Bargaining for life : a social history of tuberculosis, 1876-1938 by Barbara Bates( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and held by 661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tuberculosis was the most common cause of death in the nineteenth century. The lingering illness devastated the lives of patients and families, and by the turn of the century, fears of infectiousness compounded their anguish. Historians have usually focused on the changing medical knowledge of tuberculosis or on the social campaign to combat it. In Bargaining for Life, Barbara Bates documents the human story. Using a wide range of sources, especially the extensive correspondence of a Philadelphia physician, Lawrence F. Flick, Bates portrays the lives of tuberculous men and women as they tried to cope with the illness, get treatment, earn their living, and maintain their social relationships. Their caretakers, including relatives, clergy, physicians, and nurses, all had their own reasons for providing help. In ways that differed with class, race, gender, and sometimes political influence, sanatoriums, hospitals, and visiting nurse societies mediated various bargains between the sick and their caretakers. Bates concludes that the campaign to control and cure tuberculosis had little impact on the disease, but it offered care, assuaged fears of infection, and expanded the welfare system. Choices made by the sick helped to shape the institutions and affected the results of the campaign. Many of the bargains between patients and caretakers are still discernible in the U.S. health care system. Bates has written an extraordinarily insightful book that combines social history, medical history, and nursing history. It will interest scholars, students, health professionals, and general readers who care about and care for chronically ill people

Guide de l'examen clinique by Barbara Bates( Book )

25 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in French and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le Guide de l'examen clinique de Barbara Bates reste une référence d'apprentissage pour les étudiants en médecine qui doivent acquérir un savoir-faire médical : dialoguer avec un patient, l'écouter, l'examiner, savoir pratiquer et interpréter l'examen clinique pour comprendre et évaluer ses problèmes. La qualité de cet ouvrage repose sur ses principes fondamentaux qui en ont fait sa " marque de fabrique " et assurent sa notoriété : répondre aux demandes des enseignants et des étudiants ; faciliter la lecture tout en optimisant l'efficacité pédagogique ; proposer en abondance de nouvelles données étayant les techniques de l'interrogatoire, de l'examen et de la promotion de la santé. Ces principes s'expriment notamment par une présentation très soigneusement élaborée qui fait la distinction entre l'examen clinique normal, décrit au fil des pages, et les signes pathologiques qui sont abordés en regard dans les parties latérales de cet ouvrage et dans les tableaux en fin de chapitre."
