Resource:ABX Guide

Name: Resource:ABX Guide
Description:

Launched in 2000, the ABX Guide is a state-of-the-art resource providing concise, clinically useful, and up-to-date information for diagnosing, managing and treating infectious diseases in adults; however it does cover some pediatric topics including vaccines. It is designed for primary care providers and other non-infectious disease specialists as a tool that can be used at the point of care to assist in prescribing antibiotics. It has rapidly become a premier infectious disease resource in the field with more than 350,000 registered users--half of whom download the application to their PDA devices.

You may browse the guide by:

  • Diagnosis - covers infectious disease problems with diagnostic and treatment recommendations.
  • Drugs - comprehensive yet concise information on indications, dosing, pharmacokinetics, side effects and drug interactions.
  • Pathogens - specific information relating to microbiology, diagnosis and therapy.
  • Management How to handle common syndromes with advice on differential diagnosis and treatment.
  • Vaccines Immunization recommendations including administration and contraindications.

The material presented on this site represents the considered opinion of the Hopkins expert who is listed as the author of the page as of the date indicated on the page. If an author relied on a particular set of guidelines in crafting his/her recommendations, that information/reference appears under the "Basis for Recommendation" heading. Otherwise, the references section will contain an annotated list of those articles that the author considers to be the best on the topic. Where authoritative guidelines exist, such as CDC or ISDA guidelines or The Medical Letter Reports, such guidelines serve as the basis for all recommendations presented on this site.
