Evidence-based Pediatric Infectious Diseases is a practical guide to the diagnosis and management of childhood infections in clinical practice.
Based around illustrative case studies, each chapter presents and analyzes current evidence on the management of different pediatric infections and provides firm treatment recommendations based on evidence of:
* efficacy and safety
* antibiotic resistance
* adverse effects
* ethical considerations
This book uses a case-based approach that focuses on the most common disease areas affecting children in industrialized countries, developing countries, travelers and refugees. It is an up-to-date, relevant and widely applicable text that carefully examines the evidence for antibiotics and other interventions whilst encouraging a conservative and responsible approach to antibiotic use.
