Details about Oxford Textbook of Medicine Infection
Oxford Textbook of Medicine Infection PDF free download – The Oxford Textbook of Medicine is one of the most comprehensive, respected, and widely read textbooks of medicine. Regularly updated, it has become ever larger since it was fi rst published in 1983 as medical knowledge increased exponentially. Wisely, a decision has been made to publish the infection section of the textbook, one of the largest, as a stand-alone volume—the Oxford Textbook of Medicine: Infection . During a life-time of clinical practice I have seen infectious diseases develop from a ‘behind closed doors’ speciality, principally practised in isolation hospitals, to one of the most dynamic areas of medicine with major advances in the biology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of microbial diseases. All of these aspects are dealt with in detail in this new book of over 800 pages. The contents range from the classical infectious diseases of childhood to exotic infections originating in tropical countries. David Warrell’s vast experience of medicine in developing countries is refl ected in the authoritative coverage of tropical diseases. Recently recognised infections are described in detail and the sections on immunisation and antimicrobial therapy are comprehensive. The Oxford Textbook of Medicine: Infection , with chapters written by authorities from around the world, encompasses all that a physician needs to know about infection.
