Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Pamela A. Foral, PharmD, BCPS (Creighton University School of Pharmacy)
Description: Updated annually, this pocket-sized book presents a comprehensive approach to the selection of antimicrobials and treatment of infectious diseases.
Purpose: Experienced clinicians provide therapeutic recommendations for the treatment of infectious diseases based on clinical expertise, evidence-based literature, and clinical guidelines. This reference is concise and useful in the diagnosis, management, and pathogenesis of common infectious diseases. It also presents a practical approach to antimicrobials including antibiotic susceptibility profiles, pearls, and pitfalls.
Audience: It will be useful for clinicians or other healthcare professionals caring for patients with infectious diseases, as well as residents and students.
Features: The reference has a wide-ranging focus, from an overview of antimicrobial therapy considerations to empiric antimicrobial therapy based on various infections, including pediatric infections. Included are user friendly tables with antibiotic susceptibility profiles and initial therapy recommendation for specific organisms, including parasites, fungi, and unusual organisms. Other topics with extensive reviews are HIV infection, travel prophylaxis, adult immunizations, chest x-ray atlas, and differential diagnosis based on various physical or laboratory abnormalities. The brief, antimicrobial drug summaries may be used as an initial reference.
Assessment: This well-designed, compact, up-to-date reference is a valuable resource in the management of infectious diseases for healthcare professionals, residents, and students. This update is timely and necessary.
