Do you know the proper medicines and doses to treat someone for influenza or who recently had a surgical procedure done and may have developed an infection? Do you know how sepsis works and what to do about it? What about fungal infections and drug interactions?
"This book has the same lofty goals as the first eleven editions: to provide standards of care for the management of infectious disease with particular emphasis on antimicrobial agents, their selection, dosing regimens, costs, and side effects."
Originally written for doctors and other medical care providers, this handbook covers everything you need to know to assist those suffering from an infectious disease. From medicines and dosing to the diseases they are most effective with and meds that are best avoided for certain conditions, you'll get comprehensive and detailed medical knowledge from this 630-page journal of infectious disease.
Infections happen every day and are non-discriminatory in who they strike, making knowledge of how they work (and what to do about them) all the more important. This is the kind of information that can prevent epidemics and make the difference between life and death in an emergency situation.
