Following general principles of patient care, chapters treat the major types of diseases/disorders, HIV/AIDS, critical care, transplant medicine, and medical emergencies. The spiral-bound manual includes summary tables; appended material on immunizations and post-exposure therapies, infection control and isolation recommendations, and advanced cardiac life support algorithms; and one year of access to updated contents on a mobile device.
