This clinically-oriented text focuses on the diagnostic protocols and treatment strategies with which physicians must be familiar when managing infectious disease patients. Informative algorithms, tables, and high-quality color photographs supplement many of the chapters in this conveniently-sized volume. The orientation of the volume is multi-faceted: in addition to the traditional organization of organ system and pathogen-related information, this text includes specific sections on the susceptible host (with individual chapters on the diabetic, the elderly, the injection drug user, and the neonate), travel-related infections, nosocomial infections, infections related to surgery and trauma, and bioterrorism. Informative algorithms, tables, and high-quality color photographs supplement many of the chapters. The convenient size of this book places it between the available encyclopedic tomes and the small pocket guides, making it a comprehensive but user-friendly and practical reference for the practising clinician.
