Leopoldo Alberto Dobronski Jacome, MD(Creighton University Medical Center)


This comprehensive book thoroughly explores conditions related to a very specific combination of medical specialties: pulmonology and infectious diseases. It covers epidemiology, clinical features, diagnosis, and management and uses charts, tables, and summaries that are easy to interpret and can be used for quick review.


The principal objective is to guide patient care. The book features in-depth information for many conditions, and most of the sections describe the most important aspects of each condition.


The audience includes physicians treating respiratory infections, particularly critical care physicians. Two editors and 66 authors contributed to this book, nearly all of them physicians from Europe and North America.


The book covers both common and uncommon conditions and includes information on special situations, such as the intravenous drug user and the immunocompromised patient. Special topics include antimicrobial pharmacology, pneumonia scoring systems, and the role of the nurse.


This book provides critical care practitioners with an extensive review of a variety of aspects of infectious diseases, along with flow charts and tables and the support of recent, relevant references.
