It fits in every jacket pocket and provides a quick reference guide for all clinically active physicians in hospitals or doctor's practices. With the nearly unmanageable number of antibiotics an up-to-date, clear-cut presentation is essential. In clear tables - sorted by substances, pathogens and indications - spectra and recommendations for dosages can be easily looked up. Special problems such as the use of antibiotics during pregnancy, in perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis, and for renal and hepatic insufficiency are also included. This is a guide for your daily work: handy, concise, and clear. This book is adjusted to European standards: up-to-date substances, authorizations, resistances and trade names. This is the first guide to antibiotic therapy for Europe!
