From the Publisher
This is the original pocket-size 4 X 6 inch version. The larger, spiral 5.5 X 8.5 inch version is also available: ISBN 1930808232.
With the release of the 35th Edition in 2005, The Sanford Guide to Antimicrobial Therapy continues to be one of the most frequently used and widely relied upon references in medicine. With ever-increasing challenges posed by new and re-emerging infectious diseases, this concise, well-annotated pocket reference remains a staple in lab coat pockets throughout the world.
Our current editorial board -- David N. Gilbert, MD; George M. Eliopoulos, MD; Robert C. Moellering, MD; and Merle A. Sande, MD -- continues its fine work in reviewing the literature for the annual update of the Sanford Guide.
The Sanford Guide to Antimicrobial Therapy can be had in more ways than ever: the long-familiar pocket-sized edition which so many of our readers first became acquainted with in medical school or as residents; the larger spiral-bound edition for those of us whose eyesight just isn't what it used to be; and now, the same content found in the print editions is available in electronic editions for Palm OS and Pocket PC handheld computers. Each electronic edition contains the full content, including all of the references, of the print editions. For those familiar with the print edition, the user interface provides a familiar look and feel.
The Sanford Guide to Antimicrobial Therapy was the creation of Jay P. Sanford, MD in the late 1960s when he was Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Infectious Diseases Service at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas.
