Der Einsatz von Antibiotika ist integraler Bestandteil der Therapie im Bereich der operativen Medizin. Zu definieren sind die Randbedingungen, Auswahl und Kombination, Dauer, Prophylaxe oder Therapie und unerwünschte Wirkung. Fragen der Dosierung bei eingeschränkter Organfunktion müssen beachtet werden. In einem interdisziplinären Gespräch zwischen Vertretern der operativen Fächer, Mikrobiologen, Hygienikern, Immunologen und Pharmakologen werden in diesem Buch Empfehlungen über den Einsatz von Antibiotika in der täglichen Routine erarbeitet. Ein Kapitel ist dem Problem der Probengewinnung und ihres Transportes und der Interpretation der mikrobiologischen Befunde gewidmet. Speziell abgehandelt werden die Idee der selektiven Darmdekontamination und Fragen des Einsatzes von Immunglobulinen in Kombination mit Antibiotika.

Laufsteg nach Guantánamo Seine Religion sind Glamour, Sex und Drogen. Wenn es um Geschmack geht, ist er radikal. Aber nicht deswegen findet sich Modedesigner Boy Hernandez von einem Tag auf den anderen in Guantánamo wieder. Was allerdings die wahren Gründe dafür sind, wieso aus seinem Traum, der größte Designer aller Zeiten zu werden, der absolute Alptraum geworden ist, kann sich Boy selbst am allerwenigsten erklären. Boy Hernandez hat es von der Modeschule in Manila nach New York geschafft. Seine Kreationen werden in einem Atemzug mit Comme des Garçons und Vivienne Westwood genannt. Nun sitzt er in Guantanamo. Die Anklage: Beteiligung an einer islamistischen Verschwörung. Dabei ist Boy nicht einmal religiös – jedenfalls solange Glamour, Sex und Drogen nicht als Religion gelten. Und radikal ist er nur, wenn es um guten Geschmack geht. Dennoch scheinen alle an seine Schuld zu glauben: Die Presse nennt ihn »Fashion-Terrorist«, seine Ex feiert mit ihrem Stück »Im Bett mit dem Feind« Erfolge am Broadway. Nur Boy selbst versucht verzweifelt zu begreifen, wie aus seinem Traum, der größte Designer aller Zeiten zu werden, der absolute Alptraum werden konnte.
