A detailed survey of the biochemistry and physiology of body fluids and renal function relevant to clinical interpretation of disorders of hydration, acid-base equilibrium, osmolality, and the main body electrolytes. Directly clinical considerations take up about half of the text. This edition expands attention to renal tubular processes, clarifies interpretation of the plasma creatinine concentration and the anion gap, updates considerations of lactic acidosis and correction of hyponatremia, and carries a separate chapter on diuretics. Well documented; thoroughly indexed.
