ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, cannot be cured but it can be treated. A great deal can be done to treat the symptoms of ALS, to improve an individual's quality of life and to help families, caregivers and loved ones to cope with the disease. This extensively revised and rewritten new edition of the bestselling Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A Guide For Patients and Families addresses all of those needs and brings up-to-date important information to those living with the reality of ALS. The book is completely revised throughout and contains new information on: Recently developed approaches to treating ALS symptoms Use of non-invasive ventilators Multidisciplinary team care New guidelines being developed by the American Academy of Neurology for patients with ALS The use of riluzole (Rilutek) to treat ALS. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis covers every aspect of the management of ALS, from clinical features of the disease, to diagnosis, to an overview of symptom management. Major sections deal with medical and rehabilitative management, living with ALS, managing advanced disease, end-of-life issues, and resources that can provide support and assistance in this time of need.

Reviews from Previous Editions...this book is a good start at pulling together all of the parts of a person's life affected by ALS. It contains comprehensive information and covers the issues patients and families deal with. - Mary Kugler, R.N., Rare Diseases ""Well written and avoids jargon and highly technical language. It would serve as a useful introduction to clinicians who are dealing with ALS for the first time as well as a guide to patients and families. - Physical Therapy ""This is truly the most comprehensive manual available for the management of ALS. It is an obligatory resource for patients with ALS and their families and for the health care professionals helping to look after them."" -- Archives of Neurology ""... a very comprehensive guide to medical treatment, rehabilitation, day-to-day living, end-of-life issues, and supportive resources."" -- Disability Resources Monthly ""...there's no better reference on the subject than the extensive Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, now updated and thoroughly revised. New information on new treatments, the use of noninvasive ventilators, and new guidelines by the AAN for treatments make this an essential key acquisition for any health library"".-- California Bookwatch, July 2009 From symptoms to medicine to more, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a top pick for those who want to be armed with the knowledge they need to deal with the disease.""--Library Bookwatch, July 2009 ""This third edition is a welcome update and will serve as an invaluable resourcefor readers desiring to educate themselves about ALS and the latest strategies in comprehensive management.--Katherine Noe, MD, PhD(Mayo Clinic Hospital), Doodys Reviews
