Emerging Transplant Infections Excerpt :

The field of transplant medicine has evolved significantly since the first kidney transplant was performed in 1954. Innovations in transplant immunosuppression have lowered the risk of organ rejection so that infectious complications are now the leading cause of hospitalization and mortality after solid organ transplant. Infection is also cited as the leading cause of non-relapse mortality after stem cell transplantation. As transplant centers have recognized the importance of transplant specific expertise in patient outcomes, the field of transplant infectious diseases has expanded into a recognized and highly valued subspecialty. International growth in solid organ and stem cell transplantation has outpaced access to such expertise, with some centers employing microbiology laboratory directors and transplant nephrologists as their lead infectious diseases consultants. This has been a particular challenge as the use of novel immunosuppressive regimens in new geographic and immigrant populations have fueled the emergence of new infection syndromes, with the initial presentation sometimes occurring in this most vulnerable patient population. This digital-first book is designed to meet the needs of practitioners engaged in transplant infectious disease practice who need more depth than they are able to find in UpToDate. It provides an overview of emerging infectious disease challenges with clinically relevant information regarding the epidemiology, diagnosis, management, and prevention of infections in solid organ and stem cell transplant recipients. Each chapter focuses on a clinical syndrome or pathogen with new or emerging implications for transplant patients. Given the rapidly evolving nature of emerging infections and topics in transplant infections, no resource has been published on these increasingly notorious issues; this this text is written by top, global experts who regularly update the material to ensure that readers will always have access to the most cut

Healthcare associated Infections in Children Excerpt :

This book focuses on the epidemiology, diagnosis and management of Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) in children. Unlike similar texts, this book details both the general principles involved in HAIs and infection prevention and also provides a problem-oriented approach, more precisely meeting the needs of a clinician at the bedside. Importantly, included in this text are discussions on medical device-related infections in children. The book is divided into three principle sections: 1) basic principles of infection control and prevention, 2) major infectious syndromes and 3) infections in vulnerable hosts. Each chapter covers the epidemiology, microbiology, clinical features, diagnosis, medical management and prevention of the disease entity of interest. Written by experts in the field, chapters are evidenced-based, drawing from the published medical literature as well as from clinical practice guidelines. Richly illustrated with tables, figures and algorithms, the book is designed to assist in the evaluation and management of these often complex patients. Healthcare-Associated Infections in Children is a valuable resource for infectious disease specialists, intensivists, neonatologists, surgeons, oncologists, infection preventionists, hospitalists, nurses, and all medical professionals treating children who are susceptible to HAIs.
