Findings from the field of evolutionary biology are yielding dramatic insights for health scientists, especially those involved in the fight against infectious diseases. This book is the first in-depth presentation of these insights. In detailing why the pathogens that cause malaria, smallpox, tuberculosis, and AIDS have their special kinds of deadliness, the book shows how efforts to control virtually all diseases would benefit from a more thorough application of evolutionary principles. When viewed from a Darwinian perspective, a pathogen is not simply a disease-causing agent, it is a self-replicating organism driven by evolutionary pressures to pass on as many copies of itself as possible. In this context, so-called "cultural vectors"--those aspects of human behavior and the human environment that allow spread of disease from immobilized people--become more important than ever. Interventions to control diseases don't simply hinder their spread but can cause pathogens and the diseases they engender to evolve into more benign forms. In fact, the union of health science with evolutionary biology offers an entirely new dimension to policy making, as the possibility of determining the future course of many diseases becomes a reality. By presenting the first detailed explanation of an evolutionary perspective on infectious disease, the author has achieved a genuine milestone in the synthesis of health science, epidemiology, and evolutionary biology. Written in a clear, accessible style, it is intended for a wide readership among professionals in these fields and general readers interested in science and health.
The second edition of this concise and practical guide describes infections in geographical areas and provides information on disease risk, concomitant infections (such as co-prevalence of HIV and tuberculosis) and emerging bacterial, viral and parasitic infections in a given geographical area of the world. Geographic approach means that itï¿½s the only book to guide the health care worker towards a diagnosis based on the location of symptoms and travel history by encouraging the question ï¿½where have you been?ï¿½ New content covering MERS, Ebola, Zika, and infections transmitted during air and maritime travel Covers the major infectious disease outbreaks framed in their geographic setting such asï¿½ H7N9 ï¿½bird fluï¿½ influenza, H1N1, Ebola, and Zika Outstanding international editor team with vast experience on various international infectious disease and as journal editors and key leaders in infection surveillance
The third edition of this best-selling resource from the American Academy of Pediatrics aids in the diagnosis and treatment of more than 100 infectious diseases. Streamline disease recognition and clinical decision-making with more than 1,200 finely detailed color images. Three new chapters cover fungal diseases, hemorrhagic fevers (filoviruses), and trichuriasis. Concise text descriptions steps through diagnosis, evaluation and management essentials for each condition. Essential information on each condition is presented in the precise sequence needed in the clinical setting:Clinical manifestationsEpidemiologyDiagnostic testsEtiologyIncubation periodTreatment
Infectious diseases have plagued man throughout history. In the era of modern medicine antibiotics and vaccines brought the hope of liberation from the great scourges of smallpox, polio, and tuberculosis. Yet, in the ensuing decades as we hoped to close the book on infectious diseases, we have instead been confronted by wave upon wave of new assailants. AIDS, SARS, pandemic influenza, and multi-drug resistant bacteria demonstrated how our technological advances have either fallen short in halting or even enhanced the spread of emerging pathogens. International air travel has collapsed geographic boundaries that once confined tropical infections to distant latitudes. Novel forms of immunosuppression, advances in organ transplantation, and victories in the cancer wars have led to an ever-expanding population at risk for opportunistic infections. In this collection of illustrated cases we give a cross-sectional view of the growing challenges that face the infectious diseases consultant. The modern physician is empowered by high resolution imaging and molecular diagnostic techniques that confer diagnostic capabilities Osler could have only dreamed of. Nevertheless we continue to grapple with the timeless struggles illuminated by Pasteur, Koch, and Fleming between man and the microscopic organisms of the world.Part of the new Oxford American Infectious Disease Library series, this book of illustrative cases will appeal to anyone working in a busy infectious diseases consultation service or practice including students, residents, fellows, faculty and other ID practitioners. Featuring numerous high-quality images and illustrations guiding diagnosis and case discussion, the handbook is meant to serve as a highly practical guide covering current approaches and new developments in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of a cross section of infectious diseases, including community-acquired and healthcare-associated infections.
Infectious disease (ID) is a constant concern for pharmacy clinicians, with far too few specialists to meet the demand. That means that while more and more pharmacists are seeking the added qualification in infectious disease along with other Board Certifications, many clinical pharmacists have to meet a higher standard as de facto ID specialists. Further, treatment of infectious disease involves a good deal of grey area, which means that even the experts need a way to verify their mastery Now, Infectious Disease Pharmacotherapy Self Assessment, by Lea Eiland and Diane Ginsburg, bring you thorough and relevant cases where questions are delivered with varying degrees of difficulty, allowing you to truly gauge your level of understanding of complex ID pharmacotherapy problems. Three levels of difficulty offers users a way to assess their mastery of ID topics.
