Бащите не си отиват by Невена Дишлиева-Кръстева (Съставител) , Надежда Радулова , Марин Бодаков , Кети Иванова , Manol Peykov , Биляна Курташева , Валентин Дишев , Силвия Чол

"Бащите растат. Понякога се превръщат в призраци и тревожат някой мрачен Елсинор. Друг път са непоклатими като Каменния гост…” В тази книга са събрани две дузини разкази за начините, по които покойните бащи остават с децата си. Отворените от тях празноти са място за размисъл за едни, убежище за други, за трети – обида. Като говорят за баща си, едни говорят за приятел, друг "Бащите растат. Понякога се превръщат в призраци и тревожат някой мрачен Елсинор. Друг път са непоклатими като Каменния гост…” В тази книга са събрани две дузини разкази за начините, по които покойните бащи остават с децата си. Отворените от тях празноти са място за размисъл за едни, убежище за други, за трети – обида. Като говорят за баща си, едни говорят за приятел, други за ангел, трети за странник, четвърти за себе си. Едни са осиротели твърде рано, други – “няма изчисления, които да накарат смъртта на любим човек да изглежда навременна”. Едни бащи са герои на публиката, други са “от онези герои, за които малцина си спомнят и за които няма да бъде написана книга”. “Бащите не си отиват” е за живота и за смъртта. За щастието, което “не е банално, защото е лично”. За възпитанието като опора. За необходимостта от възхита. За упоритостта да си добър. В тези страници се съдържа и още нещо: един косвено нахвърлян, но рядко убедителен портрет на нацията с елементи история, които тепърва ще свикваме да изговаряме. “Не познаваме своите родители – заявява една от разказвачките. – Какви са били, как е минала младостта им, игрите им, какво са обичали, за какво ги е боляло, какво са си мечтаели в летните нощи, как са се справяли с живота, със своите родители, с липсата на свобода, с липсата на любов? Това нямахме време да попитаме…” Между тези корици има и време, и въпроси, и отговори.

The Obscure Logic of the Heart by Priya Basil

A devoted Muslim daughter, a secret relationship, an impossible dilemma... Lina Merali has always been the apple of her father's eye. When she meets Anil Mayur, a wealthy, cultured and decidedly liberal student of architecture from Kenya's Asian community, the intensity of her feelings for someone so different takes her by surprise. She is political and he is not; she is o A devoted Muslim daughter, a secret relationship, an impossible dilemma... Lina Merali has always been the apple of her father's eye. When she meets Anil Mayur, a wealthy, cultured and decidedly liberal student of architecture from Kenya's Asian community, the intensity of her feelings for someone so different takes her by surprise. She is political and he is not; she is of modest background and he is not; she is a Muslim and he is not... While Lina's parents still dream of a suitable boy for their eldest daughter, she engages in an intricate game of deceit to hide her blossoming relationship. When Lina's mother chances upon a suitcase of their love letters, a moral chasm threatens to tear the family and the lovers apart. The dilemma becomes ever more complex as Lina's work for the UN exposes her to the corruption in Kenya where the Mayur family have close links to the ruling party. As the stakes escalate Lina must decide where her loyalties lie. Is it the case, as she thinks at one point, 'that the world, finally, is what lies closest to your heart?' Or, the novel asks, are there greater considerations, which must trump all other allegiances? Bold, lyrical and deeply moving, The Obscure Logic of the Heart interweaves two narratives: one intimate, one epic. From the streets of Birmingham to the plains of Kenya, and the refugee camps of Sudan, this page-turning story examines the tumultuous lives of two people trapped between the dictates of faith, family and love.

On the Edge of Life: Diary of a Medical Intensive Care Unit by Mikkael A. Sekeres , Theodore Stern

