Infectiologie en réanimation et soins critiques
Plus de 75 fiches pratiques pour la prise en charge des infections virales, bactériennes et fongiques
More than 75 fact sheets for the management of viral, bacterial and fungal infections
At least one out of every two patients will have a potentially serious infectious problem during their stay in the intensive care unit or in the emergency room. In order to understand the treatment serenely, the physician must have physiopathological, clinical, microbiological and pharmacological notions.
The first part of this book is made up of theoretical chapters to understand the essentials: bacteriology reminders, pharmacokinetics, infectious reasoning in critical care and the role of the laboratory.
The other parts include practical sheets summarizing the key points.
✓ The treatment of the main infections with diagnostic reminders, antibiotic therapy protocols and key points.
✓ The identity sheet for each germ, which gives a precise and synthetic idea of the particularities of each infectious agent.
✓ Fact sheets for each group of anti-infective agents, specially designed for clinicians with a therapeutic perspective.
✓ Summary tables present the administration modalities and activity spectra of each anti-infective agent.
This book is an invaluable aid for resuscitation and critical care practitioners, as well as emergency physicians faced with the daily management of serious infections.
