Using patient-based problem solving, this text makes even the most difficult points of acid-base physiology clear. The writing style is breezy and entertaining and the layout allows you to pop in and out of various sections without the need to start from scratch. I have used the text for teaching medical students, residents and physician assistants. There is something in here for everyone. The authors' philosophy is obviously that acid-base problems are giant jig-saw puzzles and that you might as well have fun while working them.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best text on integrative physiology out there October 19, 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is probably one of the best textbooks on integrative physiology involving electrolytes on the market. Dr. Halperin is a phenomenal instructor and his prose makes learning interactive and interesting. Electrolytes are key to clinical medicine and surprisingly not very well understood by the medical masses. This textbook is full of examples, questions, and pearls.

The abundance of questions with thorough explanations is the strength of this book. An understanding of electolytes including urine electrolytes will be gained from the study of this text.

The target audience is really the physician with an already good grounding in acid-base disorders. It will allow one to build on past knowledge and to solidy any foundation that has already been established. I am really and truly impressed with this book and I refer to it often.

5.0 out of 5 stars An indispensible part of my clinical library. May 28, 2008
As a nephrologist and educator, I can say that this is the absolute best book available for learning and teaching fluid, electrolytes, and acid base. Takes a pathophysiologic approach throughout that facilitates true understanding of the subject. Drs. Haperin and Goldstein are the ultimate clinical educators in this area.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very thorough review, but missing the big picture. November 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very thorough review of acid-base and electrolyte and fluid physiology. All aspects do have a detailed explanation. There are many illustrations describing details of each subject, but I do miss a combined and much bigger illustration including all the minor illustrations that would greatly help me getting the oversight of the subject. It does tend to gain focus on details missing the big picture.
