Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2002 - 755 pages

Manual of Antibiotics and Infectious Diseases: Treatment and Prevention was designed for health-care professionals involved in the daily care of patients with infectious diseases. The book covers antibiotics currently available, their doses, and their dose adjustments. It explains what to do when faced with renal failure, as well as empirical, prophylactic, and definitive antibiotic therapies--everything from bacteria resistance to AIDS therapies. A new section on hospital epidemiology and infection control is included in this Ninth Edition.

A Brandon-Hill recommended title.
