M Research and clinical experience are continually expanding our knowledge, in particular our knowledge of proper treatment and drug therapy. Insofar as this book mentions any dosage or application, readers may rest assured that the authors, editors, and publishers have made every effort to ensure that such references are in accordance with the state of knowledge at the time of production of the book.
Nevertheless, this does not involve, imply, or express any guarantee or responsibility on the part of the publishers in respect to any dosage instructions and forms of applications stated in the book.
Such examination is particularly important with drugs that are either rarely used or have been newly released on the market.
The authors and publishers request every user to report to the publishers any discrepancies or inaccuracies noticed. Updated and expanded coverage of the mycology and molecular chapters reflect the latest advances in the field.
New clinical scenarios demonstrate key applications of microbiology in the real world. Additional high quality images enhance visual understanding. Clinical correlations link microorganisms to specific disease states using references to the most current medical literature available. Practical guidelines for cost-effective, clinically relevant evaluation of clinical specimens include extent of workup and abbreviated identification schemes.
In-depth chapters cover the increasingly important areas of immunologic and molecular diagnosis.
Principles of biochemical tests are explained and illustrated to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
Line drawings, photographs, and tables clarify more complex concepts. Display boxes highlight essential information on microbes. I found the Color Atlas of Medical Bacteriology, 2 nd edition , to be a rich compilation of information, photographs, and illustrations that can aid clinical microbiologists on the bench.
After a brief preface, which discusses the traditional history of medical bacteriology, the authors acknowledge that bacteriology is more of a dynamic art than a science. This second edition provides updated photo illustrations of Gram stains, colony morphologies and biochemical tests and reactions frequently encountered in clinical microbiology laboratories. The authors have expanded the text by adding 2 additional chapters related to antimicrobial resistance and susceptibility testing, as well as novel molecular technologies and their incorporation into the routine clinical microbiology workflow.
The text is divided into 40 chapters; each begins with a brief introduction before discussing an individual bacterial genus or group of related bacteria.
The introduction provides a succinct overview, along with information about the types of illness caused by the particular type of bacteria and clinical manifestations of symptoms before discussing laboratory testing and identification strategies. This text is not meant to replace other, more comprehensive texts for clinical microbiology reference, nor does it attempt to do so.
It succeeds at its mission to introduce organisms and then to provide context for each in the form of selected images and illustrations. These elements make this atlas a useful reference source. A strong point of the book for students is the way the text is organized. By covering each genus separately, this book is an ideal study aid for students who want to see close up pictures of colony morphology and biochemical reactions.
Although not every organism encountered in the clinical laboratory can be included in a color atlas, the authors do a thorough job of covering all of the clinically important genera. When covering a particular type of media or biochemical reaction, the authors include a brief explanation of the principle of the test or media.
The accompanying photographs depict positive and negative reactions; these photos are clear and feature easy-to-distinguish reactions.
However, some of the photographs of colony morphology can be difficult to visualize. For example, some bacteria with small colonies that are opaque or light gray can be hard to distinguish on the agar surface. It would have been beneficial if the authors had included magnified images to attempt to visualize some of the finer details of individual colony-forming units. Also, it was sometimes difficult to visualize zones of inhibition in certain photographs of susceptibility-testing photographs.
