When you need the absolute best in health care, John Hopkins is the institute ranked #1 year after year. And when you want answers fast, turn to the "Johns Hopkins Family Health Book" for the knowledge you need from a name you know. Developed in consultation with an advisory board of more than 100 Johns Hopkins physicians, nurses, and health professionals, this indispensable home and medical resource covers a broad range of family health issues and focuses on maintaining good health and preventing diseases.
Read "How to Use this Book" first to learn how the book is organized and to find out where to look for information you need, whether you are trying to interpret symptoms, wish to know more about a medication, or are looking for general health and nutrition facts.
Part 1. Staying Healthy provides the underpinnings of a healthy lifestyle, including recommendations on nutrition, exercise, everyday safety, smoking, alcohol, and addiction.
Part 2. Health Over the Life Course details what you need to know about genetics and your family health history, and the special health concerns of pregnancy and childbirth, infancy, the preschool to preteen years, the teen years, adulthood, and the senior years.
Part 3. First Aid and Emergency Care gives you the tools to evaluate health emergencies, from everyday cuts and bruises to life-threatening crises.
Part 4. Body Systems and Disorders describes the functions of the body systems from head to toe and the most common problems related to them. You will learn what your symptoms mean, what signs a doctor looks for and the tests used during diagnosis, how a problemdevelops, and what can be done to treat or prevent it. Each chapter also discusses self-care measures and advises you on when to call a doctor.
Part 5. Becoming a Partner in Your Health Care offers strategies for negotiating today' s difficult health care environment, including finding the right doctor and health care plan.
The Appendices include a comprehensive directory of the 80 most prescribed medications; glossary; growth chart; living wills and advance directives; measurement conversions and laboratory tests. Designed for instant access, the index highlights symptoms in red and primary entries in bold. A 48-page full-color insert of anatomy, disorders, and diseases, over 500 black-and-white and two-color illustrations, and endpapers featuring emergency first aid procedures--prepared by Johns Hopkins' renowned Art as Applied to Medicine department--complete this invaluable family reference.
