Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

 "It is a concise guide to the management of patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) in acute and ambulatory care settings."

"It serves as a quick reference in the clinical setting, presenting well-organized guidelines for the management of patients with renal pathophysiology. Overall, it provides evidence-based and standard of care recommendations for completing a basic nephrology consult and would be a helpful tool during a resident rotation."

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jon Webb, MD (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: This is the third edition of a pocket-sized book of basic nephrology consult guidelines. The recommendations are based on clinical research findings published since the 2008 edition.
Purpose: It is a concise guide to the management of patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) in acute and ambulatory care settings. It is written by fellows and professors of nephrology with contributions from clinical pharmacists.
Audience: It is intended as a reference for medical students and residents, and as a primer for new nephrology fellows. The standardized format enables quick review in the clinical setting.
Features: The 28 chapters are grouped into six parts and address recognition and management of primary and secondary renal disease in adults, management of renal replacement modalities, care of the renal transplant recipient, and pharmacotherapy considerations in this patient population. Chapters in each part describe specific disease processes and detail essentials for patient management. The appendix contains dosing of medications to prevent nephrotoxicity and guidelines for dose adjustments of frequently prescribed medications in patients with reduced renal function. Special consideration is given to renal laboratory tests, diagnostic modalities, and electrolyte disorders. Since there is little review of renal physiology, readers must have basic knowledge about normal renal function and anatomy.
Assessment: While this does not replace more detailed and specialized books, it serves as a quick reference in the clinical setting, presenting well-organized guidelines for the management of patients with renal pathophysiology. Overall, it provides evidence-based and standard of care recommendations for completing a basic nephrology consult and would be a helpful tool during a resident rotation.
