More About This Textbook

Overview

Over five million workers in health care related fields are at risk to exposure to bloodborne pathogens, such as the HIV virus and hepatitis B virus. Designed to meet the current OSHA training requirements, Bloodborne and Airborne Pathogens, Sixth Edition was designed to teach students how to prepare for potential occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials. The Sixth Edition also includes supplemental information on airborne pathogens, such as tuberculosis, and other unusual infectious diseases.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Valerie L. Ng, PhD MD(Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
Description: This is the sixth edition of this manual on bloodborne and airborne pathogens. The previous edition was published in 2008.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide training and certification for job-related requirements defined by regulatory authorities (e.g., OSHA, Joint Commission, state offices of emergency medical services, education, transportation and health). These worthy objectives are partially met by this book.
Audience: The book was produced by the Emergency Care & Safety Institute in partnership with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), but it is not obvious for whom it is intended. From my perspective, it would be most useful to allied healthcare providers or those with minimal medical training (e.g., first responders, fire fighters, lay public).
Features: Many of the 52 pages in this slim paperback are filled with pictures or call-out text boxes. It skims the surface of this subject and is comparable to reading a "Cliff's Notes" version of a biosafety manual. It is much too superficial to meet the needs of bloodborne and pathogen training for laboratory staff. In fact, a single focused chapter in many of the laboratory-focused bloodborne and airborne pathogen books exceed the length, depth, and breadth of this entire book.
Assessment: This book is not useful to the laboratory medicine community because its treatment of these very substantial laboratory risks is much too superficial.
