Product De******ion:

Today, there is considerable literature regarding the subject of antimicrobial resistance. However, most of this information is based on information from developed countries. Very little organized information is available about the subject that critically examines the problem in developing countries. Scattered literature is available in various forms in journals that are often not easily accessible to the affected developing countries.

The objective of the book is to put together data and information about the problem of antimicrobial resistance in developing countries addressing the general global perspectives, the risk factors, the current rates, trends, and possibilities for containment as they relate to specific conditions in those developing countries.

Product De******ion:

Sepsis is a very important public health problem. It is widely acknowledged that the severe inflammatory response syndrome/severe sepsis paradigm fails to stratify sepsis patients adequately. This book reviews in detail how sepsis should be managed on the basis of a novel approach to staging. The PIRO (predisposing factors, infection, response, organ dysfunction) model was first proposed at the start of the decade on a theoretical basis and has now been translated into a practical approach for use at the bedside. It is loosely based on the TNM staging system for cancers, with points being allocated to each of the four aforementioned key characteristics of the septic process. The proposed PIRO framework facilitates evaluation of factors that are important in the pathogenesis of severe sepsis and in the development of treatment strategies. This book clearly explains the advantages of the PIRO approach in different settings and will be of value to all practitioners concerned with the management of sepsis.

The volumes included in "Antimicrobial Drug Resistance" represent the first comprehensive, multidisciplinary reference covering the area of antimicrobial drug resistance in bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites from basic science, clinical, and epidemiological perspectives. The first volume, "Antimicrobial Drug Resistance, Mechanisms of Drug Resistance", is dedicated to the biological basis of drug resistance and effective avenues for drug development. With the emergence of more drug-resistant strains, the approach to dealing with the drug resistance problem must include the research of different aspects of the mechanisms of bacterial resistance and the dissemination of resistance genes as well as research utilizing new genomic information. These approaches will permit the design of novel strategies to develop new antibiotics and preserve the effectiveness of currently available ones.

This second volume, "Antimicrobial Drug Resistance, Clinical and Epidemiological Aspects", is devoted to the clinical aspects of drug resistance. Although there is evidence that restricted use of a specific antibiotic can be followed by a decrease in drug resistance to that agent, drug resistance control is not easily achieved. Thus, the infectious disease physician requires input from the clinical microbiologist and infection control specialist to make informed choices for the effective treatment of various strains of drug-resistant pathogens in individual patients.

Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Heat Shock Proteins in Infectious Disease

Product De******ion:

Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Heat Shock Proteins in Infectious Disease provides the most current review of the literature relating to the role and influence of heat shock (stress) proteins on the establishment, progression and resolution of infectious disease. Written by leaders in the field of heat shock proteins (HSP) and their biological and immunological properties, the contributors provide a fascinating insight into the complex relationship between, and the involvement of prokaryotic and eukaryotic HSP in disease states. It has been known for some considerable time that heat shock proteins from prokaryotic organisms are immunodominant molecules that are intimately involved in the induction of potential protective inflammatory responses, and this aspect of HSP biology is updated herein. In addition to regulating heat shock protein gene expression, the tran******ion factor HSF1 also appears to play an important role in regulating immune responses to infection. Heat shock proteins are now known to influence infectious disease processes in a number of diverse ways: they are involved in the propagation of prions, the replication and morphogenesis of viruses, and the resistance of parasites to chemotherapy. These proteins also appear to be important mediators of bacteria-host interactions and inflammation, the latter via interactions with cell surface molecules and structures such as Toll-like receptors and lipid rafts. Heat shock proteins can be expressed on the surface of infected cells, and this is likely to provide a target for the innate immune response. Elevated levels of circulating HSP are present in infectious diseases and these proteins might therefore regulate inflammatory responses to pathogenic challenge on a systemic basis. Heat shock proteins are also implicated in the impact of genital tract infections on the reproductive outcome, as well as in the local and systemic consequences of periodontal disease. Fever-range temperatures can induce the expression of heat shock proteins, and the final chapter in the book examines the influence of fever-range hyperthermia on a variety of cells and the organization of plasma membranes. This book is an essential read for graduates and postgraduates in Biology, pro- and eukaryotic Biochemistry, Immunology, Microbiology, Inflammatory and Infectious Disease, and Pathology.

Plague is a very old disease that will likely always be present. In many parts of the world, plague is endemicit is present to some degree all the time. Unlike smallpox, scientists do not believe that plague can be eradicated, or completely eliminated from existence, because it lives in the bodies of millions of animals and in the fleas that spread it in many parts of the world.

