Overview

This companion to Brenner and Rector's The Kidney offers a concise, practical approach to acid-base and electrolyte disorders, emphasizing pathophysiology and its link to a logical diagnostic approach in treating these disorders. Unlike other traditional textbooks on the subject, ACID BASE AND ELECTROLYTE DISORDERS, focuses less on physiological and pathophysiological concepts and more on providing specific recommendations for therapy and patient care - resulting in an excellent clinical resource that is also an ideal core curriculum or exam review. Many of the topics in this book are not covered in any other resource, including acid-base and electrolyte disorders in the critical care setting. In addition, recent advances in fast-developing areas such as genetic and molecular biology are discussed in detail.

• Emphasizes acid-base and electrolyte abnormalities in the critical care setting - a topic not fully covered in any other resource.

• Includes the most up-to-date information on hot topics such as molecular biology and genetics of tubular transport abnormalities, hypertension, and calcium, sodium, and potassium homeostasis.

• Authors and contributors are experts in their field, providing the most authoritative information available.

• Figures and tables throughout the book help clarify important concepts.

• A detailed reference list for each chapter directs the reader to sources for further information, and readers are referred back to Brenner and Rector's The Kidney for complete discussions the complex physiology of certain disorders.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: B. Peter E. Sawaya, MD (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: This companion to the classic textbook, Brenner & Rector's The Kidney, 6th edition (W.B. Saunders, 2000), is specifically written to address practical approaches to the clinical disorders of acid-base and electrolyte abnormalities.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a concise and practical approach to the diagnosis and management of patients with acid-base and electrolyte abnormalities. Emphasis is placed on the logical linking of the pathophysiology to the diagnosis and therapy. Although there are numerous books addressing this particular subject, the editors and authors have diligently attempted to make this book rather unique by providing a practical resource for students and practicing clinicians. Specifically, unique chapters relevant to the critical care setting are presented and specific therapeutic recommendations are provided. In addition, recent advances in genetic and molecular understanding of various disorders are reviewed. The authors/editors have succeeded in achieving their goals.
Audience: This book is primarily written for medical students and trainees in various specialties, including nephrology. It would also be quite useful to a busy clinician dealing with acid-base and electrolyte abnormalities. A panel of over 50 internationally distinguished experts have contributed.
Features: The book is divided into five sections: acid-base disorders, disorders of water metabolism, sodium, potassium, and divalent ions. It contains numerous figures and tables that are of high quality and very easy to follow. The style of writing is focused, condensed yet simplified. A noticeable effort was made to use current material and incorporate the new with the old.
Assessment: This is a quality book that can be used by physicians at all levels of their training. The content is concise and clinically relevant. References are relatively recent and well chosen. The authors have succeeded in diligently linking the understanding of the pathophysiologic mechanisms of acid-base and electrolyte abnormalities to the proposed diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. This is not an easy task given the complexity of these disorders. I particularly recommend this book to trainees in nephrology and critical care medicine.
From The Critics
This companion volume to Brenner and Rector's The Kidney presents a practical approach to acid-base and electrolyte disorders, with a focus on specific recommendations for therapy and patient care (including the critical care setting). The 28 chapters by DuBose (U. of Kansas School of Medicine), Hamm (Tulane U. Health Sciences Center) and contributing experts also provide information on topics such as molecular biology and genetics of tubular transport abnormalities, hypertension, and calcium, sodium, and potassium homeostasis. Especially useful for medical students, endocrinologists, internists, and clinical nephrologists. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
