Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Nancy Kern Feeley, RN, MS, CNN (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This book focuses on basic principles of kidney disease and dialysis and provides a unique question-and-answer format to explain content.
Purpose: The purpose is to "provide a general background, some basic principles, and a broad overview of dialysis and its application." The stated objective targets an audience of both new and experienced nurses, technicians, and patients. This sixth edition has an increased number of expert contributors and new content. The editors have met their objectives by providing a needed updated dialysis resource.
Audience: The targeted audiences are dialysis nurses, technicians, and patients. The book serves as a review of dialysis concepts for the experienced healthcare provider and is basic enough for the new dialysis nurse or technician. The dialysis patient may need additional information about normal human physiology in order to fully understand complications of chronic dialysis therapy. There are no significant omissions or duplications in content. The editors are all affiliated with teaching institutions and the contributors are multidisciplinary, which adds to the expertise of content.
Features: Some hemodialysis history, an overview of the hemodialysis process, patient and machine monitoring, and additional options such as peritoneal dialysis and transplantation are all covered. This is a multidisciplinary approach to dialysis adequacy, patient outcomes, and information technology. The glossary is especially useful for the patient audience.
Assessment: The book is medium-sized, which promotes easy handling. It is very well written, portraying hemodialysis as a team approach. Most texts in the dialysis field are written for only one audience. This sixth edition is worthwhile due to the rapidly changing healthcare system and new research that improves patient outcomes.
