A concise review of the core principles and clinical entities associated with nephrology at the point of care.

"This is an absolutely wonderful book and excellent for medical students, physician assistants, and trainees in all the medical disciplines. It differs from other handbooks or concise manuals by providing more detailed coverage of the fundamental pathophysiology and basic science behind each disorder, which facilitates understanding. The leading questions, highlighting key points in a colorful manner, the numerous figures and algorithms, and the easy-to-read style make this book rather unique. Although the width of the pages is wider than the usual handbooks and does not make this book a true "pocket" book, the larger font and the addition of all the tables and figures make it much easier to read. I highly recommend this book to students and trainees rotating on the nephrology service."--Doody's Review Service

Covers all major acute and chronic kidney diseases, from acid/base disturbances to stones to end stage renal disease. Features a concise, manageable format with recommended timeframes for mastering the content, case studies, and summary tables. Perfect for trainees and practicing non-specialists.
