“Chronic Kidney Disease; Dialysis; and Transplantation: A Companion to Brenner and Rector’s The Kidney 4e this is a crucial ebook; especially the first two sections on recognising and managing progressive chronic kidney disease. This growing patient population will require appropriate management by primary care physicians; and educational resources like this one are a good option. The following sections are more appropriate for nephrologists; but they provide easy-to-read information on the latest trends in advanced CKD management; followed by a review of acute kidney injury diagnosis and management.” — Doody’s Review Service’s Jon Webb; MD
“This is the fourth edition of a textbook written by well-known nephrology; hypertension; and kidney transplantation experts; clinicians; and researchers.
It is intended for physicians and other allied health professionals who are interested in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its complications.
The editors used a consistent; comprehensive; and easy-to-read format; emphasizing the most recent understanding of CKD based on recently published literature. Unlike some other reference textbooks on the subject; this one is less encyclopedic and focuses primarily on CKD-related material.
The format of the book is appealing and user-friendly. In keeping with technology and interactive learning; the publishers have made an electronic version of the book available to readers via the ExpertConsult website. This one-of-a-kind feature allows the user to print material as well as a link to online databases such as MEDLINE and PubMed by clicking on the references at the end of each chapter…..Chronic Kidney Disease; Dialysis; and Transplantation will be of particular interest to CKD clinicians and readers; especially nephrologists; nephrology fellows-in-training; internists; and family practitioners.
Similarly; other allied health professionals who work with CKD will benefit greatly from this textbook. The ebook is a good introduction to the bread-and-butter issues encountered in most nephrology practices; whether in academic settings or the private sector; for medical students; interns; and residents planning to pursue subspecialty training in nephrology. I strongly believe it should be made available in all medical school libraries.” — Dr. Edgar Lerma; JAMA