Until the middle of the 20th century, polio affected people all over the world. The disease, caused by a virus in the genus Enterovirus, often left its survivors with weakened muscles or varying degrees of paralysis. In their later years, many once-healthy survivors experienced a condition known as post-polio syndrome. Once effective vaccines were developed, polio was eradicated in the United States and other countries, although it still remains a threat in many developing areas. This revised edition of "Polio" contains new illustrations and updated coverage of all aspects of this disease, including the latest vaccination information, world outbreak and immunization statistics, and a progress report on international efforts to eradicate polio.The chapters include: The History of Polio; The Transmission of Polio and How It Affects the Body;Vaccines and How They Work; Just When We Thought It Was Safe: Post-Polio SyndromeWhat Lies Ahead? And, The Future of Polio

De******ion: Because aging is accompanied by a steady decline in resistance to infectious diseases, the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases in the elderly is not only much more complex, but also often quite different from that for younger patients. In the second edition of "Infectious Disease in the Aging: A Clinical Handbook", a panel of well known and highly experienced geriatric physicians and infectious disease experts review the most important common infections affecting the elderly and delineate their well-proven diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive techniques. Among the illnesses discussed are urinary tract infections, pneumonia, ocular infections, tuberculosis, and fungal and viral infections. In addition, there are detailed discussions of sepsis, infective endocarditis, intraabdominal infections, bacterial meningitis, osteomyelitis and septic arthritis, and prosthetic device infections.

The immune deficiency AIDS leads to a drastic increase in susceptibility to Tuberculosis. Accordingly, co-infections of tuberculosis (TB) and AIDS have increased dramatically over the last decades and have already killed more than 5 million people worldwide. Currently, no vaccines are available for either of these diseases leaving doctors with limited options for prevention. This perfect storm of pandemics is analysed and explained for the first time in this groundbreaking title, edited by two of the most accomplished experts in this area, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Stefan Kaufmann at the Max-Planck Institute for infectious diseases in Berlin and Prof. Dr. Bruce Walker, director of the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard in Boston.
Co-infection of AIDS and TB occur frequently in the most impoverished regions of the world and the AIDS pandemic which has spread rapidly across Africa over the past two decades is now being met by a TB pandemic.
While TB can be cured and AIDS can be treated, co-infection in a single patient presents unique challenges and the rapid expansion of these two pandemics has resulted in a critical need to better understand the interactions between the two pathogens and to integrate research efforts.
This title brings together scientists from the forefront of research to explore and combine state-of-the-art studies in drug interactions and disease therapies, providing the latest information about prevention, therapy and diagnosis of both tuberculosis and AIDS.
This is the only book to place a clear emphasis on the increasing number of patients suffering from both tuberculosis and AIDS and is unique in combining expertise from both fields. Using a multi-disciplinary approach the authors bring together the issues surrounding treatment of co-infection by highlighting the problems of treatment overlap and providing new data demonstrating exactly how this deadly liaison plays out.
Early chapters focus on immunology and the problems facing vaccination strategies for both diseases. Currently no vaccines exist for either disease and the coexistence of both pathogens in a single patient complicates the research for new preventive, diagnostic or therapeutic approaches.
Later chapters deal with some of the most threatening consequences of this co-infection, such as the emergence of drug resistant TB. These chapters also deal with the need to simultaneously treat both infections, highlighting the major problem of drug interaction if two treatments which have been researched in isolation are given to one individual.
Together the contributing authors offer a *******ingly new and engaging analysis of this most challenging of topics and offer new therapeutic approaches by providing comprehensive understanding of both diseases.
This title is of strong interest to a broad range of research communities, from microbiologists and virologists to immunologists and medical doctors specializing in TB and AIDS treatment as well as to the pharmaceutical and biotechnological Industries.
Aids and Tuberculosis: A Deadly Liaison is the first title in Wiley-Blackwell's new 'Infection Biology Series'. The second title in the series will be Bacterial Virulence: Basic Principles, Models and Global Approaches, edited by Philippe Sansonetti from the Pasteur Institute in Paris. It is due for publication in spring 2010.

