Emerging, re-emerging, and antibiotic-resistant infectious diseases continue to increase at an alarming rate throughout the world. Written for a wide range of health professionals, particularly nurses, this revised edition provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of these diseases: their epidemiology, clinical manifestations, prevention, and treatment.

With contributions by a multidisciplinary team of nurses, physicians, and infectious disease specialists, the book includes material on the most recent and important new emerging infectious diseases:



  • Avian influenza and SARS
  • Issues of demographics and microbial resistance
  • Special topics, including bioterrorism
  • Behavioral and cultural factors
  • Infectious etiologies of chronic diseases
  • Travel and recreational exposure

Each chapter is amply illustrated with clinical case examples to demonstrate the pitfalls in differential diagnosis and elucidate proper management and treatment. Valuable appendices provide critical reference information for each of the bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic diseases.

Cheap, but no pictures. Information is already getting outdated. Dec 14 2010
By Michael A. Kuszpa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
OK, this book was a required textbook for a graduate course I just completed. There are no photos in this book. I like pictures. This book is easy to read and provides a good overview of diseases. However, scientific peer reviewed journal articles found on the internet are much more informative and as expected much more up to date. Needless to say, in retrospect, I would not buy this book. I received an "A" in my course without even referencing any material from this book.

Overall, if you want a basic understanding of some emerging infectious diseases, you can buy this book. If you want some good up to date research, use internet resourced peer reviewed scientific journals.

Incomplete Dec 8 2009
By Justin Reilly, esq. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
ME is a common and extremely disabling neuroendocrine immune disease. It has been known since the 1980s to be associated with multiple bacterial and virus, including retrovirus, infections and b cell lymphomas. It deserves more thorough coverage.
