Description

Designed to provide quick access to standards of care for infectious disease by focusing on selection, proper doses, costs, and side effects of antimicrobial agents, the 2005-2006 Pocket Book of Infectious Disease Therapy draws extensively from recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Medical Letter on Drugs and Therapeutics, and from official statements of respected medical societies. Tabular material has been updated to include all newly approved antibiotics, as well as new recommendations for management.

This edition includes topical issues such as MRSA (USA 300 strain), Avian influenza, Acinetobacter Hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and bioterrorism. It also contains the new guidelines for pyogenic meningitis, diabetic foot infections, healthcare associated pneumonia, surgical prophylaxis, fungal infections, bacteruria, and management of infections associated with international travel.
