Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Danilyn Amgeles, PhD, RN (Loma Linda University)
Description: This book covers the most essential elements of renal physiology. Instead of focusing on minute facts and details, the authors provide a clear but comprehensive discussion of mechanisms and processes pertinent to the kidney. Topics are presented in an organized manner, complete with easily understandable and relevant tables and figures.
Purpose: The book is an absolute must for beginning readers.
Audience: The book was written for students. From my point of view, it is a good book for medical students or any other students interested in patient care or renal physiology research.
Features: It covers renal anatomy, renal blood flow, glomerular filtration, functions of each segment of the nephron, control/regulation of water, sodium, potassium balance as well as other electrolytes. The book also covers the kidney's role in regulating blood pressure. Each of the chapters is well written and easy to understand. My favorite is the "clearance" chapter. It was presented in a clear and simple way. Shortcomings: there were tables that were incorrect — Figure 6-6 page 87 — transport proteins were incorrectly placed.
Assessment: This book offers a clear, simple but comprehensive discussion of renal physiology. Most books are either too superficial or too in-depth, leading to confusion on the part of readers. This book delivers the appropriate amount of information for the beginning reader.
