Book Description

December 8, 2006 0781752531 978-0781752534 4th

The revised, updated Fourth Edition of this popular handbook provides practical, accessible information on all aspects of dialysis, with emphasis on day-to-day management of patients. Chapters provide complete coverage of hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, special problems in dialysis patients, and problems pertaining to various organ systems.

This edition reflects the latest guidelines of the National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (KDOQI) on hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis adequacy and on nutrition. New chapters cover chronic kidney disease management in predialysis patients, frequent daily or nocturnal hemodialysis, and hemodiafiltration. Chapters on venous and arteriovenous access have been completely revised. Each chapter provides references to relevant Web sites.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nephrology 101 May 3, 2012
By javajoe
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book is extremely detailed, language is geared to healthcare personnel, not for the patient. Would not recommend as "light" reading. If you want to understand how dialysis works, this book is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best handbook of dialysis February 24, 2007
Format:Paperback
This is the best handbook of dialysis. This is equally true for the forth edition as for the first edition. You don't need to look for another concise book. No one sentence or word is redundant, every information is up-to-date. No doubt you can find there every practical information you are looking for.
