Description of Infection: Microbiology and Management (PDF)

Infection: Microbiology and Management written by B. Bannister, S. Gillespie & J. Jones is a great book for infection related studies available in PDF download. Infection Microbiology and Management encompass the management of infections in both the hospital and the community. It has been designed as a problem-solving text, which will be equally useful both to those preparing for examinations and to those working in the clinical setting. The introductory section sets out the important definitions required for the understanding of infectious diseases, their origins and routes of transmission to humans, their diagnosis, management, and control.

The presentation, diagnosis, and management of individual diseases are described in the systematic chapters. Each chapter introduces the range of diseases that can affect the relevant system and lists the pathogens responsible for each presentation in approximate order of importance. For each individual pathogen, the epidemiology and microbiology, clinical presentations and diagnosis, and strategies for prevention and control are described.

This textbook is designed to be used either as a learning text or as a practical textbook in the clinical setting. It should be most useful for senior medical and pharmacy students and for doctors preparing for examinations and assessments at the completion of general medical and surgical training programmes. It would be a useful text for those undertaking specialist training in clinical microbiology or public health, and would provide background information relevant to their everyday work as specialists. It contains much information that will be useful for infection control and for public health nurses, community nurses and environmental health offi cers.
