Overview

The presence of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) increases the risk of death from cardiovascular causes and makes the management of heart failure difficult. The coexistence of CKD and heart failure is increasing in prevalence worldwide and requires a unique and subtle approach to patient management.

Managing the Kidney in Heart Failure focuses on the therapeutic management of cardio renal patients. Common heart and kidney failure conditions are presented along with treatment scenarios aimed to reduce cardiovascular mortality and preserve kidney function.

Co-authored by a Nephrologist and Cardiologist, each chapter of this concise and practical handbook offers a unified perspective to these chronic conditions.