An extraordinary tale, told by the freshly-minted doctors rotating through the Medical Intensive Care Unit of one of the world’s greatest hospitals, collected and placed into context by Cleveland Clinic physician Mikkael Sekeres, M.D., frequent contributor to the New York Times Well Blog and award-winning columnist for Oncology Times, and Theodore Stern, M.D., the Chief of An extraordinary tale, told by the freshly-minted doctors rotating through the Medical Intensive Care Unit of one of the world’s greatest hospitals, collected and placed into context by Cleveland Clinic physician Mikkael Sekeres, M.D., frequent contributor to the New York Times Well Blog and award-winning columnist for Oncology Times, and Theodore Stern, M.D., the Chief of the Psychiatric Consultation Service at the Massachusetts General Hospital and a Harvard Medical School professor of Psychiatry. The entries recorded in the seven-volume “Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) Journal” cover a twenty-year period, beginning in January, 1980, and reflect the unguarded reflections of these interns and residents as they are thrown into the chaos of the Massachusetts General Hospital intensive care unit, the last resort of medical care for much of New England, where only the sickest of the sickest patients are referred. Join these young doctors as they struggle with extremes of medical care, the outrageousness of humor in the midst of such despair, their first encounters with death, and ultimately take a step back to appreciate the miracle of survival as the human spirit triumphs over medical calamity. It is remarkable that, even as these interns and residents themselves toil through 36-hour, sleepless shifts, they steal away for a few minutes to write an entry in this diary, to place their experience in a greater context. It is even more incredible that their words, recorded at the peak of vulnerability, have survived.

A Nurse's Story by Tilda Shalof

The team of nurses that Tilda Shalof found herself working with in the intensive care unit (ICU) of a big-city hospital was known as “Laura’s Line.” They were a bit wild: smart, funny, disrespectful of authority, but also caring and incredibly committed to their jobs.

Laura set the tone with her quick remarks. Frances, from Newfoundland, was famous for her improvised recipes. Justine, the union rep, wore t-shirts emblazoned with defiant slogans, like “Nurses Care But It’s Not in the Budget.” Shalof was the one who had been to university. The others accused her of being “sooo sensitive.” They depended upon one another. Working in the ICU was both emotionally grueling and physically exhausting. Many patients, quite simply, were dying, and the staff strove mightily to prolong their lives. With their skill, dedication, and the resources of modern science, they sometimes were almost too successful. Doctors and nurses alike wondered if what they did for terminally-ill patients was not, in some cases, too extreme. A number of patients were admitted when it was too late even for heroic measures. A boy struck down by a cerebral aneurysm in the middle of a little-league hockey game. A woman rescued – too late – from a burning house. It all took its toll on the staff. And yet, on good days, they thrived on what they did. Shalof describes a colleague who is managing a “crashing” patient: “I looked at her. Nicky was flushed with excitement. She was doing five different things at the same time, planning ahead for another five. She was totally focused, in her element, in control, completely at home with the chaos. There was a huge smile on her face. Nurses like to fix things. If they can.” Shalof, a veteran ICU nurse, reveals what it is really like to work behind the closed hospital curtains. The drama, the sardonic humour, the grinding workload, the cheerful camaraderie, the big issues and the small, all are brought vividly to life in this remarkable book. From the Hardcover edition.

In the recent years, in fact, five new randomised controlled trials and five new meta-analyses demonstrate that selective decontamination of the digestive tract [SDD] is an antimicrobial prophylaxis to prevent severe infections of not only lower airways but also of blood. Additionally, SDD has been shown to reduce inflammation including multiple organ failure and mortality. An intriguing observation is the evidence that SDD using parenteral and enteral antimicrobials reduces rather than increases antimicrobial resistance. Moreover, a new chapter on microcirculation had been added. The volume will be an invaluable tool for all those requiring in depth knowledge in the ever expanding field of infection control.

Neurochemical Monitoring in the Intensive Care Unit: Microdialysis, Jugular Venous Oximetry and Near-Infrared Spectroscopy by TAKASHI, ED. TSUBOKAWA

The major neuromonitoring techniques employed in ICU are the recording of neurophysiological parameters.

From this information it is difficult to assess the neurochemical and metabolic status of the brain, the real-time knowledge of which would be extremely useful for patient care. Recent technological developments have opened up the possibility of monitoring neurochemical and metabolic changes in the brain in a clinical setting. In particular, microdialysis allows the analysis of extracellular neurotransmitters and metabolites, and jugular venous oximetry and near-infrared spectroscopy are beginning to provide valuable information on cerebral oxygen metabolism. The First International Symposium of Neurochemical Monitoring in ICU allowed active investigators to debate their findings. These proceedings thus represent a state-of-the-art review of the clinical application of real-time neurochemical monitoring.
