2013 BMA Medical Book Awards Winner As the importance of medical entomology increases, access to up-to-date, authoritative information also becomes increasingly critical. For nearly 20 years, the award-winning, bestselling Physician's Guide to Arthropods of Medical Importance has established itself as a standard reference in doctors' offices and emergency rooms. Now in its sixth edition, this book maintains its status as the ultimate easy-to-use guide for physicians and other health care providers, public health officials, and pest control professionals who need to identify arthropods, the common signs and symptoms of vector-borne diseases, and the recommended forms of treatment. The book begins by describing the pathologic conditions caused by arthropods and the principles of treating those conditions. It elucidates the rationale behind the various treatment regimes and the underlying principles of controlling the immune response. It covers identification of arthropods and common signs and symptoms of vector-borne disease. The book then provides an alphabetical arrangement of arthropods of medical importance with clearly marked subheadings for easy information access. The author concludes with personal protection methods against arthropods. Now with color pictures throughout, the Sixth Editionas chapters have been updated with the latest information and current references. Older photographs and line drawings have been replaced with new and improved versions, and the interactive CD-ROM has also been updated with more pictures and videos as well as helpful identification aids, additional reading materials, and web links.
