Mathematical Models of Infectious Diseases and Social Issues

 Infectious Diseases  Comments Off on Mathematical Models of Infectious Diseases and Social Issues
Oct 072020
 

When deadly illness spreads through a population at a rapid pace, time may be of the essence in order to save lives. Using mathematics as a language to interpret assumptions concerning the biological and population mechanics, one can make predictions by analyzing actual epidemiological data using mathematical tests and results. Mathematical models can help us understand the right disease status and predict the effects of the disease on populations, which can help limit the spread and devastation of the illness.
Mathematical Models of Infectious Diseases and Social Issues is a collection of innovative research that examines the dynamics of diseases and their effect on populations. Featuring coverage of a broad range of topics including deterministic models, environmental pollution, and social issues, this book is ideally designed for diagnosticians, clinicians, healthcare providers, pharmacists, government health officials, policymakers, academicians, researchers, and students.

Infectious Disease Informatics: Syndromic Surveillance for Public Health and BioDefense

 Infectious Diseases  Comments Off on Infectious Disease Informatics: Syndromic Surveillance for Public Health and BioDefense
Oct 052020
 

Computer-based infectious disease surveillance systems are capable of real-time or near real-time detection of serious illnesses and potential bioterrorism agent exposures and represent a major step forward in disease surveillance. Infectious Disease Informatics: Syndromic Surveillance for Public Health and Bio-Defense is an in-depth monograph that analyzes and evaluates the outbreak modeling and detection capabilities of existing surveillance systems under a unified framework, and presents the first book-length coverage of the subject from an informatics-driven perspective.Individual chapters consider the state of the art, including the facilitation of data collection, sharing and transmission; a focus on various outbreak detection methods; data visualization and information dissemination issues; and system assessment and other policy issues. Eight chapters then report on several real-world case studies, summarizing and comparing eight syndromic surveillance systems, including those that have been adopted by many public health agencies (e.g., RODS and BioSense). The book concludes with a discussion of critical issues and challenges, with a look to future directions.This book is an excellent source of current information for researchers in public health and IT. Government public health officials and private-sector practitioners in both public health and IT will find the most up-to-date information available, and students from a variety of disciplines, including public health, biostatistics, information systems, computer science, and public administration and policy will get a comprehensive look at the concepts, techniques, and practices of syndromic surveillance.

 Infectious Diseases, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Evidence-Based Pediatric Infectious Diseases
Oct 022020
 

Evidence-based Pediatric Infectious Diseases is a practical guide to the diagnosis and management of childhood infections in clinical practice. Renowned Clinical Professor of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, David Isaacs, and an expert consultant editor team, bring you the first book to critically look at the evidence for decision making in pediatric infections.
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
• cost
• adverse effects
• ethical considerations.
Clear summaries and specific guidance allow you to assess the evidence for yourself and make rapid but informed management decisions based on the strength of evidence available. Antibiotic doses are presented clearly and simply, enabling you to select appropriate treatment at a glance.

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.

Evidence-based Pediatric Infectious Diseases is an indispensable resource for any practitioner who strives to provide the best evidence-based care for childhood infections.
