Quick Overview
This book has several unique approaches which make it different from the existing books. It is a clinical microbiology practical book. After reading this book, the students will have a bird’s eye view on how to diagnose infectious diseases clinically followed by how to go about laboratory investigations. It is the first microbiology book which is written in class-wise pattern according to MBBS practical class schedule. This will help the teacher know what to teach during a practical class, what to keep for demonstration during the practical class and also will give the teacher a holistic approach to make the yearly practical schedule. This will also help the students to know what to read during a practical class, what to write in the records and what to read during MBBS university practical examination. There is a separate chapter for university practical examination providing the pattern for various universities. This will help the students prepare for their practical examination. This will also help the teacher to modify or update the practical examination pattern. The uniqueness of this book is the Problem-based Exercises. Each chapter starts with a problem-based exercise, i.e. clinical case scenario. The whole chapter is about solving the problem covering the important practical aspects of the topic. There are more than 600 images, kept according to the demonstrations of practical classes, which will help the teachers know what is needed to demonstrate in practical classes. If facility is not available, they can just keep the image itself during the practical class. Images will help the students coordinate and read about the items demonstrated in the class with what is given in the practical book. Like our other books, this one also has followed the same principle, e.g. more content accommodated in less pages so as to give handy look and saving student’s time, written in a concise, bulleted format and to-the-point text and simple and lucid language. Several new practical class topics are covered in this book which are essential for MBBS graduates to learn, but are often missed in practical classes of most colleges, such as demonstration of automated culture and molecular methods; antimicrobial susceptibility testing (reading of disk diffusion and minimum inhibitory concentration)—interpretation with reference to Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI); sterilization and disinfection—according to hospital practice with special note on Central Sterile Services Department (CSSD), enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and immunofluorescence, Western blot and rapid test; laboratory diagnosis of leptospirosis and scrub typhus and dengue; hepatitis viruses (understanding the interpretation of algorithms of markers); human immunodeficiency virus [understanding the interpretation of tests according to National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) guideline]; bacteriology of water, air and surface—importance of environmental surveillance; hospital-acquired infection—methods to perform hand hygiene and WHO’s five moments of hand hygiene; biomedical waste—concept of segregation of waste in appropriate color-coded bags according to 2016 rule; vaccines and tables in parasitology chapters to make understanding easy.
