Thoroughly updated and covers inpatient and outpatient management of nephrology with the same clinical practicality as the widely-popular Washington Manual™ of Medical Therapeutics.
This book has been written by the residents, fellows, and attending physicians of the distinguished Washington University School of Medicine and is tailored for residents performing inpatient consults, students working on an inpatient medicine service, and specialists seeking fast-access information on the management of common renal diseases.
Organized for quick and easy access to information, this handbook includes sections on general approaches to kidney disease, electrolyte and acid-base disorders, acute kidney injury and continuous renal replacement, causes of kidney disease, pregnancy and nephrolithiasis, and chronic kidney disease. Appendices include dosing adjustments for antimicrobials and antiretrovirals and a listing of red flag drugs that may cause renal impairment.
