The Washington Manual Infectious Diseases Subspecialty Consult
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005 - Medical - 352 pages
Prepared by residents and fellows at the Washington University School of Medicine, this handbook covers the full spectrum of infectious disease problems with the same front-lines practicality as the world-famous Washington ManualŪ of Medical Therapeutics. This consult manual offers clinicians valuable assistance in determining what infections the patient is at risk for, where and how (s)he acquired the infection, how to evaluate and manage the patient, and what complications to expect.
Chapters on infections of each organ system begin with an approach to that organ system. Other topics covered include bioterrorism, sexually transmitted diseases, brucellosis, systemic mycoses, immunizations, and antimicrobials.
This handbook is also available electronically for handheld computers. See PDA listing for details.
