LEARN THE PRINCIPLES OF CLINICAL INFECTIOUS DISEASESIN JUST THIRTY DAYSA Doody's Core Title for 2017!Infectious Diseases: A Clinical Short COURSE is a concise overview of this important field designed to help the busy physician, medical student, nurse practitioner, and physician assistant to understand, diagnose, and treat common infectious diseases. This unique self-instruction book is organized by system/region as opposed to pathogens―simulating how common pathogens anddisorders would be encountered in rounds or in practice.By indicating the number of days that should be allotted to the study of each chapter, the author has created a schedule for completion of each lesson. A wide array of tables that summarize the methods of clinical assessment, anti-infective agent doses, and drug toxicities--facts that do not require memorization, but do need to be referred to when caring for patients--facilitate this condensed learning schedule. There is no better resource for learning to associate pathogens with the corresponding impact on patients than Infectious Diseases.FEATURESKey Points summarize the most important facts when managing each infection and facilitate board reviewGuiding Questions begin each chapterAn estimate of the potential severity of each disease gives you a sense of how quickly you should initiate treatmentNumerous case examples highlight real-world clinical application of the contentDozens of color plates depict major pathogensAll chapters have been updated to reflect the most current treatment and diagnostic guidelines from the Infectious Diseases Society of AmericaNEW! Antibiograms for each major antibiotic class provide a visual depiction of the spectrum of each individual antibiotic; a table listing the most commonly used outpatient antibiotics and their dosing; and much more
"This book focuses on key points of basic microbiology and antimicrobial pharmacotherapy and organizes them into a concise guide … must-have antimicrobial reference guide for all medical and pharmacy students." - Lindsay McDonnell, PharmD for Doody's Review ServiceAntibiotics Simplified, Fourth Edition is a best-selling, succinct guide designed to bridge knowledge gained in basic sciences courses with clinical practice in infectious diseases. This practical text reviews basic microbiology and how to approach the pharmacotherapy of a patient with a presumed infection.
