Antibiotic Essentials

by Burke A. Cunha

The Antibiotics Essentials has been developed as a concise, practical, and authoritative guide for the treatment of infectious diseases. The book has many special features including chapters on clinical microbiology, initial empiric therapy (with easy to use treatment grids, IV to PO switch options), HIV, fungal parasitic infections, antibiotic prophylaxis & immunizations, pediatric infectious disease, chest X-ray atlas, antibiotic pearls & pitfalls, and infectious disease differential diagnosis. It includes both infectious and non-infectious diseases. Aside from chapter 7, pediatric infectious diseases, the book pertains to the treatment of infectious diseases and use of antimicrobial agents in adults. The clinical recommendations set forth in this book are those of the authors and are offered as general guidelines, not specific instructions for individual patients.
