Book Description:
An Essential Guide to Menís and Womenís Health begins by providing a current summary of bone health in men. Topics include: the epidemiology and temporal trends of low bone mass, osteoporosis and related fractures; the morbidity and mortality associated with osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures; low bone mass risk factors and etiology; and osteoporotic risk assessment. The book includes a study with the goal of understanding workersí social representation of occupational risks and preventive measures. A qualitative approach was utilised based on social representation theory Ė processual approach. The sample was comprised of male workers from a municipal service responsible for cleaning and conservation of the public area with no permanent contract in a large city in the South-eastern region of Brazil. The authors describe working conditions and health conditions of men from small enterprises in Campinasí Fruit and Vegetables Warehouse Wholesale. A cross-sectional study with a sample of 200 male workers was developed. Data collection was performed using the following instruments: questionnaire with socio-demographic data, lifestyle, health and work aspects, QSETES elaborated on by author Monteiro and a stress scale adapted by Monteiro based on Elo et al. The following chapter argues that many poor health outcomes of girls and women in India can be attributed to their low status, notably female economic devaluation. The author focuses on dowry, an issue with historical antecedents, that has failed to be addressed or even exacerbated by the entry of the country into the global economy. Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is examined as one of the worldís leading causes of maternal mortality. Various conservative surgical procedures have been developed in recent years to reduce the need for hysterectomy, including external compression sutures, selective de-vascularization by surgical ligation or radiological embolization of the uterine and pelvic arteries and intrauterine balloon tamponade. The authors also examine the correlation between the development of congenital malformations and teratogenesis brought on by adverse conditions within the millieur interieur of the developing embryo, suggesting that the pharmacokinetic processes must be seen in the perspective of maternal and fetal lethal dose parameters. A study on perceived motives for contraceptive interference (CI) is included, hypothesizing that common barriers to male condom use might also be perceived as motives for CI enacted by a man toward his female partner.
