Infection Illustrated: An Atlas and Synopsis of Medical Microbiology, presents a dynamic exploration of human infectious diseases and the agents that cause them. Using images, animations and text the pathogenic viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites are all described and how they produce disease is explained. How does HIV cause AIDS? Why does influenza come back year after year? How can E. coli be both benign and the cause of urinary tract infection, diarrhea, or deadly hemolytic uremic syndrome? The causes of strep throat, hepatitis, plague, rabies, anthrax, ringworm, malaria, African sleeping sickness and many more are all here. Also included are the diagnostic tests, antimicrobial treatments, and vaccines for all important human pathogens. The content for Infection Illustrated is adapted for the iPad from Sherris Medial Microbiology (5th edition, Kenneth J. Ryan & C. George Ray, editors, 2010) McGraw-Hillâ€™s classic textbook. For more than a quarter-of-a-century Sherris has been unmatched in its ability to help you understand the nature of microorganisms and their role in the maintenance of health or causation of disease. The artwork, photographs, and tables from the book have been adapted for the iPad retina display. Infection Illustrated is the fastest, most colorful, and most exciting way to learn about the world of microbes and the diseases they cause. Features * 98 3-D models of viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites that can bring about infectious diseases * Core sections on viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic diseases open with chapters detailing basic biology, pathogenesis, and antimicrobial agents and feature a consistent presentation covering Organism (structure, replication, genetics, etc.), Disease (epidemiology, pathogenesis, immunity), and Clinical Aspects (manifestations, diagnosis, treatment, prevention) * Explanations of host-parasite relationship, dynamics of infection, and host response * All tables, photographs, and illustrations are now in full color * Clinical Capsules cover the essence of the disease(s) caused by major pathogens
