Nephrology is an important speciality; patients with acute or chronic kidney failure are encountered in every medical and surgical speciality, as well as in general practice. On most general medical rotations and on most surgical wards there are patients with renal problems. Renal medicine is taught on rotation during degree courses, and Foundation training programmes frequently include attachments in nephrology, urology, and renal transplantation. Nephrology: Clinical Cases Uncovered contains clinical presentations with real-life patient cases and outcomes as seen on the wards and in exams, and leads students through a practical approach to diagnosis and management of kidney disease.
Following a question-answer approach, including self-assessment material and a ‘refresher’ section on the basic science of this clinical area, Nephrology: Clinical Cases Uncovered features investigations and the treatment options available for patients with renal disease, including those requiring renal replacement therapy with dialysis and transplantation. Difficult concepts are clarified, using simple diagrams to explain the link between pathology and clinical presentation.
Nephrology: Clinical Cases Uncovered is ideal for medical students, junior doctors on the Foundation Programme, GP trainees, and specialist nurses and nurse practitioners. This book is also a useful refresher for nephrology trainees at the beginning of their specialist training programme.
“This is a helpful resource for medical students, medicine interns and residents, and nephrology fellows, as well as a reference for teachers of nephrology … I would recommend this for academic nephrologists and nephrology fellows, but mainly for residents and students on nephrology rotations.” (Doody’s, 9 March 2012)
“The presentation is lively and the author’s experience and enthusiasm for teaching the subject over more than a decade is evident…This book should appeal not only to medical undergraduates but also to trainees in renal diseases and other related specialties.” (Journal of Tropical Pediatrics, January 2011)”The beauty of this book is that it translates a lot of the very dry information provided in traditional text books into real-life scenarios. The cases are interesting to read and you always like to see if your own management plan corresponds to the expert’s one. In summary this is a very useful book for all who work in renal medicine. The clear format makes it suitable for nurses as well as doctors, and explains the rationale behind a lot of the treatment decisions we make. Overall highly recommended.” (Journal of Renal Nursing, may 2010)
