Synopsis:
Now in its thoroughly revised, updated Fifth Edition, this volume is a comprehensive, practical reference on contemporary methods of disinfe ction, sterilization, and preservation and their medical, surgical, an d public health applications. More than a third of this edition's chap ters cover subjects never addressed in previous editions. New topics covered include recently identified pathogens, microbial biofilms, use of antibiotics as antiseptics, synergism between chemical microbicide s, pulsed-light sterilization of pharmaceuticals, and new methods for medical waste management. Close attention is given to infection contro l problems posed by endoscopes, implants, prostheses, and organ transp lantation and to prevention of opportunistic infections in immunocompr omised patients.
