This unique pocket book provides rapid access to evidence-based guidelines and practical advice about the day-to-day management of patients with renal disease.
Consisting of twelve chapters, including clinical assessment, acute renal failure, chronic kidney disease, and renal replacement therapies, the handbook allows easy access to precise, prescriptive information. In line with contemporary nephrological practice, a significant portion of the handbook deals with the problem of hypertension, a major cardiovascular risk factor and the most common indication for prescription drug therapy. It is an invaluable resource for residents, as well as a useful reference for practitioners.
