Antibiotics Basics for Clinicians-
The ABCs for Choosing The Right Antibacterial Agent, 2/e
Antibiotic Basics for Clinicians, Second Edition, shows you how to apply your knowledge of pharmacology and microbiology in order to the appropriate antibiotic. Rather than rely on rote memorization, you will learn the underlying rationale for treatment of common infectious diseases and pathogens. The text focuses on examining individual antibiotics and antibiotic classes as well as definitive and empiric therapies providing a framework for prescription and clinical preparation for students training to be physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacologists or medical technologists. Clinicians also rely on Antibiotic Basics for quick reference or review. The Second Edition includes current research and new approaches to emerging resistant organisms such as community-acquired, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumonia carbapenemase-producing bacteria. In addition, the book has been updated to reflect changes in treatment guidelines, including new guidelines for Clostridium difficile colitis and urinary tract infections.
