Overview

This unique pocket book provides rapid access to evidence-based guidelines and practical advice about the day-to-day management of patients with renal disease.

In line with contemporary nephrological practice, a significant portion of the handbook deals with the problem of hypertension, a major cardiovascular risk factor and the most common indication for prescription drug therapy. It is an invaluable resource for residents, as well as a useful reference for practitioners. The Oxford American Handbook of Nephrology and Hypertension is the indispensable source on the subject.
