Produktbeschreibung
The past decade has been highlighted by numerous advances in research of medical scientific knowledge, medical technology and the biological and diagnostic techniques-but somewhat less dramatic changes or improvement in management of medical conditions. This volume in the Emerging Infectious Disease of the 21st century series, addresses some of the emerging issues and controversies in Infectious Diseases. The author has chosen these topics for review based on questions and contentions raised by medical residents, internists, emergency physicians, clinical infectious disease specialists and family physicians. This volume will provide guidance and answers to frequently asked questions in infectious diseases to the researcher, clinician, generalists, specialists and trainees in these areas; thus, facilitating improved patient care, prudent and cost effective management and investigation of these disorders. This volume reviews the research, diagnosis, and treatment of some common infections facing researchers, clinicians and family physicians such as sinusitis, otitis media and asymptomatic bacteriuria. Recent studies and surveys have shown that these conditions are often over diagnosed and treated unnecessarily with antibiotics. The approach and guidelines for diagnosis and management are reviewed in this volume. Other more complicated but less common conditions challenging internists, clinical infectious disease consultants and other specialists are also reviewed (i.e. meningitis, ventilator associated pneumonia, sepsis, hepatitis C, B etc.) TOC:Central Nervous System.- Head and Neck Infections.- Pulmonary Infection New Concepts in the Management of Sepsis.- Empiric Therapic for Febrile Neutropenia.- Issues in the Management of Prosthetic Joint/Bone Infections.- Emerging Trends in Management of Staphylococcus aureus Bacteremia.- Combination Treatement of Bacterial Infections.- Trends and Issues in Urinary Tract Infection.- Trends and Controversies with Use of Probiotics.- Emerging Issues in Mycobacterium tuberculosis.- Varicella Zoster Virus.- New Trends.- Emerging issues in Management of Hepatitis B and C.- Respiratory Syncytial virus Infection an unrecognized pathogen in Adults.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"The book is well timed, and it places perceived and real viral threats in perspective. ... the book will be a valuable contribution to education and preparedness. ... This book will be a useful and relatively current resource not only for experts and researchers in public health and infectious diseases but also for veterinary and medical professionals as well as graduate students." (Jonathan L. Heeney, New England Journal of Medicine, August, 2007)
