This volume covers the myriad of functional and motility gastrointestinal disorders in a comprehensive manner. The book is divided into seven major sections, with each section beginning with a brief case presentation highlighting the specific disorder to be reviewed. Appropriate criteria is highlighted, followed by a brief review on the epidemiology, etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of each specific disorder. 2-3 key teaching "pearls", test questions and key references are also provided for each chapter. The book is organized so that each chapter can stand on its own and be used as a quick reference source in the clinic. Alternatively, it can be read cover to cover as an authoritative textbook on gastrointestinal functional and motility disorders.
Written by international experts in the field of motility disorders, Functional and Motility Disorders of the Gastrointestinal Tract: A Case Study Approach is an invaluable resource for experienced physicians, students, residents, fellows, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.

The book clearly links theory with applications as well as hardware with hard science. Among topics covered are lasers in mass spectrometry, including instrumentation basic to ion generation for mass analysis; methods of using low and medium laser irradiance; high laser irradiance regime; exotic applications of laser ionization mass spectrometry in space research. 1993 (0-471-53673-3) 584 pp. <p>STATISTICAL METHODS IN ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY —Peter C. Meier and Richard E. Zund <p>Designed to address the practical day-to-day needs of lab chemists, this practical guide demonstrates the ways in which statistics can be used effectively in analytical work. Chapters 1 and 2 present classical statistical techniques, illustrating them in the context of simple situations. Chapter 3 expands the discussion into ancillary techniques, such as exploratory data analysis, made possible with computing. Chapter 4 presents a number of complex examples that might confront the analyst, while emphasizing the conflicting demands imposed on a possible solution. Chapter 5 presents core sections of programs which complement the equations. Complete with a floppy disk of ready-made programs and data files, here is a clear, real-world introduction to maximizing statistical tools in the lab. 1993 (0-471-58454-1) 352 pp. <p>PHOTOCHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION—J. G. Eden <p>Here is an extremely useful overview of photochemical vapor deposition, both its characteristics and potential. The book focuses on the properties of films that have been created by this versatile method and the conditions under which they are grown. The author works from the position that while photochemical vapor deposition (photo-CVD) is not the solution to all low-temperature deposition methodologies, it does provide an added dimension of flexibility to and control over the growth process and has proven to be valuable for those materials and growth steps in device fabrication that are sensitive to the processing temperature. Whenever applicable, the properties of electronic devices incorporating photo-CVD films are presented and numerous tables detail the deposition parameters as well as electrical and structural properties of the films of specific materials. 1992 (0-471-55083-3) 208 pp. <p>Research and development of solid state gas sensor devices began in the 1950s with several uncoordinated independent efforts. The number and pace of these investigations later accelerated in response to increasing pressure placed on the environment and public health by industrial activities. Since 1970, several thousand articles have been written on the subject, and laboratories around the globe have introduced novel methodologies and devices to address needs associated with particular technological developments. Despite the rapid development of this important new technology, very little has been done to review and coordinate data related to sensor science and technology itself. <p>Physics, Chemistry and Technology of Solid State Gas Sensor Devices focuses on the underlying principles of solid state sensor operation and reveals the rich fabric of interdisciplinary science that governs modern sensing devices. Beginning with some historical and scientific background, the text proceeds to a study of the interactions of gases with surfaces. Subsequent chapters present detailed information on the fabrication, performance, and application of a variety of sensors. <p>Types of sensor devices discussed include: <ul><li>Gas-sensitive solid state semiconductor sensors <li>Photonic and photoacoustic gas sensors <li>Fiber optic sensors <li>Piezoelectric quartz crystal microbalance sensors <li>Surface acoustic wave sensors <li>Pyroelectric and thermal sensors</ul> <p>For analytical chemists using solid state sensors in environment-related analysis, and for electrical engineers working with solid state sensors, this book will expand and unify their understanding of these devices, both in theory and practice.
