5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great for mosquito smashing--both practice and motivation 9 septembre 2014
Par Doug Hibbard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I live in rice farming country, and the first contribution this Tropical Medicine textbook made to controlling tropical diseases? Smashed a mosquito, dead. For this alone, I would give 5 stars.

However, I doubt you're shopping here for that purpose. So, what do we have?

Obviously, it's a medical study textbook. For the most part, that is the target audience, and if your school requires it, then you're going to read it. Also fairly obvious: from a UK publisher, so there are a few "u"s scattered in the spelling that we Americans might get thrown by.

Now, when it comes to general reading: you don't want this book for fun reading. You'll be convince of the mosquito-borne apocalypse all night long.

However, if you are studying either for legitimate disaster readiness or for medical knowledge, you'll find this a well-organized presentation of tropical medicine issues. First, there is an overview of typical symptoms--and then a breakdown of how to work through these to find the actual underlying infection.

After all, few show up and say "I have visceral leishmaniasis" but they will present with fever. Taking this example, the text also explains how to deal with co-presentation with HIV infection and addresses the prospects for the eradication of this disease. (It is parasitic and therefore could be reduced or eliminated if the vectors are treated.)

The included information on HIV demonstrates the prevalence of that infection and concern over it around the world.

A word is also due about the available resources through the linked Lecture Notes Series website. These are comprehensive and a great aid to understanding the material.

Of course, it all seems to come back to mosquitoes. So smash a few, and then work on controlling them as a disease vector...and take a read at this if your field requires knowledge of tropical medicine.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well-organized and thorough 8 octobre 2014

"Tropical Medicine Lecture Notes" provides a comprehensive overview of tropical medicine for the student or practitioner, including diagnostic approach to symptoms, infections, and other diseases, plus a brief final chapter on the consequences of the designated neglected tropical diseases. Prevention and management from a public health viewpoint are discussed, as well as the expected information on diagnosis and treatment of individuals.

The book is well-organized and relatively consistent in quality of content despite the many different contributors. Color and illustrations such as photographs, charts, and algorithms are employed well and necessary additional resources for in-depth study are incorporated by chapter. A simple table of contents and a serviceable index aid in navigation. Online resources include multiple choice questions.

The contributors are predominantly from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, with significant contributions from other UK clinicians and experts. Contributing authors and editors forgo payment and the royalties fund medical students doing clinical electives in tropical countries.

Overall, a good resource for both students and clinicians who encounter tropical diseases, whether in Western Africa, the South American jungle, South Asia, or a New York City emergency room.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Lots of knowledge 18 septembre 2014

I'm not in the field of medicine, but it is extremely fascinating to me. Subsequently I picked this book up in order to perhaps learn a few things in case of a disaster where medical help may not be available.

First off I learned a lot of useful things about different infections and the like as well as how to identify them. There are also treatments that are discussed and for the common person those may be harder to execute.

It seems like some things are covered more in depth than others. However since this is suppose to be lecture notes I'm sure there are other readings that would pair well with this. It also looks like there is an interactive online option however it requires a code that I was not provided with this "advance copy". I also would have preferred more pictures of the said ailments but there are other books for that I'm sure.

There's a lot of information to obtain from this book whether your a would be health professional or a regular civilian who believes in being prepared for the worst. Keep in mind this is not light reading in any way but as far as i'm concerned its worth having.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Useful if you are traveling in the remote countrysides of SE Asia 12 septembre 2014

The text itself is readable to most people, which is great. There is some medical jargon as expected, but nothing that some light googling couldn't make clear. In general the text covers symptoms, the cause, a short summary of how the disease progresses, and hopefully, as it does in most cases, it discusses a treatment.

The quality of the paper is great. It's smooth; text is clear and so are the color pictures.

Pictures of symptoms are in color.

The book is a good size. The pictures make it look huge, but in reality its dimensions are smaller than most high school notebooks.


Price: It is a textbook, so it will command textbook prices. It's actually pretty reasonable for a textbook in terms of price.


Highly recommended if you plan on going anywhere remote in tropical areas.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Everything that I needed for an educational session on tropical medicine. Whew! 8 septembre 2014

I am an RN who case manages work related injuries and exposures. I also serve as a resource for the claim staff who do not have medical training. They must handle complex medical claims for workers who travel to Africa, India and South America on business. I was asked to put together some presentations on tropical medicine. This book as been a life saver. Not only does it cover most of the more common tropical illnesses rarely found in the US, the website has Power Point presentations and handouts available to the user. A complete and total life saver in addition to having everything I need on the topic!

I can honestly say that I might never have needed this book prior to my current position but it has been very helpful. It is very well organized. Bravo.
