Description

The rapidly changing pattern of the human immunodefficiency virus (HIV) pandemic, and the resulting impact on the prevention and treatment of AIDS has made it difficult for physiscians to keep abreast of the optimal management strategies in the field. This book summarizes the wide range of clinically relevant information on HIV-infected adults into a concise reference that is up-to-date, accessible, and pragmatic. It deals with the key issues and commonly occurring problems in HIV research, and includes material on the symptom-based approach to treatment. Several chapters discuss topics not typically covered in similar books on the subject, such as HIV testing, the initial evaluation, future anti-HIV therapies, alternative therapies, and nutrition. The format is specifically designed for the busy practitioner's convenience, with subheadings clearly outlining the principal elements of each chapter, and treatment regimens placed in boxes. The diagnostic and treatment guidelines are easy to follow and even where a consensus on treatment is lacking, the authors have made recommendations based on the existing data. The handbook is intended to serve the information needs of physicians, nurses, and other health care providers, as well as interested general readers.
