Electrolytes, Acid-Base Balance and Blood Gases: Clinical Aspects and Laboratory

Overview

The first part of this book describes in a condensed manner the current state of diagnosis and treatment of disorders of electrolyte balance. It provides the physician with both a rapid aid to orientation at the bedside as well as a comprehensive insight into the pathophysiological relationships involved. A separate section deals with electrolytes in the urine. In the subsequent chapters, preanalysis and analysis of electrolytes are discussed.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: In this laboratory reference, each of the major electrolytes is discussed in terms of the potential acid-base situation with excellent graphics to illustrate the points. The previous edition was published in 1996.
Purpose: The intent is to examine the medical significance of electrolytes, acids, bases, and blood gases, and the authors make an extremely easy to read, intuitive presentation. The subject is one that every medical student and resident struggles with at the beginning and the authors meet the need for a clear, concise summary.
Audience: While there are some in-depth discussions that are relevant for a clinician, the material is more oriented to laboratory personnel, particularly the quality assurance section and the specimen preparation sections. Having said that, the discussions are also well suited for beginner clinicians who are looking for explanations after becoming overwhelmed during rounds.
Features: The first chapter takes each of the electrolytes in serum and discusses the physiology of each, followed by the urinary excretion of the electrolyte and how to put the results into perspective. These are followed by the acid-base physiology and how the electrolytes are affected by the acidosis or alkalosis. The illustrations are well drawn, and the figures and tables easy to understood.
Assessment: This is a great reference for any library serving medical students and residents.
