Description: This comprehensive reference provides current recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of common infectious diseases. It is an update from the 2010 edition.
Purpose: Experienced clinicians provide evidence-based and experience-based recommendations for diagnosis, pathogens, management, anti-infectives, and vaccines for common infectious diseases. The reference is concise and is useful as a point-of-care reference.
Audience: The focused, current content is useful to clinicians or other healthcare professionals caring for patients with infectious diseases. The standardized format of the sections makes pertinent information readily accessible.
Features: The diagnosis section is concise, bulleted statements on pathogens, clinical, treatment recommendations, follow-up, and other helpful information. The pathogen section covers microbiology, clinical, sites of infection, and treatment recommendations, among other topics. The drug section contains pertinent medication information including cost, dosing (including adjustments for renal, hepatic, obesity), and comments based on expert recommendations. The vaccines section incorporates indications, dosing, and other helpful information. Valuable appendixes include therapeutic tables with duration of antibiotic therapy, pathogen classification, antibiotic sensitivity, and drug-to-drug interaction tables.
