustrations This book helps readers develop the concepts, skills, and understanding of how to best achieve project goals in the rapidly changing disciplines of landscape science and wetland ecology and management. A valuable resource, it provides practical tools, methods, and approaches for conceptualizing, designing, and implementing broad-scale wetland projects that take into account critical societal linkages.
