Infectious Disease in the Aging

A Clinical Handbook

Beschreibung

Because aging is accompanied by a steady decline in resistance to infectious diseases, the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases in the elderly is not only much more complex, but also often quite different from that for younger patients. In Infectious Disease in the Aging: A Clinical Handbook, 2nd Edition, a panel of well-known and highly experienced geriatric physicians and infectious disease experts review the most important common infections affecting the elderly and delineate their well-proven diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventative techniques. Among the illnesses discusses are urinary tract infections, pneumonia, ocular infections, tuberculosis, and fungal and viral infections. There are detailed discussion of sepsis, infective endocarditis, intraabdominal infections, bacterial meningitis, osteomyelitis and septic arthritis, and prosthetic device infections. In addition, this 2nd edition includes new chapters on Herpes zoster, HIV/AIDS, and SARS and West Nile Virus.
Comprehensive, informative, and easily accessible, Infectious Disease in the Aging: A Clinical Handbook, 2nd Edition, offers all physicians treating geriatric patients the quickest and most up-to-date guide to understanding, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infectious disease problems in the elderly today.
