This pocket-sized handbook should prove to be a valuable reference when controlling the development and spread of infectious disease in the laboratory, pharmacy, clinic and elsewhere. Written by an international team of experts under the auspices of the International Society of Infectious Diseases, the manual discusses, in highly condensed, practical chapters, all major considerations in avoiding infection in the health care setting. Five sections - fundamentals, environments, specific problems, procedures, special pathogens - logically cover the common concerns of physicians, nurses, technicians, and others in dealing with potentially infectious patients and equipment. The chapters provide information on disinfection, transfusions, food and water contamination, AIDS and tuberculosis, among the 40 topics covered.
