Exposure: a Guide to Sources of Infections is a single reference source for clinicians, public health professionals, epidemiologists, and clinical microbiologists working to identify infectious disease agents. From prions to parasites, this unique new volume offers comprehensive coverage of infections and infectious agents and provides a good starting point for compiling a thorough patient exposure history and initiating the appropriate laboratory testing. The infectious diseases detailed in Exposure are organized by major exposure groups and subgroups, and the book offers an international scope of coverage. Up-to-date information on sources of infections, transmission risks, and potential infectious agents is provided. A system of icons used throughout the book facilitates easy use of the book in time-sensitive situations. Infection risks for individuals, at-risk groups, the community at large, and outbreak situations are documented. Exposure features an alphabetical listing of infectious agents that examines modes of spread, risks, and the impact of infections. Additionally, the book includes an overview table that reviews the taxonomy of most agents that infect humans and a select number of agents that infect animals. Appendixes provide an exposure checklist, a glossary, and a list of acronyms used in the book.
