This companion to Brenner and Rector's The Kidney offers a concise, practical approach to acid-base and electrolyte disorders, emphasizing pathophysiology and its link to a logical diagnostic approach in treating these disorders. Unlike other traditional textbooks on the subject, ACID BASE AND ELECTROLYTE DISORDERS, focuses less on physiological and pathophysiological concepts and more on providing specific recommendations for therapy and patient care - resulting in an excellent clinical resource that is also an ideal core curriculum or exam review. Many of the topics in this book are not covered in any other resource, including acid-base and electrolyte disorders in the critical care setting. In addition, recent advances in fast-developing areas such as genetic and molecular biology are discussed in detail.

  • Emphasizes acid-base and electrolyte abnormalities in the critical care setting - a topic not fully covered in any other resource.
  • Includes the most up-to-date information on hot topics such as molecular biology and genetics of tubular transport abnormalities, hypertension, and calcium, sodium, and potassium homeostasis.
  • Authors and contributors are experts in their field, providing the most authoritative information available.
  • Figures and tables throughout the book help clarify important concepts.
  • A detailed reference list for each chapter directs the reader to sources for further information, and readers are referred back to Brenner and Rector's The Kidney for complete discussions the complex physiology of certain disorders.
