Acute renal failure in the critically ill
This book is a comprehensive "state-of-the-art" review of current knowledge in a growing area of intensive care and nephrology. It addresses the pathology and pathophysiology of acute renal failure in the critically ill and reviews in detail all known mechanisms of renal injury in these patients. The approach to prevention from renal injury and the physiology of renal recovery are also discussed. The book deals with a number of practical clinical issues from rhabdomyolysis to drug-induced renal failure, from heparorenal syndrome to nutrition, and from pediatric issues to drug use and dosage in these patients. Finally it focuses on all the issues related to hemodialysis and hemofiltration and discusses the pros and cons of different forms of renal replacement.
