Antibiotic Essentials 14th Edition

This is the latest edition of Antibiotic Essentials, a pocket guide to antimicrobial therapy and infectious diseases, updated annually. Not simply a collection of guidelines, but a practical and authoritative guide, written by expert clinicians for practising clinicians, presented in a user friendly format. Antibiotic Essentials provides an overview of antimicrobial therapy, followed by guidance on therapy for over 550 clinical syndromes, including cardiovascular infections, sexually transmitted diseases, sepsis, and transplant infections. Subsequent chapters cover antibiotic susceptibility profiles, parasites, fungi and other organisms, HIV infections and prophylaxis. A separate chapter covers infectious diseases and antimicrobial agents in paediatrics. A chest x-ray atlas and a list of antibiotic pearls and pitfalls are also provided. This new edition encompasses over 170 antimicrobial drug summaries in its concluding chapter, including six recently approved antimicrobials, new to this edition. Each antimicrobial drug summary includes pharmacokinetic data, antibiotic resistance potential, adverse effects, drug interactions, and dosing recommendations
