Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Stewardship in Critical Care Medicine – 4th Edition (July 2020 Release)

Back Cover Copy:

Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Stewardship in Critical Care Medicine 4E has been fully updated and revised. The clinical diagnostic approach to common infectious disease problems in the CCU is the underlying theme in the book. Emphasized throughout is the importance of formulating an accurate early presumptive clinical syndromic diagnosis which is the basis for selecting optimal initial antimicrobial therapy in the CCU. Without an accurate presumptive clinical diagnosis, effective therapy is unlikely at best. Based on the most probable clinical diagnosis, optimal antibiotic empiric therapy, based on antimicrobial stewardship principles, minimizes resistance and antibiotic complications in the CCU.

This new edition features chapters that explain the tenets of differential diagnostic reasoning, differential diagnostic characteristics of fever patterns in the CCU. The proper interpretation of rapid diagnostic tests, in the appropriate clinical context, is included. The diagnostic importance of cardinal clinical findings, particularly when combined, in the appropriate clinical context is emphasized and remains the basis for clinical problem solving in the CCU. Uniquely, critical diagnostic physical findings in the CCU, including color atlas of diagnostic eye findings, are included as important diagnostic determinants in the CCU.

Written by infectious disease clinicians for CCU consultants, Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Stewardship in Critical Care Medicine 4E remains a useful evidence based and experience tempered key clinical resource for infectious disease problems in the CCU.

Key Features

  • Essentials of the tenets of clinical diagnostic reasoning is explained as it relates to formulating a rapid and accurate clinical syndromic diagnosis in the CCU
  • The diagnostic significance of fever patterns and their relationship to the pulse rate in the proper

clinical context is explained in depth as related to the CCU setting

  • Formulating an accurate early clinical syndromic diagnosis is presented as essential since it is the

basis of effective empiric antibiotic therapy in the CCU

  • How to combine key non-specific laboratory and imaging findings to increase diagnostic specificity and diagnostic probability in the CCU is presented
  • Clinical perspective on the proper interpretation of the clinical significance of rapid diagnostic test results in the CCU is included
  • A clinical approach to apparent “antibiotic failure” in the CCU is presented either due to actual antibiotic failure or seeming but unrelated non-antibiotic failure
  • Section focuses on the practical aspects of antimicrobial stewardship particularly as related to optimizing dosing effectiveness while minimizing resistance and adverse effects in the CCU

Microbiology of Wounds

It is not the presence of microorganisms, but their interaction with patients that determines their influence on wound healing. Documenting this critical but often ignored aspect of the treatment process, Microbiology of Wounds discusses the microbiology and biology of human wounds in relation to infection and non-healing. Gain the Necessary Scientific and Clinical Knowledge Pertaining to Chronic and Acute WoundsThe practice of wound healing is dynamic, infinitely complex, nonlinear, and prodigiously individualized to the patient. When one considers the myriad host variables that contribute to the disease state, understanding the intricacies of chronic wounds becomes even more difficult. This book presents the necessary scientific and clinical data pertaining to chronic and acute wounds, and discusses inflammation, epithelialization, granulation tissue, and tissue remodeling. It details techniques for treating chronic and acute wounds and covers the mode of action and efficacy of anti-infectives used in treating wounds. Microbiology of Wounds answers the call for a definitive reference on chronic and acute wounds.

Microbiological Contamination Control in Pharmaceutical Clean Rooms

Contamination control in pharmaceutical clean rooms has developed from a jumble of science and engineering, knowledge of what has worked well or badly in the past, dependent upon the technology available at the time the clean room was built and subsequent technological developments. Surrounding it all is a blanket of regulations. Taking a multidisciplinary approach, Microbiological Contamination Control for Pharmaceutical Clean Rooms neatly clarifies some of the perceived problems surrounding contamination control in pharmaceutical industry clean rooms.

The book helps you satisfy domestic and international regulations and prevent your organization from suffering the consequences of non-compliance. It includes up-to-date information on microbiological contamination in sterile manufacturing, microbiological media fills, microbiological environmental monitoring, control in aqueous-based, non-sterile pharmaceuticals, rapid testing methods, and clean room contamination control. This valuable guide brings you up to date on the types of techniques available, the scientific principles that underpin them, and the practicalities and limitations of each.

Oral Microbiology and Immunology, 3 edition

The field of oral microbiology has seen fundamental conceptual changes in recent years. Microbial communities are now seen as the fundamental etiological agent in oral diseases through their interface with host inflammatory responses. Study of structured microbial communities has increased our understanding of the roles of each member in the pathogenesis of oral diseases, principles that apply to both periodontitis and dental caries.

Against this backdrop, the third edition of Oral Microbiology and Immunology has been substantially expanded and rewritten by an international team of authors and editors. Featured in the current edition are:

links between oral infections and systemic disease
revised and updated overview of the role of the immune system in oral infections
thorough discussions of biofilm development and control
more extensive illustrations and Key Points for student understanding
