Video: Introduction to GIDEON eBooks


    • GIDEON eBooks are an encyclopedia of infectious diseases across countries worldwide. They are continually updated and represent the only texts of their kind. They complement the excellent GIDEON on-line diagnostic tool and are a great addition to a library for those practicing infectious diseases, public health, global health, and even primary care.

    • I was able to find my way around the information quickly and easily … it is a comprehensive reference book that provides up-to-date accessible information.

    • The Gideon Guide to Cross Border Infections is organized by disease name and chronicles 2238 individual incidents involving 120 generic infectious diseases. The content expands a more traditional definition of “traveler” to include military personnel, expatriates and students. It also lists instances of disease which occur when animals and food vehicles cross national borders. Chapters include all relevant diseases, including common (i.e. anthrax) and less-familiar zoonoses. The introduction notes that many disease importations (like Zika) are too numerous for tabulation in this book, and are covered by other titles in the series.
