This Book Makes An Excellent Infectious Disease Primer And Quick Reference For Any Microbiology, Anatomy And Physiology, Or Human Biology Student.Introduction By Jeffrey Pommerville: For Many Students Entering The Allied Health And Nursing Fields, Connecting Infectious Diseas With Anatomy Is A Very Necessary And Rewarding Experience. As I Write This Second Edition, I Have Seen How Important It Is For My Students To Understand How An Infectious Agent Causes A Change From Good Health (Disease) In The Human Body. Therefore, I Have Put Together This Short Guide To Infectious Diseases By Body System To Help Students Understand The Relationships Between Infectious Agents And Human Body Systems. Since Some Disease Affect More Than One Body System, I Have Tried To Match Diseases With The More Likely Body System Affected. The 16 Anatomical Units Can Be Used With Any Text. Each Unit Begins With Background Material. Then, The Relationship Between Signs And Symptoms And The Body Part Affected Is Indicated In A Body System Illustration. The Important Section On Pathogenesis Describes The Cause, Development, And Effects Of An Infectious Disease. Each Unit Ends With A Brief Synopsis Of Treatment Options For The Infection.
