Book Description

January 15, 1994 0070536635 978-0070536630 4 Sub
The underlying premise of this text is that clinical disturbances of acid-base and electrolyte balance are most effectively managed by understanding the basic principles of renal and electrolyte physiology. Toward that end the text begins with a review of normal renal function and extrarenal fluids and regulatory processes. Next, the major disorders of acid-base and electrolyte balance are reviewed with concise summaries of etiology, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. Discussion of pathophysiology of each disorder is cross-referenced to earlier chapters to tie together basic principles and clinical applications.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Review of How the Kidney Works August 23, 1998
Format:Paperback
This book describes renal physiology and the regulation of water and electrolyte balance and then reviews various disorders of the above. The author takes a difficult subject and puts it into simple terms and gives excellent examples of the clinical implication of various renal physiologic mechanisms. There are several problems and solutions for each disorder, and these are also helpful in solidifying knowledge. The detail and physiology probably make this book most suitable for clinical and research fellows in nephrology but medical students and residents would find it useful as well. The price makes the book a real value given the amount of excellent information the book contains.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best April 6, 2005
Format:Paperback
This is the best clinical physiology text one can buy. Rose has such a beautifully elegant writing style that you will not want to put this book down. I kid you not, this is the only book you will need to understand fluids, electrolytes and acid/base physiology. This text book is filled with repetition all in the hopes of having the reader understand. Fluid and acid/base can be incredibly complicated but this book clearly shows how everthing actually makes sense. Fluid and electrolytes in my opinion are the hub for medicine - this book will get you rolling. Man, they need a gold-bound edition for this bad boy. All kidding aside if you are a fan of Guyton...you'll be a fan of Rose.

4.0 out of 5 stars All you need to know is here June 25, 2002
Format:Paperback
This is a one stop book. Renal physiology and Acid-Base Balance is explained in detail and in simple terms. Author provides various scenarios for each condition. Implications of each change in renal physiology is described in many occasions.book is divided into four section and after brief introduction major part of the book is about regulation of water and electrolyte and best part is the final chapter where acid-base disorders are explained with physiologic concepts. Relatively thick book on a single subject and therefore coverage is very good yet it is it is very easy to read and understand.Another good part is that each chapter has few questions and you can check yourself with answers provided at the end of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough and easy to read June 16, 2008
Format:Paperback
As a medical student with an interest in nephrology and acid-base disorders, this book provides a readable but rigorous discussion of the subject. Chapters are well-organized and do not have to be read in order - they are written to be independently referenced as the need arises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book For All Levels September 2, 2007
Format:Paperback
I am currently studying medicine and got this book to help get a handle on the renal system and acid-base topics. I found it easy to understand, with good detail and lots of extra information. The case studies are a great way to illustrate the different conditions. I would definitely recommend it if you are keen to get a handle on (or master) acid-base and electrolyte physiology and disorders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction April 12, 2007
Format:Paperback
An impressively lucid and detailed account of renal physiology, with a close focus on the clinical causes and implications.It is intensely practical, with up to date references (at time of publication) and sifting exerecises at the end of each chapter.

It is precisely what far too many 'nephrologists' have all but forgotten in their obsession with immunology, studying the aetiology of injury is all well, but without a text like this it's difficult to appreciate the intricacy, beauty and sheer majesty of renal physiology. Can you tell the difference between tubulo-glomerular feedback and glomerulotubular balance? - shame on the 'forensic pathologists' who can't! This book will provide rapid relief.

Format:Paperback
No doubt, this is a terrific textbook and is a great resource for Nephrology fellows, ICU fellows and general physiologists. However, for the med student or housestaff who would like to digest the basics of renal electrolyte handling and acid-base homeostasis, I'd like to recommend "Renal Pathophysiology the Essentials" by B.D. Rose and H.G. Rennke (ISBN: 0683073540). It is from 1994 and may lack some of the molecular details, but is an even more "readable" text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for some June 26, 2010
Format:Paperback
This is a complete introduction to acid-base and fluid-electrolyte problems. Simple and yet detailed enough to answer most questions. Indispensable for the nephrology trainee and practicing nephrologist.

While this is a must read for renal fellows, its an excellent resource for both medical students and internal medicine residents. Several chapters are also available in the nephrology section of UpToDate as chapters on physiology if you just need to refer to a section of the book.
