Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jon Webb, MD (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: This is a reference for students and teachers in the fields of nephrology, hypertension, and kidney transplantation.
Purpose: The goal is to provide an educational resource for clinicians and students. The book is filled with questions typically asked during rounds or in the clinic, followed by detailed answers provided by leading experts.
Audience: This is a helpful resource for nephrologists and nephrology fellows, medical residents and interns, and medical students.
Features: An initial list of 100 board-review points summarize the concepts, principles, and details of nephrology. Topics include patient assessment, acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease, primary glomerular disorders, secondary glomerular disorders, infection-associated renal disease, dialysis options, transplantation, hypertension, and acid-base disorders. The book is well organized and easy to read. Several tables and figures enhance the text and key points are highlighted for quick review.
Assessment: This reference covers the field of nephrology, providing a quick, easy-to-follow and resource for both students and teachers. Each section provides a detailed response to basic questions and important concepts, with limited exposure to rare entities in nephrology. The design of the book allows a quick glance at topics of interest and provides succinct and important points. More advanced explanations and current ongoing research are not included, but this book is targeted at those beginning in the field of nephrology, preparing for exams in nephrology, and looking for teaching tools in the field.
