Glial Neuronal Signaling fills a need for a monograph/textbook to be used in advanced courses or graduate seminars aimed at exploring glial-neuronal interactions. Even experts in the field will find useful the authoritative summaries of evidence on ion channels and transporters in glia, genes involved in signaling during development, metabolic cross talk and cooperation between astrocytes and neurons, to mention but a few of the timely summaries of a wide range of glial-neuronal interactions. The chapters are written by the top researchers in the field of glial-neuronal signaling, and cover the most current advances in this field. The book will also be of value to the workers in the field of cell biology in general. When we think about the brain we usually think about neurons. Although there are 100 billion neurons in mammalian brain, these cells do not constitute a majority. Quite the contrary, glial cells and other non-neuronal cells are 10-50 times more numerous than neurons. This book is meant to integrate the emerging body of information that has been accumulating, revealing the interactive nature of the brain's two major neural cell types, neurons and glia, in brain function.

Recent NICE guidance and restructuring of the way acute services are provided mean that nurses outside the traditional critical care environment are increasingly being called upon to recognize, assess, and treat the acutely ill patient. This book will equip nurses in more general wards with the knowledge and skills to care appropriately for the deteriorating patient in the clinical environment. It follows a systems-based approach, with each chapter incorporatinglearning outcomes, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, nursing management, and competence-based skills assessment. Case studies facilitate the linking of knowledge to practice. Other issues coveredinclude an exploration of why there is a need to develop acute care, the role of outreach, acute emergency situations, transfer of the acutely ill patient, caring for the post ITU patient, documentation in acute care, and continuing education and acute care delivery. The book is aimed at nurses who work in acute and high-dependency areas, as well as more general nurses who are increasingly dealing with the critically or acutely ill patient.
