This book is an excellent exposition of the "Yale School" of fluid and electrolyte philosophy. As such it presents a fairly static view of the inorganic metabolism, and relies for therapeutic guidance to a great extent upon calculations of deficits based upon analyses of accessible body fluids which the author admits are grossly inadequate.
Outstanding in this book is the chapter on renal physiology, a field to which the author has made many valuable contributions. This, the longest chapter in the book, makes the volume a worthwhile addition to a clinical library.
The clinical discussions of various problems are good.
