With a clear, comprehensive approach, this quick-reference handbook on the basic principles of fluid, electrolyte and acid-base balances, imbalances and related disorders is a must-have for all nursing students.
"It is important for clinicians and nursing students to understand the physiological basis of fluid and electrolytes, and this book serves as a quick reference."

"I love this book. I finally understand ABGs and am able to remember due to the clear and concise way it is presented. I will use material from this book for most of the classes I teach and plan to put a copy on the units where students have clinicals."
