Verbrennungen kommen häufig vor, meist als Folge eines Unfalls. Manche Wunden heilen spontan, andere müssen in einem Brandverletzten-Zentrum versorgt werden. Dieses Kompendium bietet einen schnellen Überblick über den aktuellen Wissensstand zur Diagnose und Therapie von Verbrennungen. Erstversorgung, Flächen- und Tiefenbestimmung, chirurgische Versorgung, Haut und Hautersatz sind nur eine kleine Auswahl der behandelten Themen. Das Buch richtet sich an alle Berufsgruppen, die Verbrennungen behandeln, ob als Notarzt, Chirurg oder Pflegekraft.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

In seinem Kultbuch „Eine kurze Geschichte der Menschheit“ erklärte Yuval Noah Harari, wie unsere Spezies die Erde erobern konnte. In „Homo Deus“ stößt er vor in eine noch verborgene Welt: die Zukunft. Was wird mit uns und unserem Planeten passieren, wenn die neuen Technologien dem Menschen gottgleiche Fähigkeiten verleihen – schöpferische wie zerstörerische – und das Leben selbst auf eine völlig neue Stufe der Evolution heben? Wie wird es dem Homo Sapiens ergehen, wenn er einen technikverstärkten Homo Deus erschafft, der sich vom heutigen Menschen deutlicher unterscheidet als dieser vom Neandertaler? Was bleibt von uns und der modernen Religion des Humanismus, wenn wir Maschinen konstruieren, die alles besser können als wir? In unserer Gier nach Gesundheit, Glück und Macht könnten wir uns ganz allmählich so weit verändern, bis wir schließlich keine Menschen mehr sind.

What is a wound, how does it heal, and how can we prevent scarring? The concept of wound healing has puzzled humans even before the advent of modern medicine. In recent years, bioengineering has tackled the problems of cancer, tissue engineering and molecular manufacturing. The broad spectrum of technologies developed in these fields could potentially transform the wound care practice. However, entering the world of wound healing research is challenging — a broad spectrum of knowledge is required to understand wounds and improve healing. This book provides an essential introduction of the field of wound healing to bioengineers and scientists outside the field of medicine. Written by leading researchers from various fields, this book is a comprehensive primer that gives readers a holistic understanding of the field of wound biology, diagnostics and treatment technologies. Contents:Scarless Tissue Regeneration (Alexander Golberg)Anatomy of the Human Skin and Wound Healing (Amit Sharma, Labib R Zakka and Martin C Mihm Jr)Deprived and Enriched Environments: How Sensory Stimulation Affects Wound Healing (Jonathan G Fricchione and John B Levine)Models of Ischemic and Vascular Wounds (Michael T Watkins and Hassan Albadawi)Developmental Biology of Skin Wound Healing: On Pathways and Genes Controlling Regeneration Versus Scarring (Sarah Susan Kelangi and Marianna Bei)Nutrition, Metabolism, and Wound Healing Process (Yong-Ming Yu and Alan J Fischman)Polarization Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography for Imaging of Wound Repair (Martin Villiger and Brett E Bouma)Functional Imaging of Wound Metabolism (Jake Jones, Vasily Belov and Kyle P Quinn)Functional Skin Substitutes — The Intersection of Tissue Engineering and Biomaterials (Kevin Dooley, Julie Devalliere and Basak Uygun)Biomaterial-Based Systems for Pharmacologic Treatment of Wound Repair (Mara A Pop, Julia B Sun and Benjamin D Almquist)Laser Tissue Welding in Wound Healing and Surgical Repair (Russell Urie, Tanner Flake and Kaushal Rege)Bioprinting for Wound Healing Applications (Aleksander Skardal, Sean Murphy, Anthony Atala and Shay Soker)Electroporation Applications in Wound Healing (Laure Gibot, Tadej Kotnik and Alexander Golberg) Readership: Bioengineers, scientists, researchers and graduate students outside the field of medicine.

Wound healing and wound care technologies are an ever expanding field with the advancement of materials science, biomedicine and tissue engineering. In the year 2011 the global wound care market generated US$ 6,500 million with an annual growth rate of 7.5%. The global advanced wound care products market share in 2023 is predicted to be approximately US$ 16,300 million.This book discusses the evolution of wound care devices and protocol over the years and different technologies being used in the present day wound care treatment. New strategies involving engineered tissues and drug delivery to mimic the natural wound healing milieu are discussed. The use of cytokine growth factors enhances chronic wound healing particularly for burn wound healing. Prevention of scarring, keloid formation or contractures and a cosmetically acceptable healing is a challenge even now.Skin tissue engineering was the first successfully clinically applied product in regenerative medicine. Bioengineered skin seeded with fibroblast and keratinocyte cells could form a permanent solution that do not require skin grafting or as a temporary cover for burns prior to grafting. Cell attachment, proliferation and tissue formation in a three-dimensional porous scaffold can be engineered for specific application. These cell based skin substitutes had significant wound healing and scar reducing effect on patients.Gene-activated dermal equivalent is another emerging approach for the healing of full thickness incision wounds with good remodelling of the skin. The book also describes similar latest developments on wound healing science and research.The target audiences are wound care professionals, researchers working on wound healing technology and skin tissue engineering; as well as graduate students and industries that need to understand the aspects of wound healing and technological orientation towards successful commercialisation.

This book traces the social and environmental determinants of human infectious diseases from the Neolithic to the present day. Despite recent high profile discoveries of new pathogens, the major determinants of these emerging infections are ancient and recurring. These include changing modes of subsistence, shifting populations, environmental disruptions, and social inequalities. The recent labeling of the term "re-emerging infections" reflects a re-emergence, not so much of the diseases themselves, but rather a re-emerging awareness in affluent societies of long-standing problems that were previously ignored. An Unnatural History of Emerging Infections illustrates these recurring problems and determinants through an examination of three major epidemiological transitions. The First Transition occurred with the Agricultural Revolution beginning 10,000 years ago, bringing a rise in acute infections as the main cause of human mortality. The Second Transition first began with the Industrial Revolution; it saw a decline in infectious disease mortality and an increase in chronic diseases among wealthier nations, but less so in poorer societies. These culminated in today's "worst of both worlds syndrome" in which globalization has combined with the challenges of the First and Second Transitions to produce a Third Transition, characterized by a confluence of acute and chronic disease patterns within a single global disease ecology. This accessible text is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate level students and researchers in the fields of epidemiology, disease ecology, anthropology, health sciences, and the history of medicine. It will also be of relevance and use to undergraduate students interested in the history and social dynamics of infectious diseases.
