Overview

This text covers all of the essential points of renal physiology in a concise presentation and provides an essential tool for introducing concepts or reviewing basic information. Extensive use of tables, diagrams, and illustrations aids comprehension. The focus on core concepts, end-of-chapter summaries, and the clinical content and emphasis make this an excellent learning tool. Includes relevant content on the kidney with regards to the new genetic and molecular information available. Also features a new exam for self testing.

The book contains predominantly two-color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Raymond Hall
This well balanced renal physiology text is one of a series of monographs published on physiological subjects. The information is current and well organized. The book provides a basic understanding of the fundamental concepts of normal renal function with an emphasis on clinical relevance. It serves well as an additional source along with one of the current textbooks of medical physiology or it can be used as the primary text for renal physiology. It is well suited for health professional students, including those in medicine and dentistry. It also serves as a useful review for practicing healthcare professionals. The authors develop all of the basic renal concepts in a fluid and well organized manner. The various concepts are well integrated. The tables and drawings are only in one color but are well chosen and easy to understand. The book is truly designed with the student in mind. Each chapter begins with objectives and ends with a summary, a list of key words, and self-study problems. Additional aids include reading references for each chapter, integrative case studies, and two review examinations. The index is thorough and useful. Although there are several renal monographs available, because of this book's readability, depth, and breadth of coverage, I highly recommend this one as the textbook of choice.
