Abstract:

The second revised edition of a pocket-sized guide to the rapid diagnosis and management of severe P. falciparum malaria. In view of the complexities of management, the need for speed, and the severe consequences of errors, the book adopts a highly didactic approach, offering an at-a-glance reference to the signs to look for, the tests to perform, the actions to take immediately and later, and the nursing care required. Special problems addressed throughout the book include the tendency of malaria to mimic many other diseases, the difficulty of diagnosis in cases of self-medication, the spread.
