Washington Manual of Infectious Diseases Subspeciality Consult 2nd Edition PDF
9.6 MB PDF
We are delighted to introduce the long-awaited second edition of The Washington Manual ™ Infectious Diseases Subspecialty Consult. The chapters have been contributed primarily by faculty and fellows from the Infectious Diseases Division in the Department of Internal Medicine at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
Infectious disease is an exciting field in constant evolution. Even since the release of the first edition of this manual, there have been new diseases, new diagnostic methods, and new treatment challenges with the development of multipledrug–resistant organisms. There continues to be a need for specialists in this field. Infectious disease specialists treat patients of all ages, deal with all organ systems, and collaborate with nearly all other medical specialties and subspecialties. In infectious disease, no case is exactly the same, so there is no “cookbook” approach to these problems. This makes each case intriguing, and even the most mundane cases have appeal. It is our hope that this manual stimulates interest in infectious disease among its readers and inspires them to pursue a career in this specialty.
This manual complements the Washington Manual of Medical Therapeutics by providing more in-depth coverage of infectious diseases. We have focused on providing easy-to-follow guidance for the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases likely to be seen by medical house officers and hospitalists. Diseases are organized primarily by organ system to facilitate generating a useful differential diagnosis based on a patient’s presentation. By providing practical guidance for common problems, the manual serves not as a comprehensive textbook, but rather as a go-to reference that can be kept handy on the wards.
It should be noted that the dosing information in the text assumes normal renal function unless otherwise indicated. Dosing information for impaired renal function is available in Chapter 20: Antimicrobial Agents.
