Microbiology—the study of microbes—is a fascinating subject that impacts our daily lives in numerous ways. Microbes live on us and in us and virtually everywhere around us. They are vital in many industries. Microbes are essential for the cycling and recycling of elements such as carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen, and provide most of the oxygen in our atmosphere. They are used to clean up toxic wastes. Microbes are used in genetic engineering and gene therapy. And, of course, many microbes cause disease. In recent years, the public has been bombarded with news reports about microbe-associated medical problems such as swine flu, bird flu, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, flesh-eating bacteria, mad cow disease, superbugs, black mould in buildings, West Nile virus, bioterrorism, anthrax, smallpox, food recalls as a result of Escherichia coli and Salmonella contamination, and epidemics of meningitis, hepatitis, influenza, tuberculosis, whooping cough, and diarrheal diseases. Written for Healthcare Professionals Burton’s Microbiology for the Health Sciences has been written primarily for nurses and other healthcare professionals. This book provides students of these professions with vital microbiology information that will enable them to carry out their duties in an informed, safe, and efficient manner, and protect themselves and their patients from infectious diseases. It is appropriate for use in any introductory microbiology course, as it contains all of the concepts and topics recommended by the American Society for Microbiology for such courses. Unlike many of the lengthy introductory microbiology texts on the market, all of the material in this book can be covered in a typical undergraduate microbiology course. Chapters of special importance to students of the healthcare professions include those dealing with disinfection and sterilization (Chapter 8), antibiotics and other antimicrobial agents (Chapter 9), epidemiology and public health (Chapter 11), healthcare-associated infections and infection control (Chapter 12), how infectious diseases are diagnosed (Chapter 13), how microbes cause disease Chapter 14), how our bodies protect us from pathogens and infectious diseases (Chapters 15 and 16), and the major viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic diseases of humans (Chapters 17 through 21). New to the Tenth Edition The most obvious changes in the tenth edition are an increased number of full-color illustrations and improvement of the artwork. The book is divided into eight major sections, containing a total of 21 chapters. Each chapter contains a Chapter Outline, Learning Objectives, Self-Assessment Exercises, and information about the contents on . Interesting historical information, in the form of “ Historical Notes,” is spread throughout the book and is presented in appropriate chapters. Information summarizing important bacterial pathogens has been relocated from an appendix to Chapter 19. There are more Case Studies than in the ninth edition, and these, along with their answers, are located in the book rather than on . The number of Critical Thinking questions has been increased and are located on . Student-Friendly Features The authors have made every attempt to create a student- friendly book. The book can be used by all types of students, including those with little or no science background and mature students returning to school after an absence of several years. It is written in a clear and concise manner. It contains more than 50 Study Aid boxes, which explain difficult concepts and similar-sounding terms. Key points are highlighted. New terms are defined in the text and are included in a Glossary at the back of the book. Answers to Self-Assessment Exercises contained in the book can be found in Appendix A. Appendix C contains useful formulas for conversion of one type of unit to another (e.g., Fahrenheit to Celsius and vice versa). Because Greek letters are commonly used in microbiology, the Greek alphabet can be found in Appendix D. Additional Resources Burton’s Microbiology for the Health Sciences, 10th edition, includes additional resources for both instructors and students that are available on the book’s companion Web site at http://thePoint.lww.com/Engelkirk10e. Instructor Resources Approved adopting instructors will be given access to the following additional resources: • Image Bank • Test Generator • Lesson Plans • PowerPoint Slides • Clinical Microbiology Laboratory Procedures Manual

Emerging infectious diseases may be defined as diseases being caused by pathogens only recently recognized to exist. This group of diseases is important globally, and the experience of the last 30 years suggests that new emerging diseases are likely to bedevil us. As the global climate changes, so changes the environment, which can support not only the pathogens, but also their vectors of transmission. This expands the exposure and effects of infectious disease and, therefore, the importance of widespread understanding of the relationship between public health and infectious disease. This work brings together chapters that explain reasons for the emergence of these infectious diseases. These include the ecological context of human interactions with other humans, with animals that may host human pathogens, and with a changing agricultural and industrial environment, increasing resistance to antimicrobials, the ubiquity of global travel, and international commerce. * Features the latest discoveries related to influenza with a newly published article by Davidson Hamer and Jean van Seventer * Provides a listing of rare diseases that have become resurgent or spread their geographic distribution and are re-emergent * Highlights dengue and malaria, as well as agents such as West Nile and other arboviruses that have spread to new continents causing widespread concerns * Includes discussions of climate influencing the spread of infectious disease and political and societal aspects
