The chapters in this volume present the latest developments in medicine and biology. Chapters One reviews on m-Health in prehospital emergency medicine. Chapter Two analyzes regional telemedicine network for the diagnosis and care of cardiac malformations. Chapter Three describes a computational fluid dynamic (CFD) approach with the aim to simulate the flow of blood with cardiac pulse through the aorta artery with aneurysm disease. In Chapter Four, a CFD study was carried out for real geometries of one specific patient and was resolved numerically the Navier-Stokes equations for the blood flow in abdominal aortic aneurysms with a pulsatile inlet condition in the ascending aorta. Chapter Five reviews a CFD of the blood flow using pulsatile inlet condition in the ascending aorta with aneurysm disease. Chapter Six examines a CDF methodology in order to analyze the features of the pulsatile blood flow in patients with exovascular Stent Devices in abdominal aortic aneurysms. Chapter Seven focuses on hyponatremia in heart failure. Chapter Eight discusses neuroglial potassium channels in health and disease. Chapter Nine discusses the impact of preventing and treating periodontal and peri-implant inflammation on peri-implantitis risks reduction, and highlights the importance of managing periodontal and early peri-implant biological complications in order to prevent occurrence or progression of peri-implantitis. Chapter Ten studies the application of direct analysis in real time mass spectrometry on designer drug identification. Chapter Eleven reviews current understanding of tick antioxidant defense with emphasis on its potential as a target for tick and tick-borne pathogen control. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
