Overview

In a self-study format that focuses on basic and clinical information as well as background science, this review introduces common disorders as they would be encountered in practice or on rounds. Conditions described include sodium and water imbalance, the effects of diuretics, intravenous fluid replacement, potassium homeostasis, metabolic acidosis and alkalosis, respiratory and mixed acid-base disturbances, and disorders of serum calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. It also presents conditions such as acute renal failure, chronic kidney disease, glomerular diseases, tubulointestinal diseases, obstruction of the genitourinary tract, urinary tract infection, and hypertension. Each section includes a summary of key points for quick reference, a variety of treatment options, and resources for further study. Although written for professionals, practitioners may also find this useful for discussions with patients. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

'Nephrology in 30 days' is by far the best book in its subject. After reading this book, in literally about 30 days, I had expanded my knowledge of the interesting study of nephrology. This book is a quick way to learn a great medical study.
