In the past, many tropical and parasitic infections were confined to tropical areas of the world located between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. However, with the increase in air travel and tourism and the changing patterns of immigration, an increasing number of individuals are coming into contact with these infectious agents and transmission across the world has been enhanced.

Tropical and Parasitic Infections in the Intensive Care Unit provides an international perspective on this topic and an overview of those infections that may cause critical illness.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the ninth volume in a series of monographs on infectious disease considerations in critical care.
Purpose: An overview is provided from a multinational perspective on tropical bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic infections in the critical care unit.
Audience: Staff practitioners and senior house officers are an appropriate audience for this work, which comes from noted editors in North America and South Africa.
Features: The book is divided into South African and North American perspectives on a variety of problems including malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, parasitic and fungal infections. The 12 chapters are cleanly written with occasional tables. Each chapter contains a reference list dating to within two years of publication. Citations represent original rather than secondary sources. A succinct table of contents provides chapter title, authorship and whether the perspective comes from South Africa or North America. A subject index of less than 10 pages, clearly adequate to describe content of the monograph, concludes.
Assessment: This is an effective, focused review for the critical care practitioner. Typical textbooks may not contain the concise and clear presentations contained here. Despite minor editorial inconsistencies such as reference presentation, this is a good quick read, particularly for the medical intensive care unit.
