Description Manual of Childhood Infections The Blue Book 4th Edition PDF

The Editorial Board has nearly 200 authors writing the 120 chapters of this new edition.

Manual of Childhood Infections The Blue Book 4th Edition PDF is aimed at both trainee and practising hospital- and community-based paediatricians, nursing, and other medical staff caring for children in the United Kingdom, Europe, and internationally. It aims to provide an up-to-date reference guide including common differential diagnoses, medical management, and information on over 100 medicines. The aim of Manual of Childhood Infections The Blue Book 4th Edition PDF is to improve the evidence-based management to a child’s infection.
This new edition has short abstracts, key references, and key learning points which are now fully updated. Recent immunisation campaigns have substantially reduced rates of serious bacterial infection in children yet new and emerging infections remain a very serious concern. Rates of hospital-acquired infection are now a serious threat to children and much remains to be done to reduce nosocomial infection. Antimicrobial resistance has been flagged by the World Health Organization as one of the three greatest threats to human health.
New chapters on antimicrobial stewardship demonstrate the way forward for reducing the inappropriate antibiotic prescribing that drives this very serious problem. The development of an eBook format now provides a bedside approach to the practical management of common infections. All paediatricians should be encouraged to manage a child’s infection using this practical, simple evidence-based approach.
