Infectious diseases remain a predominant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Clinicians are facing new challenges such as emerging infections related to our global society and the increase in immunocompromised hosts. Drug resistance among bacterial and fungal isolates demands a working knowledge of common microbiologic testing and antimicrobial activity profiles. This cutting-edge, point-of-care handbook distills the explosion of information in the field of infectious diseases for the busy clinician and trainee. Provided in a concise, accessible format, the Oxford American Handbook of Infectious Diseases comprehensively covers all areas of this expanding field, making it easily available at the clinician's fingertips.

"This is an extraordinary concise reference for guidance in clinical infectious diseases, supported by definitions of basic terms and an overview of microbiology and antimicrobial pharmacology. It includes surveillance and management strategies for infection control. Although it does not include specific antibiotic doses, it is a handy pocket reference, offering reliable guidance for approaching a wide range of infectious diseases. Moreover, it would be perfect for test preparation for trainees." -- DOODY'S
