The updated 5th edition of the Handbook of Dialysis is full of evidence-based, practical information on all aspects of dialysis training and therapy. Authored by international nephrology experts, each chapter addresses a different area of the clinical realities of patient management. Topics include screening, diagnosis and management of dialysis patients, including diagnostic work-ups, patient safety, and patient monitoring issues in acute dialysis and hemodialysis cases. This is the essential dialysis manual, filled with up-to-date dialysis information, including preparation, procedures, surgery, problems and side-effects.
"I would recommend this book to anyone who aspires to completely grasp the basic as well as advanced concepts for management of dialysis patients."
-- Sumit Narula, MD (University of Kentucky College of Medicine) - Doody's Review
This will be an excellent tool for residents, renal fellows, general nephrologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and internists.
