Overview

An innovative, organ-specific text that blends basic science with the fundamentals of clinical medicine

Part of the Human Organ Systems series, Renal: An Integrated Approach to Disease skillfully bridges the gap between the science and practice of medicine. This beautifully illustrated book seamlessly integrates the core elements of cell biology, anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and pathology, with clinical medicine. It is the perfect companion for medical students transitioning to their clinical years, as well as practicing physicians who need a user-friendly update on the basic science underlying the practice of clinical medicine.

Features and highlights include:

  • Detailed learning objectives clearly state learning goals
  • Core content emphasizes concepts and incorporates the latest developments in the field
  • Beautifully illustrated with detailed legends to clarify important or difficult concepts
  • Abundant clinical example boxes highlight the clinical implications of basic science
  • Each chapter is accompanied by an annotated bibliography to provide an overview of the critical literature in the field
  • A bulleted summary at the end of each chapter highlights the “big picture” and facilitates preparation for standardized exams
  • End-of-chapter case-based questions with detailed explanations reinforce important concepts and assess mastery of the material

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jon Webb, MD (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive review of the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the renal system.
Purpose: The goal is to provide a reference for teaching an overview of the renal system. More specifically, this book is designed as a course resource for schools that use an organ-based approach to teaching.
Audience: This is an excellent tool for medical students transitioning to their clinical years, medical residents, or nephrology fellows. The colorful display and succinct reviews will also attract busy practitioners, including nephrologists.
Features: The 21 chapters begin with a basic overview of core sciences detailing renal anatomy and renal physiology. Subsequent sections focus on clinical scenarios, with an emphasis on electrolytes, acid-base, intrinsic kidney disease, acute disease, chronic disease, and hypertension. Each chapter is designed for easy reading and has colorful figures and images to support the content. Learning objectives detail the purpose of each chapter and clinical implications provide relevant information for practicing physicians. Key points summarize the chapter and questions that end each chapter include excellent detailed answers.
Assessment: This is a very useful resource for students of nephrology. The book covers the entire scope of the renal system from anatomy and physiology to important clinical diseases. Given the task, expansive details are limited, but given the purpose, the most useful and helpful mechanisms of disease are included. The book's design enables a quick glance for topics of interest and highlights succinct and important points. I would recommend this for academic nephrologists and nephrology fellows, but mainly for residents and students on nephrology rotations.
