A well-designed book using abundant diagrams and illustrations (similar to those found in the series designed by Dr. Frank Netter for CIBA) would be a useful adjunct text in the study of fluid and electrolyte disturbances. R. Douglas Collins has tried to write such a book in his Illustrated Manual of Fluid and Electrolyte Disorders, but the result is a poor, often inaccurate, and consistently superficial treatment of the subject.
This book is divided into six sections: normal physiology of various ions and water, the pathophysiologic effects of disturbances in fluid and electrolyte metabolism, the effects of various disease states
