Very concise and well written book.
Steve
This book is not simple enough for non medical doctors nor is it sufficiently complete to be of great use to nephrology fellows.
Amazon Customer
I highly recommend this book to all 3rd year medical students still doing lectures or already in their rotations.

This book is great! Its small size keeps it from being intimidating, and it is short enough that you can cram two nights before the exam. (I did!) In our classes, the attending nephrologists swore by this book. They use it on their floors to teach their nephrology fellows and residents about these often-misunderstood topics. It clearly answers most of your questions about how to keep acids and bases straight as well as the guidelines for hypokalemia, hyperkalemia, hyponatremia, and hypernatremia. For a smaller book, it packs a big punch!

This is another great edition to the MRS series that i think is a must have for medical students. I havent finished reading the book yet but so far i really like it. Fluids and acid-base physiology and pathology is one of the most important concepts in medicine. Most text books i've read offer a very detailed and hard to understand approach to these concepts. This book breaks it down easily and simplifies important concepts. That for me, is the most important factor to consider when selecting any review book. I highly recommend this book to all 3rd year medical students still doing lectures or already in their rotations. The book is a quick and fast revisit to one of the most commonly used concepts in medicine, irrespective of your field in medicine.

Very concise and well written book. As an RN in a Medical ICU, acid-base disorders, sodium and other electrolyte disorders are commonplace. This book helps tremendously in understanding this subject

This book was a really good book to make acid-base interpretation easier to understand. I would suggest it to any student that is having trouble understanding the subject.

I'm a 2nd year medical student and I read through this book over a couple days during my kidney block. It is short and an easy read so it was a nice supplement to our course material. I really liked that it contained numerous practice problems at the end of each chapter to illustrate the main points. I would definitely recommend this to other 1st or 2nd year medical students looking for an outside source on this material. I think that at any higher level you will need a much more detailed source. But at this level I found it very useful. Great price too.
