Clinician's Dictionary of Pathogenic Microorganisms (P30004)

Practicing clinicians, trainees, infection control practitioners, and allied health professionals will find the pocket-sized A Clinician's Dictionary of Pathogenic Microorganisms portable and easy to use. Coverage of pathogenic bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites that affect humans is comprehensive, yet quick and concise. The dictionary provides clinicians with a convenient means of understanding clinical features of the microorganisms they encounter.

The Clinician's Dictionary features a cross reference of new and old terminology of pathogenic microorganisms and includes material on not only on common pathogens, but also on those less frequently recovered from patients. Examines species that may be resistant to therapy, defines various infectious syndromes, and affords easy access to often esoteric organisms.