Product De******ion:

Sepsis is a serious medical condition, resulting from the immune response to a severe infection. Septicaemia is sepsis of the bloodstream caused by bactemeria, which is the presence of bacteria in the bloodstream. The term septecaemia is also used to refer to sepsis in general. In the US, sepsis is the leading cause of death in non-coronary ICU patients, and the tenth most common form of death overall. Sepsis is common and also more dangerous in the elderly, immunocompromised, and critically ill patients. It occurs in 1-2% of all hospitilizations and accounts for as much as 25% of all ICU bed utilization. It is a major cause of death in intensive care units worldwide, with mortality rates that range from 20% for sepsis to 40% for severe sepsis to more than 60% for septic shock. The book brings together a group of experts to consider how the various pathways implicated in early and late sepsis interact. It addresses the frequent, but under-recognised condition of sepsis and discusses new ways to prevent and treat it. It describes numerous pharmocological approaches to therapy for early and late sepsis. It includes detailed discussion of the various physiological systems implicated in sepsis. This is an invaluable resource for all critical care physicians and researchers. It is also informative reading for immunologists, endocrinologists, neuroendocrinologists, phsysiologists and pharmacologists
Drawing on multi-professional editors and authors brings in the variety of perspectives and knowledge seen within the critical care team to produce a **** that is both inclusive of and targeted to the individual needs of its intended audience. The nature of the material, written and edited by experienced practitioners in the field will provide an invaluable source of reference and training material for specialists and those already trained in their field.

Publication Date: 2009-09-11
ISBN-10 / ASIN: 0853697531
ISBN-13 / EAN: 9780853697534

Product De******ion:

This is an introductory guide to the prevalence and treatment of zoonoses; infections transmitted to humans from vertebrate animals. Zoonoses are diseases and infections that are transmitted between vertebrate animals and humans. Infections can be inconvenient or life-threatening and may be transmitted by companion animals, agricultural animals, or by foods. Since contact with animals is commonplace all health care professionals should have an understanding of the importance, diagnosis and treatment of zoonotic infections. In recent years, since the publication of the first edition of "Zoonoses", there has been a much greater awareness of the dangers that food borne diseases such as E.Coli, BSE, etc. can pose to human health as a result of poor agricultural, hygiene or regulatory practices. In addition, the transmission of animal borne respiratory viruses such as avian (bird) flu and SARS are now recognized as significant hazards to human health with the potential to cause global pandemics. Zoonotic infections have also been recognized as biological warfare agents (e.g. anthrax) and have the potential to be used, or have been used in reality, in terrorist attacks. Since 2002, there has been a considerably increased awareness of zoonoses amongst health care professionals, governments and the public. There is also considerably more scientific understanding of these infections and their treatment. The new edition of this book is therefore very timely. In many respects the first edition of "Zoonoses" could be considered ahead of its time although it is now somewhat dated. This new edition contains completely revised and updated **** highlighting the most significant recent threats to human health such as avian flu.

Product De******ion:

A riveting account of why science alone can't stop the next pandemic

When avian flu began spreading across Asia in the early-2000s, it reawakened fears that had lain dormant for nearly a century. During the outbreak's deadliest years, Alan Sipress chased the virus as it infiltrated remote jungle villages and teeming cities and saw its mysteries elude the world's top scientists. In The Fatal Strain, Sipress details how socioeconomic and political realities in Asia make it the perfect petri dish in which the fast-mutating strain can become easily communicable among humans. Once it does, the ease and speed of international travel and worldwide economic interdependence could make it as destructive as the flu pandemic of 1918.

In his vivid portrayal of the struggle between man and microbe, Sipress gives a front-line view of the accelerating number of near misses across Asia and the terrifying truth that the prospects for this impending health crisis may well be in the hands of cockfighters, live chicken merchants, and witch doctors rather than virologists or the World Health Organization.

Like The Hot Zone and The Great Influenza, The Fatal Strain is a fast-moving account that brings the inevitability of an epidemic into a fascinating cultural, scientific, and political narrative.

Infectious disease ranks only behind trauma in the prevalence of cases seen on a daily basis in the emergency room and takes lives from every culture and socioeconomic class. The changing epidemiology of infectious diseases is a considerable challenge to any physician, as acute, nearly eradicated, and tropical diseases now enter American emergency rooms on a daily basis. This book is a new clinically oriented reference book for the management of such infections in the emergency room and focuses on all diagnostic protocols and treatment strategies that emergency room physicians need to be proficient when managing patients battling infectious disease. The orientation of the book is uniquely organ-based, with coverage of all viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic disease. The narrative is supplemented with explanatory photos, diagnostic tables, and charts of drug regimens and will prove an invaluable reference for physicians confronting the various manifestations of infectious disease.

