Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is an interesting book written by physicians while they were students completing a kidney disease and hypertension pathophysiology course... This book is ideal as a fi rst step to study renal disease and also a useful revision aid for those with more in-depth knowledge. It manages to condense the most relevant information from longer text books into a comprehensive volume that is easy to index. It would make a useful addition to a ward or practice library for reference." Journal of Renal Nursing, November 2009
