    Sinopse

    SUBJECT: The inappropriate use of chemical disinfectants in hospitals and laboratories is not uncommon. Apart from the unnecessary costs incurred, the abuse of disinfectants may result in cross-infection or point-source outbreaks that carry significant morbidity and mortality. The choice of the numerous agents is bewildering and this concise, practical book provides those involved with the control of hospital infection essential information for addressing this problem.NEED: The last edition of this handbook was published in 1993 by the PHLS. It is now in need of a major revision and update to include new disinfectants, revised hospital policies and the growing problem of resistance. The new edition will cover the principles of disinfection, the properties of disinfectants, safety issues, disinfection of the environment and the use of disinfectants in the laboratory. New references to scientific studies will be incorporated throughout.FORMAT: The third edition of Chemical Disinfection in Hospitals will be completely revised and updated to reflect the rapid pace of change in this area and the new disinfectants now available. This will result in approximately double the extent of the previous edition. The design will be revised to ensure the information is clear and accessible to the reader and there will be greater use of tables, boxes of key points and highlighted references throughout the text.COMPETITION: No direct competition at this level, size and price.CONTENT AND ORGANISATION: Definitions and principles of chemical disinfectants are presented in Chapter 1, followed by an informative listing of properties of chemical disinfectants and a brief overview of pathogens of significance in Chapters 2 and 3. These are divided into environmental disinfectants, skin disinfectants and instrument disinfectants. Each section lists the types of organisms killed by the disinfectant, specific uses for each, and handling guidelines. Chapter 4 discusses new regulations used in Europe to evaluate health risks for all employees exposed to hazardous substances (e.g. chemical disinfectants, pathogenic microorganisms) at work. This chapter includes the occupational exposure standards for a number of disinfectants, together with safety notes. Chapters 5 and 6 describe the formulation of a disinfection policy and specific disinfection recommendations for the environment (e.g. wards, toilets, washing bowls, bath and wash basins), skin (e.g. surgical scrub, injection sites, preoperative site preparation), and medical equipment (e.g. respiratory equipment, endoscopes). Chapter 7 covers the use of chemical disinfectants in hospital laboratories. Appendix 1 provides an alphabetical list of equipment or environmental sites with recommended decontamination procedures and Appendix 2 covers the methods used to test disinfectants.PAST HISTORY: The first edition of this book was published by the PHLS in 1984 (sales history unknown) and the second edition in 1993 at a price of £6.50 and initial print run of 5,000 copies. Without sales or marketing channels, the PHLS have sold a total of 2,360 copies in the past 3 years and continue to sell an average of 10 copies per month.SUPPORT: Professor Ayliffe and Dr Peter Hoffman are well known international experts in the field of hospital infection and particularly in the area of disinfection and antiseptics. The cover of the book will also be branded with the PHLS logo which should help to boost sales.MARKETING: We have an extensive list of titles in infectious diseases and clinical microbiology, in particular through our own journals and our distribution deals with the American Society of Microbiology and collaboration with the PHLS. Key meetings for this title include ECCMID, ICAAC and the ASM.SUMMARY: An essential reference guide for all those working in the fields of hospital disinfection and for those involved in setting up infection control policies.SUBJECT: The inappropriate use of chemical disinfectants in hospitals and laboratories is not uncommon.
