Evidence-based Pediatric Infectious Diseases is a practical guide to the diagnosis and management of childhood infections in clinical practice. Renowned Clinical Professor of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, David Isaacs, and an expert consultant editor team, bring you the first book to critically look at the evidence for decision making in pediatric infections. Based around illustrative case studies, each chapter presents and analyzes current evidence on the management of different pediatric infections and provides firm treatment recommendations based on evidence of:
• efficacy and safety
• antibiotic resistance
• adverse effects
• ethical considerations. Clear summaries and specific guidance allow you to assess the evidence for yourself and make rapid but informed management decisions based on the strength of evidence available. Antibiotic doses are presented clearly and simply, enabling you to select appropriate treatment at a glance. This book uses a case-based approach that focuses on the most common disease areas affecting children in industrialized countries, developing countries, travelers and refugees. It is an up-to-date, relevant and widely applicable text that carefully examines the evidence for antibiotics and other interventions whilst encouraging a conservative and responsible approach to antibiotic use. Evidence-based Pediatric Infectious Diseases is an indispensable resource for any practitioner who strives to provide the best evidence-based care for childhood infections.
