About this book

Introduction

Optimal antimicrobial use is essential in this era of escalating antibiotic resistance. Clinicians, particularly those on the frontlines of care, need an understanding of the management of common infectious diseases and the appropriate use of antimicrobials in the context of resistant pathogens. In Management of Antimicrobials in Infectious Diseases, Arch Mainous, PhD and Claire Pomeroy, MD and a group of antimicrobial experts and experienced clinicians provide an eminently practical summary of the most effective evidence-based antimicrobial treatments encountered in both the hospital and outpatient settings. At the forefront of this book is the clinical impact of appropriate diagnosis and treatment, as well as an emphasis on the newer aspects of infectious disease management necessitated by the increasing problem of resistant pathogens. Further, the book provides useful information on major pathogens to help practicing clinicians not only diagnose but treat effectively infections and their concomitant complications.

Multidisciplinary and highly practical, Management of Antimicrobials in Infectious Diseases offers busy clinicians, nurse practitioners, as well as residents and medical students a comprehensive and informed guide for management and treatment in the contemporary environment fraught with resistant pathogens.