Binding: Paperback
Book De******ion:

Genitourinary medicine (GUM) is an expanding specialty which is primarily related to the treatment and prevention of ***ually transmitted infections (STIs). A number of GUM departments also offer other ***ual health services such as contraception, ***ual dysfunction and health promotion. Services are provided by multidisciplinary teams which include doctors, nurses, health advisers (who carry out partner notification and counselling), receptionists, laboratory staff and secretarial support. 'The Oxford Handbook of Genitourinary Medicine HIV and AIDS' provides evidence-based, practical information on the specialty, covering medico-legal, ethical, and procedural issues. The first section deals with routine management, special situations and clinical and laboratory processes. The second section covers genitourinary conditions in a disease-orientated style, including ***ually transmitted diseases and other genitourinary problems. The third section on HIV provides a contemporary epidemiological overview of this infection, basic viral biology and pathogenesis, a disease-orientated de******ion of conditions both directly related and opportunistic, and their management, and data on special situations such as pregnancy. Aimed primarily at specialist doctors, trainees and nurses in genitourinary medicine and infectious diseases, the book also appeals to general practitioners and interested medical students.

Binding: Hardcover

Social Ecology of Infectious Diseases explores how human activities enable microbes to disseminate and evolve, thereby creating favorable conditions for the diverse manifestations of communicable diseases. Today, infectious and parasitic diseases cause about one-third of deaths and are the second leading cause of morbidity and mortality. The speed that changes in human behavior can produce epidemics is well illustrated by AIDS, but this is only one of numerous microbial threats whose severity and spread are determined by human behaviors. In this book, forty experts in the fields of infectious diseases, the life sciences and public health explore how demography, geography, migration, travel, environmental change, natural disaster, ***ual behavior, drug use, food production and distribution, medical technology, training and preparedness, as well as governance, human conflict and social dislocation influence current and likely future epidemics.
* Provides essential understanding of current and future epidemics
* Presents a crossover perspective for disciplines in the medical and social sciences and public policy, including public health, infectious diseases, population science, epidemiology, microbiology, food safety, defense preparedness and humanitarian relief
* Creates a new perspective on ecology based on the interaction of microbes and human activities

Product De******ion: In the past 25 years, more than 30 new human germs have emerged onto the medical scene, most of these rising from animals. And with these germs come new diseases like the avian flu, Ebola, SARS, and weaponized viruses such as anthrax and smallpox, which pose a growing threat to the world. With the rising number of deaths due to infectious diseases, it is essential to have clear and concise information on this topic. With more than 600 entries, "The Encyclopedia of Infectious Diseases, Third Edition" provides up-to-date information on this expanding field, including the latest research, new treatments and vaccines, and rising diseases such as mad cow disease. Appendixes include drugs used to treat infectious diseases, tips for home disinfection, and lists of helpful organizations and publications, making this the ultimate resource for knowledge about infectious diseases. Topics include: Animals and infectious diseases; Food safety and natural disasters; Influenza; Lung and respiratory infections; Neonatal infections; Parasitic infections; Stomach and intestinal infections; Terrorist-related infectious diseases; Treatments and diagnosis; and Vaccines and immunizations.Summary: Very good!Rating: 5This is almost a one-of-a-kind book (encyclopedia of infectious diseases aimed at the proverbial 'intelligent layman'), and is surprisingly hard to find on the retail market. Each disease entry has an introduction followed by sections on symptoms and diagnostic path, treatment options and outlook, and risk factors and preventive measures. There are useful discussions of various categories of infectious diseases, e.g. food-borne infections, and infectious agents, e.g. Escherichia coli O157:H7. Appendix I covers drugs used to treat infectious diseases, Appendix II covers home disinfection, and Appendix III is a somewhat spotty collection of contact information of organizations that have something to do with one or more infectious diseases. There is a bibliography and an index. All things considered, this is the best book of its type I have seen. I will be using it as a ****book for my Biology of Infectious Disease course, which is intended for nonscience majors. Highly recommended.Summary: This is a fun book for my 14 year old. Rating: 5My daughter really enjoyed receiving this book. She uses it all the time for basic information. Summary: These are more than just definitionsRating: 5This third updated edition of Encyclopedia of Infectious Diseases is recommended both for college-level health libraries and for any public lending library where health is a strong part of the reference collection. Over 30 new germs affecting human health has emerged in recent decades, making this update necessary: over 600 entries provides the latest information, from new treatments and research to rising disease threats. These are more than just definitions: discussions include risk factors, outlook, diagnostics, and the latest treatment options. Diane C. Donovan California BookwatchSummary: Should be in every HomeRating: 5Easy to understand then other similar books. Informative for the lay person in regard to todays common illnesses and prevention ie, Lyme disease, food borne illnesses, childhood diseases

