Riassunto: Advances in Medicine provides up-to-date information on five important ways that people are treated for disease, from the use of antibiotics and vaccines to performing organ transplants and treating cancer and chronic pain.
From Booklist: This entry in the middle-grade, research-friendly Advances in Medicine series offers students and report writers some very helpful insights on how pain happens anatomically and on pain medications and treatments, including both Western and alternative medicines, such as acupuncture. The engaging conversational tone is sensitive to its intended audience, and crisp, clear color images break up the potentially dense text. But not a word is wasted, and Colligan makes great use of tables, such as a thorough comparison of pain drugs; sidebars, which explore such unusual facts as high pain tolerance in redheads; and accessible case studies. The information is up-to-date enough to discuss such contemporary issues as the use of video-game technology in pain relief and inclusive enough to regularly warn readers to seek adult help before undertaking self-medication for pain. In addition to being a helpful homework volume, this might be offered to youth with friends or siblings who suffer from such painful conditions as scoliosis or cancer. Grades 6-9. --Francisca Goldsmith
