Infectious diseases are common factors for admission in intensive care units, may it be community or hospital acquired, and constitute major hospital and financial burden. If treated in a wrong way, it will contribute to drug resistance and mortality. It becomes important to have correct diagnosis of infecting organisms and appropriate and empirical selection of antibiotics. Antibiotic stewardship principles minimize resistance and antibiotics complications. Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Stewardship in Critical Care Medicine 4th Edition has been fully updated and revised. The clinical diagnostic approach and correlation to common infectious disease problems is the underlying theme in the book. The book contains 38 chapters in three sections. Section I describes clinical diagnostic approach in critical care unit. Section II focuses on clinical syndrome approach and Section III on clinical approach to infections in compromised hosts. “Chapter on antibiotic failure: Apparent or actual” is nicely written.
