Based on the premise that the nursing of communicable diseases is a specialty, this book has been prepared to aid in the education of competent communicable disease nurses. Since it is essential that such nurses be thoroughly familiar with both the theory and the practice of this specialty, the book includes descriptions of the course of the various communicable diseases and the methods of treatment. In addition, the general principles underlying medical asepsis and technic are amply stressed. In this edition revisions have been made in keeping with the advances which have occurred in the therapy of communicable diseases. A chapter on sulfanilamide and its derivatives has been added. The volume is well illustrated and constitutes an admirable textbook for the nurse desirous of increasing her knowledge of the communicable diseases.
