The new edition of this highly successful annual pocket guide presents clinicians with the most recent information in the field of antimicrobial therapy and infectious diseases.

Written by recognised experts in infectious disease, this edition discusses serum and urinary spectrum summaries of antibiotics and clinically relevant pharmacokinetics. Completely new sections on Antibiotic Stewardship, IV-to-PO Switch Therapy, and differentiation of colonisation and infection, are also included.

Unique features of this book include clinical synopses of common and uncommon infections worldwide, differential diagnosis of infectious diseases and non-infectious mimics, antibiotic IV-to-PO switch therapy options for infectious diseases; and HIV, HCV, Peds ID, antibiotic prophylaxis and immunisations, chest film differential diagnosis atlas, and gram stain atlas.

Key Points

  • Fifteenth edition presenting most recent information in field of antimicrobial therapy and infectious disease
  • Highly successful annual pocket guide
  • Includes many new topics
  • Authored by leading experts in the field
