    Description

    This practical handbook provides readers with a quick but comprehensive overview of the major infectious disease topics and clinical approach to diagnosis and management. Covering the core areas of importance to students, residents, fellows, and practitioners in any discipline, the book presents a systematic method for understanding basic mechanisms, establishing a diagnosis, and implementing appropriate treatment for commonly encountered problems. Written in outline format with 46 short, focused chapters, this ready reference is essential reading for physicians looking for guidance in navigating the constellation of symptoms and myriad treatment options for patients with infectious diseases.

    Organized by body system, each section begins with a general framework covering clinical presentation, laboratory and diagnostic evaluation, and empirical antibiotic therapy. Individual chapters within sections are devoted to particular diseases and cover pathogenesis and risk factors, microbial causes, clinical manifestations, approach to the patient (history, examination, and diagnostic studies), diagnostic criteria, and medical, antimicrobial, and surgical management. Essentials of Clinical Infectious Diseases also addresses important related topics including antimicrobial agents, medical microbiology, fever and neutropenia, approach to evaluating leukocytosis, infectious diseases approach to SIRS and sepsis, and basics of infection control and hospital epidemiology. With this book, readers will have at hand the fundamental knowledge necessary to sharpen the clinical problem-solving skills that every medical professional needs to provide quality care to patients.

    Features of Essentials of Clinical Infectious Diseases include:

    • A detailed discussion of core infectious disease topics
    • Antibiotic information specific to the disease process with adult, pediatric, and OB-GYN dosing considerations
    • Basic infection control procedures for hospitalized patients
    • Coverage of important related topics
    • References to current literature and classic articles for further study

    Editorial Review(s)

    ****4 Stars**** "Approaches near perfection...This is an excellent introduction to infectious diseases by a group of authors who take a straightforward and bullet-point approach to thinking and talking about clinical issues. If everyone who taught medical students were this well organized, medical care would be greatly enhanced because the thought process the authors espouse is critical to the understanding of all clinical problems. This book reflects what infectious disease clinicians do best: think about patients and formulate diagnoses and treatment plans."-Doody's Reviews
