Overview

Through case presentations and a question and answer format,Clinical Decisions in Nephrology, Hypertension and Renal Transplantation provides a state of the art, updated reference for the optimal management of patients with diseases of the kidneys, and hypertension. This volume starts with the assessment of the patient, focusing on history and physical examination. Subsequently, cases depicting various clinical syndromes and/or diseases are presented, with questions centering on the appropriate diagnostic and treatment strategy. This sets the stage for a ‘Socratic approach’ to learning between the attending physician and the house staff or medical student.

This is the only book featuring problem-oriented true to life clinical cases in this format to cover nephrology, hypertension and kidney transplantation. Written by renowned actively practicing clinicians, this unique reference is both comprehensive and concise and will be of great value to hospitalists and internists, as well as students, and interns/residents rotating in nephrology and internal medicine.Clinical practitioners, in the fields of critical care and hypertension specialists would also find this of value.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

“The goal is to provide a resource for medical residents and fellows on the variety of kidney diseases. This book is a helpful resource for physicians practicing in a variety of settings. … The book presents all the relevant information in fairly lucid manner without compromising on the details. … I would strongly recommend this book for nephrology fellows and medical residents who are interested in nephrology.” (Vamsi Rokkam, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2013)

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vamsi Rokkam, MD (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: Nephrology is fairly a complex subject requiring intimate knowledge of pathophysiology. Often, medical students, internists, and fellows feel overwhelmed by the complexity of the specialty. This book attempts to integrate that knowledge with clinical scenarios and clinical problem-solving.
Purpose: The goal is to provide a resource for medical residents and fellows on the variety of kidney diseases.
Audience: This book is a helpful resource for physicians practicing in a variety of settings. It is ideal for primary care physicians with an increasing patient population with chronic kidney disease, hospitalists who dealing with patients with acute renal failure and various electrolyte and metabolic disturbances, and for nephrology fellows and physicians who need to acquire a detailed knowledge of inpatient and outpatient nephrology.
Features: The 51 chapters are grouped into 11 parts, which are uniquely divided according to clinical scenarios. Readers can easily refer to the chapters based on the clinical scenarios they encounter. Each chapter is based on a case that is then expanded into a discussion. The book presents all the relevant information in fairly lucid manner without compromising on the details.
Assessment: The case presentations are a great way to hold the attention of readers and make the subject interesting. This book held my attention better than most of the textbooks on the market; the presentation makes all the difference. I would strongly recommend this book for nephrology fellows and medical residents who are interested in nephrology.
