The management of sepsis has an essential role in surgical care and surgeons are major users of antimicrobial agents. Indeed, the development of antimicrobial drugs has enabled the development of modern surgery, free of the morbidity and mortality associated with septic complications. To use antimicrobial agents effectively, the surgeon needs an understanding of the microbiological and pharmacological basis of their role as well as their clinical use. This book is a manual of good practice giving essential advice on the choice of agent for the full range of surgical infections - taking both optimal clinical use and cost-effectiveness into account. The book provides a succinct and up-to-date account of those antimicrobial agents (including antiviral agents) more commonly used in surgery. It is structured both to review antimicrobial agent by type and by their mode of use in various surgical subspecialties. Extensive cross-referencing, tabulation and a good index ensure that the optimal treatment regimen for any given clinical situation can be found quickly. There is also an extensive bibliography. Antimicrobial resistance - an ever increasing problem worldwide - is highlighted and there are major sections on the use of antifungal agents and antibiotic use in immunocompromized patients. The book is designed as a guide to good practice for trainee surgeons and will also be useful to postgraduate and professional surgeons in all subspecialties faced with difficult surgical infection.

Handbook of Animal Models of Infection is a complete revision of a three-volume text that was published in 1986. It incorporates the major advances in the field during the past decade, in particular those concerning molecular biological procedures and new models that have been developed. It focuses on both methods and techniques, which makes it an essential and comprehensive reference as well as a benchtop manual. The Handbook will help investigators save time and effort in formulating an approach to test a new potential therapeutic agent or combination of agents for in vivo efficacy and to position the therapy for specific infections where it may have therapeutic promise. The book is divided into five sections; the first covering the general methodologies, followed by sections describing experimental bacterial, mycotic, parasitic, and viral infections. Discusses ethical and safety aspects in an introductory background section Covers principles of animal care and current techniques appropriate for the use of animal models of infection Details a wide range of animals including rodents, rabbits, cats, and primates Provides hands-on descriptions of how to set up the model Discusses the major advantages and limitations of each model Ensures full coverage of bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic infections

Now in full color, this text uses a unique age-specific organization to discuss all aspects of pediatric dentistry from infancy through adolescence. Each age-specific section covers the physical, cognitive, emotional, and social changes that children experience, as well as the epidemiology of dental disease at that age. Other chapters explore the examination, treatment planning, radiographic concerns, prevention, trauma, restorative dentistry, pulp therapy, orthodontics, and behavior management of each age range. Unique organization begins with an introduction to the basic information and topics pertinent to children of all ages, then divides up the rest of the text by age group to cover the specific changes the child experiences physically, cognitively, emotionally, and socially. In most cases, particular dental issues are discussed only once, at the point in a child’s development at which they are most appropriate. Section on children from conception to age three covers conditions such as cleft palate, disturbances in calcification, unusual numbers of teeth, oral habits, caries, and the development of malocclusions that start during these years. Chapter on aesthetic restorative dentistry for the adolescent looks at material selection, tooth color and form, diastemas, discolored teeth, bleaching and more. Chapter on sport dentistry and mouth protection covers how to evaluate child/adolescent athletes, the different types of mouth protection available, and professional activities in sports dentistry. Chapter on the diagnosis of oral lesions and developmental anomalies uses tables and extensive illustrations to depict developmental anomalies, white soft tissue lesions and enlargements, dark soft tissue lesions, ulcerative lesions, radiolucent lesions of bone, mixed radiolucent and radiopaque lesions of bone. NEW! Full-color design creates an immediate visual impact and better illustrates concepts and dental conditions.

A comprehensive guide to the rational and safe prescribing of antimicrobials in the treatment and prevention of bacterial infections. Now in its second revised edition. the book gives particular attention to the management of infections commonly found in Eastern Mediterranean countries.

The manual has five chapters. The first explains the general principles of safe and effective antimicrobial therapy, emphasizing the many factors that need to be considered when selecting drugs, doses and modes of administration. The second chapter, which constitutes the core of the manual, provides precise prescribing guidelines for the management of 77 bacterial infections. For each infection, information includes relevant diagnostic advice, the most likely causative organisms listed in the order of frequency, the first-choice drug or combination, followed by alternatives and advice on dosage, mode of administration and duration of therapy. The third chapter outlines essential information about the properties, advantages and limitations of topical preparations for use as disinfectants, antiseptics, cleaning agents and antibiotics. Chemoprophylaxis is covered in the fourth chapter, which describes indications for chemoprophylaxis to prevent wound infection and sepsis in surgery, to prevent selected infections and to prevent bacterial endocarditis. The concluding chapter sets out dosage ranges for 27 commonly used antimicrobials.

It presents a broad overview of age-related physiological changes as well as specific professional discipline perspectives. Organized into eleven distinct and interrelated units, the first unit begins with key anatomical and physiological considerations seen with aging which have significant impact on the older person. The second and third units go on to review important aging-related conditions and disorders of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular/neurological systems respectively. Neoplasms commonly encountered in older people are the focus of the fourth unit; while aging-related conditions of the cardiovascular, pulmonary, integumentary and sensory systems are presented in units five through seven. Unit eight highlights a range of specific clinical problems and conditions commonly encountered with older patients. Critically, all of these units emphasize important examination and diagnostic procedures needed for a thorough evaluation and stress interventions that can be of significant benefit to the older patient.
