Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0412313103, Hardcover)

"Renal Dialysis" provides an overview of current clinical practice. The last decade has seen a rapid rise in the number of patients being treated for end stage renal failure. Advances in the field have broadened the scope of treatment to embrace not only the young and middle aged but also the elderly and those with additional disabilities such as diabetes mellitus and spina bifida. This volume, after reviewing the basic principles of dialysis, looks at the various types available and examines their different merits. The complications that can arise, both in the short and long term, are discussed in detail and solutions are offered where available. A chapter is also included on socio-economic and psychological aspects of dialysis. With the emphasis throughout on current issues, including details of new equipment, this book should be of practical value to nephrologists and other physicians involved in the care of patients with renal disease. This book should be of interest to nephrologists, physicians with a special interest in renal disease.
