This book comprehensively addresses the physics and engineering aspects of human physiology by using and building on first-year college physics and mathematics. Topics include the mechanics of the static body and the body in motion, the mechanical properties of the body, muscles in the body, the energetics of body metabolism, fluid flow in the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, the acoustics of sound waves in speaking and hearing, vision and the optics of the eye, the electrical properties of the body, and the basic engineering principles of feedback and control in regulating all aspects of function. The goal of this text is to clearly explain the physics issues concerning the human body, in part by developing and then using simple and subsequently more refined models of the macrophysics of the human body. Many chapters include a brief review of the underlying physics. There are problems at the end of each chapter; solutions to selected problems are also provided. This second edition enhances the treatments of the physics of motion, sports, and diseases and disorders, and integrates discussions of these topics as they appear throughout the book. Also, it briefly addresses physical measurements of and in the body, and offers a broader selection of problems, which, as in the first edition, are geared to a range of student levels. This text is geared to undergraduates interested in physics, medical applications of physics, quantitative physiology, medicine, and biomedical engineering.

The IOL technical specifications, the clinical data, and the necessary clinical and surgical skills comprise the scientific foundation for achieving a "premium" refractive outcome. To consistently achieve patient satisfaction, however, requires mastering the art of patient and IOL selection, communicating and counseling effectively, and providing a "premium" patient experience. This is a nontraditional book in which multiple experts are separately asked to discuss controversial subjects in a reader-friendly format. There is balanced coverage of all of the available refractive IOLs, as well as those that may become available in the near future. A major emphasis is placed on avoiding and managing complications or potentially dissatisfied patients. There are more than 200 chapters that are organized into 14 major sections, over 300 images, 100 tables, and 12 sidebars that cover every aspect of refractive IOL clinical practice. This is a comprehensive educational resource addressing the most demanding and rapidly evolving area in cataract and refractive surgery today and the first book to cover both the clinical and nonclinical aspects of offering refractive IOL services.

Immunization Safety Review

Infection with the influenza virus can have a serious effect on the health of people of all ages, although it is particularly worrisome for infants, the elderly, and people with underlying heart or lung problems. A vaccine exists (the “flu†shot) that can greatly decrease the impact of influenza. Because the strains of virus that are expected to cause serious illness and death are slightly different every year, the vaccine is also slightly different every year and it must be given every year, unlike other vaccines. The Immunization Safety Review committee reviewed the data on influenza vaccine and neurological conditions and concluded that the evidence favored rejection of a causal relationship between influenza vaccines and exacerbation of multiple sclerosis. For the other neurological conditions studied, the committee concluded the evidence about the effects of influenza vaccine is inadequate to accept or reject a causal relationship. The committee also reviewed theories on how the influenza vaccine could damage the nervous system. The evidence was at most weak that the vaccine could act in humans in ways that could lead to these neurological problems.
