Clinical Microbiology by Keith Struthers Second Edition Ebook PDF download Infectious diseases and medical microbiology embrace the broad discipline of clinical microbiology, a subject that highlights the importance of infection in every medical specialty.

Diseases range from those associated with foreign travel, to the patient in the emergency department with a community acquired pneumonia, or the patient with antibiotic-associated diarrhoea on a surgical ward. While each example here is different in terms of the direct knowledge required to manage the patient safely,  basic principles relating to epidemiology, transmission, clinical assessment, diagnosis and treatment are shared.

This is underpinned by an understanding of the pathogenic properties of organisms, their interaction with the human host and how they cause disease. This directs safe and prudent prescribing of anti-infective agents; correct Infection control and public health practice completes the process.

I have written this book as a general introductory resource, to provide the background knowledge for a wider and deeper appreciation of this enthralling discipline. The medical student can use this knowledge as the basis for ward-based clinical training
