Acid-base and Electrolyte Disorders: A Companion to Brenner & Rector's the Kidney
Thomas D. DuBose, L. Lee Hamm
Saunders, 2002 - Medical - 547 pages
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.
