Doody’s Review Service Review by Sumit Narula, MD (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)

This is the fifth edition of a concise, yet comprehensive review of all the modalities of dialysis and associated complications and clinical management. The ebook version that accompanies the book is user friendly and covers most of the information in the book. The goal is to provide a review of the commonly used dialysis modalities and management of associated issues. The book begins with a chapter on evaluation of predialysis patients, followed by thorough discussions of dialysis physiology, various dialysis modalities, and dialysis catheter complications. Finally, it addresses common psychosocial and medical conditions afflicting dialysis patients.

This will be an excellent tool for residents, renal fellows, general nephrologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and internists. The book provides concise yet thorough information on the management of dialysis patients based on current evidence and practice guidelines. It also covers dialysis management in children and during pregnancy and includes a chapter on the management of bone disease. The 40 chapters are divided into four parts. The first part discusses management of advanced CKD patients and their transition into dialysis, renal transplant, or palliative care. The next 18 chapters discuss the basics of hemodialysis and dialysis access, followed by complications. The next part has extensive discussions of peritoneal dialysis, while the final part addresses the medical conditions and psychosocial issues affecting dialysis patients. Each chapter provides a concise though complete description of dialysis with its associated condition with tables and pathological figures where appropriate. All chapters include references and suggested readings. As the name suggests, the handbook delivers precise information on all aspects of dialysis. Simple tables and figures are used appropriately and increase the ease of reading. Although this book is well known in the nephrology community, it will be a useful tool for nurse practitioners and physician assistants for understanding the core concepts of the various modalities of dialysis. Care of dialysis patients requires a multifaceted approach and the handbook serves its purpose by covering all the important aspects that concern dialysis patients. The attempt to compare delivery of dialysis internationally also broadens the knowledge base and deepens understanding of dialysis patient management. I would recommend this book to anyone who aspires to completely grasp the basic as well as advanced concepts for management of dialysis patients.

Neonatal Infections: Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Management

 Nephrology, Pathology, Physiology  Comments Off on Neonatal Infections: Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Management
Jul 052018
 

There are approximately 4 million newborns annually in the United States, including 400,000 infants born preterm. This care occurs in nurseries of all acuity levels, sizes, and regions across the country and is provided by a variety of providers, including pediatricians, family practice doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
The most common complication during the newborn period is suspected or proven infection – either those acquired during the delivery itself or before delivery in the womb. Indeed, 4 of the 8 most commonly-prescribed medications in newborns annually are antibiotics. Therefore, these providers must all be knowledgeable about the clinical presentation, epidemiology, and approach to diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neonatal infections. However, many of these nurseries do not have convenient access to pediatric infectious disease consultation or support, and would benefit from a convenient reference guide.
This book effectively and succinctly covers the pathophysiology, epidemiology, clinical presentation, approach to diagnosis and treatment, and important aspects of preventative care for the most frequently encountered neonatal and congenital infections. The first section discusses common neonatal infections (i.e., those acquired during or after delivery), including sepsis, meningitis, pneumonia, and other focal infections. The second section covers the most frequently encountered congenital infections (i.e., those acquired via the placenta while the fetus is still in-utero). Finally, the concluding section discusses the basics of infection prevention in the nursery setting, including general principles of infection prevention, how to apply those principles to families, and how to manage a suspected outbreak of infection within a nursery.
This book is a unique contribution to the field. Existing texts such as the AAP Red Book fold neonatal infections in within chapters on a given pathogen, but the information is difficult to find and access quickly. By covering neonatal and congenital infections thoroughly while still keeping each section clear and concise, this Handbook will be a valuable resource for the busy nursery provider.

200 Best of Five Questions for Nephrology Specialty Certificate Exam with Revision Notes and Guidelines (2017 Release)

 Nephrology  Comments Off on 200 Best of Five Questions for Nephrology Specialty Certificate Exam with Revision Notes and Guidelines (2017 Release)
Jun 302018
 

Introduced in 2010, the Nephrology SCE (Specialty Certificate Examination)
is compulsory for the Nephrology trainees to gain a CCT (Certificate of Completion of Training) in the Specialty. Candidates who have sat for the exam with their written MRCP are familiar with the best of five formats where they select the best of five plausible and comparable answers. This requires both knowledge and exam technique that is often best achieved through practice questions.

Currently, difficulty of exam preparation is the unavailability of reliable practice questions. This book seeks to fill that void by providing the best of five questions that resemble the exam format with their explanatory answers. The question material was written with the 2010 syllabus in mind and based on contemporary guidelines from KDIGO, KDOQI, ISPD and Renal Association.

Our goal was to create a valuable tool for all trainees revising for the SCE exam, American Board of Nephrology and Arab Board of Nephrology Exam.

Our authors were supported by consultants in the region and we offer our thanks to them all.
We would like to extend our gratitude to our parents and families. Without their support, blessings and encouragement this would not be possible.

We acknowledge the graciousness of our patients who consented the publishing of their pictures for education purposes. We would also like to credit Dr. Ramesh Abdullah for providing renal histology slides from his personal collection.

Finally, much appreciation is given to Professor Philip Kalra for providing his inspirational commentary for this book.
