FCCS: Tropical Diseases




The FCCS: Tropical Diseases textbook is the latest addition to the Fundamentals product line and is available in print or as an eBook.

The Fundamental Critical Care Support (FCCS) program has expanded its scope of course offerings to include this textbook developed to assist healthcare providers unfamiliar with the detection and treatment of tropical diseases. The textbook will be available with didactic lectures in a course format in the near future.

Early recognition of signs and symptoms are crucial to the diagnosis and management of patients infected with tropical diseases. The text is appropriate for primary care physicians, emergency physicians, residents and fellows, physicians’ assistants, nurses, and other personnel who may care for patients with infectious tropical diseases.

Prepared under the direction of SCCM by an international team of leading multiprofessional critical care educators in emergency medicine, infectious diseases, and internal medicine, FCCS: Tropical Diseases covers:

  • Chikungunya virus disease
  • Dengue fever
  • Ebola virus disease
  • Hemorrhagic fevers: Marburg and Lassa viruses
  • Leptospirosis
  • Severe malaria
  • Typhoid fever
  • Viral encephalitis
  • Yellow fever
  • Zika virus infection
Pricing for FCCS: Tropical Diseases is $25 USD for nonmembers and $15 USD for SCCM members. Single-copy purchases can be made through the SCCM store. A Spanish version of FCCS: Tropical Diseases will be available in late 2017.
