Description

Written by three specialists of international repute, Fast Facts: Renal Disorders provides the key information required for the optimal care of renal patients.

Early detection of renal problems coupled with the appropriate therapeutic strategy can radically reduce the progressive nature of, and complications associated with, chronic kidney disease, and in many instances will result in the successful treatment of acute kidney injury.

Since many patients will not be seen by nephrologists, it is essential that all healthcare professionals, in hospitals and in the community, have an awareness of renal disease – the presenting signs, differential diagnoses, treatment strategies, and approach to the management of complications.

Fast Facts: Renal Disorders is an easy-to-read, evidence-based guide to renal diseases and disorders for all doctors, nurses, and medical students. It includes:

  • A clear explanation of proteinuria, hematuria, electrolyte imbalances, and acid–base disorders
  • A concise summary of kidney function tests, imaging techniques, and biopsy
  • Important questions for prompt diagnosis of acute kidney injury
  • Management options for chronic kidney disease and its complications
  • Practical guidance on the most common renal problems, including glomerulonephritis, systemic disease, UTIs, and kidney stones

This fully updated second edition will help healthcare professionals assess, identify, treat, and refer patients with renal problems appropriately. Directly applicable to the clinical setting, it is essential reading for all primary care providers, junior hospital doctors, specialist trainees, renal nurses, and medical students.
