Field of medicine: Clinical nephrology.
Format: Hardcover book.
Audience: Primary care physicians, generalists, nephrology fellows, housestaff, and medical students.
Purpose: To provide a comprehensive yet concise review of important topics in nephrology and to reduce confusion and improve understanding of clinical problems associated with various kidney diseases and hypertensive disorders.
Content: The book is organized into three parts, each of which emphasizes a different approach to similar clinical issues in nephrology. The first 4 chapters describe the major symptoms of common clinical renal and electrolyte disorders. The second section contains 10 chapters that build on the first 4 chapters and describe important physical and laboratory findings in clinical renal syndromes. The final section includes 18 chapters on the diagnosis and management of specific diseases, including the “bread-and-butter” disorders of nephrology (acute and chronic renal failure, hypertension, diabetic nephropathy, glomerular diseases, and nephrolithiasis) and less common yet important renal problems.