Product De******ion:

Environmental mycobacteria can be found in diverse environments around the world and most appear to exhibit a saprophytic lifestyle. However, some have the ability to infect animals, birds and humans, and have evolved mechanisms by which they can invade and grow within host cells: the pathogenic environmental mycobacteria (PEM). Although the diseases caused by these organisms have been known for many years, it is only recently that the potential significance of PEM as a waterborne pathogen has been appreciated.

Pathogenic Mycobacteria in Water describes the current knowledge of the distribution of PEM in water and other parts of the environment. The routes of transmission that lead to human infection are discussed and there is a detailed analysis of the most significant disease symptoms that can follow infection. Many species of PEM are difficult to isolate in culture and so detection and identification rely upon the use modern techniques such as those based on selective nucleic acid amplification (PCR). The classical and modern methods of analysis are described. The book concludes with a discussion of the issues surrounding the control of PEM in drinking water and the assessment and management of risks.

Vaccines for Pandemic Influenza

http://pixhost.ws/avaxhome/3c/a5/000fa53c_medium.jpeg (http://pixhost.ws/pictures/1025340)

Richard W. Compans, Walter A. Orenstein, "Vaccines for Pandemic Influenza"
Springer | 2009 | ISBN: 3540921648 | 512 pages | PDF | 4,2 MB

The recent outbreak of disease caused by a novel H1N1 virus has focused global attention on the threat of a new influenza pandemic. Recent years have also seen unprecedented outbreaks of avian influenza A viruses. In particular, highly pathogenic H5N1 viruses have not only resulted in widespread outbreaks in domestic poultry, but have been transmitted to humans resulting in numerous fatalities. The rapid expansion in the geographic distribution of these novel viruses raises the risk that such a virus could cause a global pandemic with high morbidity and mortality.

An effective influenza vaccine represents the best approach to prevent and control such an emerging pandemic. However, current influenza vaccines are directed at existing seasonal influenza viruses, which have limited antigenic relationships to the newly emerging virus strains.

Concerns about pandemic preparedness have greatly stimulated research activities to develop effective vaccines for pandemic influenza viruses, and to overcome the limitations inherent in current approaches to vaccine production and distribution. These limitations include the use of embryonated chicken eggs as the substrate for vaccine production; which is time-consuming and could involve potential biohazards in growth of new virus strains

Lyme Borreliosis: Biological and Clinical Aspects
Publisher: S. Karger AG | Language: English | ISBN:3805591144 | 212 pages | Data: 2009 | PDF | 4 Mb

De******ion: Lyme disease, so called since Steere et al. [1, 2] inquired into an arthritis epidemic
among young children in the community of Old Lyme, Conn., USA, in the late 1970s,
has a very long European history. Its cutaneous manifestations, the most frequent
signs of the disease, had already been described at the end of the 19th century and the
beginning of the 20th century by physicians like Buchwald, Pick, Herxheimer, Hartman,
Afzelius and Lipschutz [35] . Additionally, two French physicians in a landmark
paper published in 1922, Garin and Bujadoux [6] , reported a patient who developed
erythema chronicum migrans followed by painful meningoradiculitis. Shortly
before the symptoms began, this patient was bitten by a tick and he had a positive
Bordet-Wasserman test, which was used at this time to diagnose syphilis. They stated,
however, that although this test was positive, this patient did not have syphilis, and
concluded that this patient had a tick-borne disease that induced cutaneous and neurological
manifestations caused by a spirochete different from Treponema pallidum .
It was not until the early 1980s that their prediction proved to be correct, when Burgdorfer
et al. [7] were able to isolate a bacterium belonging to the family of Spirochaetaceae,
first from ticks and then from humans. Interestingly, the first North American
observation of Lyme disease, a patient with erythema migrans, was only published
in 1970 [8]

With the mosquito as its vector, malaria has troubled humans throughout history. While kept under control in most of the developed world, it continues to ravage parts of Africa and Asia, where the majority of cases occur, and where the simple means of protection from the disease are out of reach for the much of the population. Caused by protozoan parasites from the genus Plasmodium, malaria is a chronic disease, plaguing sufferers for many years. This revised edition of "Malaria" contains new illustrations and up-to-date information on this largely preventable disease, including the latest outbreak statistics, recent diagnostic and treatment breakthroughs, the findings of recent vaccine trials, and an examination of the impact global climate change may have on malaria outbreak patterns. Chapters of this title include: On the Wings of Mosquitoes; The Origin, Evolution, and Ecology of Malaria; The Discovery of Plasmodium; Attempts at Malarial Control; Preventing Malaria; and, Malaria Now.

