Anatomy of the hand( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When used with delicacy, the hand is capable of manipulation that goes far beyond what might be expected of its mechanical design. This program demonstrates how the hand functions, spotlighting the opposable nature of the thumb, and how the nerve network and blood vessels deploy. The pathologies of common damage, including carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist fractures, "mallet finger," and degenerative dysfunctions, are investigated as well. (15 minutes)
Anatomy of the shoulder( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A ball-and-socket joint capable of a complex range of motion, the shoulder achieves its mobility through the sacrifice of stability, relying on surrounding muscles and tendons for strength. This program presents the technical specifications of the shoulder: what muscles sheathe it, how it functions, and its range of motion. Conditions such as bursitis, tendonitis, dislocation, and fracture of the clavicle are also discussed. (18 minutes)
Anatomy of the ankle and foot( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ankle, a major weight-bearing joint, is injured more than any other part of the body. After examining the surface features of the foot and ankle, this program probes the deeper layers, highlighting major bones, muscles, ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves. Special attention is given to the arches and the ankle joint with respect to stability. Common ankle and foot injuries, such as sprains and fractures, are also explained
Anatomy of the knee( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although it is a major weight-bearing joint, the knee is surprisingly flexible in all manner of forward, reverse, and lateral motions. This program addresses the intricate mechanics of the knee joint's musculature, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. In addition, traumas to the menisci and the collateral and cruciate ligaments-the most commonly damaged structures-are described
An Introduction to visual fields( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program provides a systematic overview of visual fields and their associated defects. After key terms are defined, a dynamic 3-D model of the brain and visual system is employed to illustrate the neuroanatomy of the eyes. A full demonstration of confrontational testing is then followed by a look at both kinetic and static automated field-testing techniques and an introduction to the visual field chart. The program closes by displaying the effects of various neurological lesions on the visual fields. (26 minutes)
An Introduction to ophthalmoscopy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program demonstrates how to use a direct ophthalmoscope to examine patients' retinas. A detailed examination technique segment is followed by examples of clinical abnormalities to be looked for during a checkup. Juxtaposed with images of ordinary retinal tissue, the examples clearly display the signs of key pathologies. Possible causes of retinal abnormalities are presented, and common errors in interpreting those abnormalities are addressed. (27 minutes)
Classifying commensals and pathogens( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program provides a clinical overview of benign bacteria that commonly colonize the human body and, less commonly, pathogens of both infectious and transient asymptomatic strains. Two dramatized throat examinations demonstrate the diagnosis of Streptococcus pyogenes and infectious mononucleosis. Laboratory analysis of a throat culture and a blood sample is demonstrated. Slide images, diagrams, and lists of microorganisms are also incorporated into the video. (15 minutes)
Describing data( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with an explanation of the difference between "qualitative" and "quantitative" data, this program goes on to explain various ways of presenting data, including Dot Plots, Bar Charts, and Histograms. The program also explains Summary Measures, Characteristic Values, and how to arrive at the Mode, Median, and Mean, with a discussion of their individual drawbacks and advantages. The program goes on to discuss handling the Spread of Distribution, and explains techniques for measuring Spread, including Quartiles, Inter-quartile Range, and Standard Deviation, and concludes with modeling using Normal Distribution. (25 minutes)
Vanishing points introduction to architectural drawing( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From conceptual sketches to detailed blueprints, drawings serve as the vehicle for translating architectural visions into masterpieces of design and construction. This outstanding program provides a concise demonstration of axonometric, isometric, and one-point and two-point perspective drawing. Computer graphics are employed to help explain the underlying principles of architectural drawing, while student projects serve as examples of well-executed drafting. (20 minutes)
Using samples( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program begins with an explanation of the difference between a Population and a Sample, and the reasons why samples are so important in estimating data relating to populations too large or too impractical to be measured in their entirety. The program emphasizes the need for random samples, explains how several random samples of the same size will vary, and then looks at ways of dealing with this variability, calculating the Standard Error of the Mean, and how to estimate the "95% Confidence Interval. The program goes on to show how, when dealing with quantitative data, you can calculate the size of the sample that is needed in order to achieve the precision required
Personality disorders( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Personality disorders come in various varieties and degrees of severity, including persistent, ingrained behavior patterns; extreme deviant behavior; and problems in social functioning. Histrionic disorder, anankastic disorder, anxiety disorder, and dependent disorder are the common categories. This program, filmed in the U.K., looks at the most common disorders-paranoid, histrionic, and dissocial. It describes their symptoms and criteria for diagnosis. Patients exhibit the symptoms in interviews conducted by psychiatrists
Bivariate data when y depends on x( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program demonstrates how "qualitative" bivariate data can be visualized by using a modification of the simple Bar Chart. Quantitative data is dealt with by developing the Dot Plot into the Scatter Diagram, which allows any correlation to show itself in a linear relation. The program explains how this correlation can be modeled by calculating a "Line of Best Fit," how to calculate 95% Confidence Bands, and how to calculate a summary measure for any correlation called the Correlation Coefficient. Finally, the program explains how to deal with data that indicates a curved Line of Best Fit by either finding a way of re-plotting to provide a linear correlation or, alternatively, how to calculate a curved Line of Best Fit
Mood Disorders( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mood disorders, or affective disorders, are discussed in this program together with their symptoms and differential diagnoses. Classifications are based upon the course and severity of symptoms. The two main classifications of mood disorders-- manic and depressive-- are clearly defined and differentiated according to symptoms. The persistent mood disorders cyclothymia and dysthymia are discussed, along with medical causes of mood disorders, such as hypothalamic tumor
Handling variability( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program examines the measurement of blood pressure to introduce the idea that multiple measurements may produce very variable results. The idea that measurement "errors," together with fluctuations in the parameters being measured, create variability is followed by an explanation of both Systematic and Random Error and the recognition of the need for statistical techniques to handle this variability in order to allow inferences to be drawn and decisions made.
