Infection Control in the Immunocompromised Hostby Mattias Schrappe (Editor), Harald Seifert
Infection control is one of the major challenges of medicine in the future. The management of infectious diseases adds a substantial burden to the overall health care cost worldwide. Therefore, the prevention of infection is important, especially in view of the increasing number of patients with impaired host defenses due to serious underlying diseases like cancer and HIV infection, who are prone to a multitude of opportunistic infections. In developing countries, even more people are at risk of infectious diseases, and resoures are limited.
This book covers important aspects of infection control in patients with hematologic disorders, with HIV infection and in patients in developing countries.