Tuberculosis Control in the Western Pacific Region, 2008 Report

The status of the tuberculosis (TB) epidemic and progress in control of the disease has been assessed annually since 1997. This report presents an overview of progress in reducing the burden of TB in the Western Pacific Region (the Region) using data on disease burden and case notification in 2006 and treatment outcomes for patients registered in 2005. The data were collected from 35 countries and areas in the Region using the WHO standard form for reporting surveillance data. The report contains data trends on estimated TB prevalence and mortality, TB notifications by age group and ***, TB-HIV co-infection and other indicators of progress, including treatment outcomes and laboratory capacity and quality. This report presents data on multidrug resistant-TB from various drug resistance surveys from the countries and areas in the Region. This year's TB Control Report provides more in-depth analysis of trends on TB epidemiology and progress on the implementation of the components of the Regional Strategic Plan for 2006-2010 and Stop TB Strategy. The specific country profiles contained in the report of countries with high burden and intermediate burden of TB and the Pacific provide country-specific information on progress of TB control.

Book De******ion:

The influence of many drugs of abuse licit and illicit on immune function has been examined extensively in recent years. Many such substances, including marijuana, cocaine, morphine, and nicotine, have been shown to enhance the disease process by impairing immunologic function. Use of these drugs impairs immunologic functions by suppressing antibody function, decreasing cytokine production, enhancing production and release of IL1, and suppressing IL2 and interferon. Among the viruses known to be effected by these drugs are viruses such as herpes simplex virus and murine retrovirus and bacterial agents such as Staphylococcus, Listeria, Treponema, and Legionella.

This volume, part of the Infectious Agents and Pathogenesis series, examines a variety of drugs of abuse and how they affect the immune system.

One of the deadliest diseases healthcare workers fight today, tuberculosis (often called TB) infects the lungs of one-third of the world's population and kills about 2 million people a year. While scientific breakthroughs brought this bacterial disease under control during the 1960s to the 1980s, it was never completely eliminated. In the early 1990s, TB came back as a serious global threat. Not only has TB now spread to virtually every country on Earth, new strains of TB--which are resistant to the standard antibiotics used to cure it--have appeared. Learn what causes TB, how it spreads, why it is so difficult to treat, and more in this informative volume.

The study of infectious diseases has undergone major changes since its infancy when it was largely a ********ation of epidemics. It has now evolved into a dynamic phenomenon involving the ecology of the infectious agent, pathogenesis in the host, reservoirs and vetors, as well as the complex mechanisms concerned in the spread of infection and the extent to which this spread occurs. Rapid globalization has led to unprecedented interest in infectious diseases worldwide and their effect on complex population dynamics including migration, famine, fire, war, and terrorism. It is now essential for public health officials to understand the basic science behind infectious disease and, likewise, students studying ID must have a broader understanding of the implications of infectious disease in a public health con**** as well as clinical presentation and prevention. The clear demand for an integrated approach has led to the publication of this ****.

Emergency Management of Infectious Diseases
Publisher:Cambridge University Press | Language: English | ISBN:0521871763 | 600 pages | Data: 2008 | PDF | 9 Mb

De******ion:Infectious disease ranks only behind trauma in the prevalence of cases seen on a daily basis in the emergency room and takes lives from every culture and socioeconomic class. The changing epidemiology of infectious diseases is a considerable challenge to any physician, as acute, nearly eradicated, and tropical diseases now enter American emergency rooms on a daily basis. This book is a new clinically oriented reference book for the management of such infections in the emergency room and focuses on all diagnostic protocols and treatment strategies that emergency room physicians need to be proficient when managing patients battling infectious disease. The orientation of the book is uniquely organ-based, with coverage of all viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic disease. The narrative is supplemented with explanatory photos, diagnostic tables, and charts of drug regimens and will prove an invaluable reference for physicians confronting the various manifestations of infectious disease.
