Keeping you current with the latest in dialysis treatment and equipment, Review of Hemodialysis for Nurses and Dialysis Personnel, 8th Edition provides a practical introduction to dialysis and an excellent review for the certification exam. It assumes no prior knowledge of patient care, nursing procedures, or dialysis principles, using a question-and-answer format to discuss the basic principles, basic diseases, and basic problems found in the treatment of kidney patients by dialysis. Dialysis expert Judy Kallenbach writes in a clear, easy-to-read style, explaining topics such as the chemistry of body fluid and electrolytes, renal failure, nutrition, infection control, and the important psychosocial aspects of dialysis treatment.

  • Easy-to-understand language introduces new terms and concepts, not assuming prior knowledge of dialysis.
  • A question-and-answer format makes information easy to find and easy to read.
  • Comprehensive coverage provides the knowledge needed to care for dialysis patients and to prepare for the certification exam, with topics including a review of fluid and electrolytes, transplantation, infection control, and the important psychosocial aspects of dialysis treatment.
  • More than 60 illustrations depict all aspects of dialysis treatment and care.
  • A multidisciplinary approach includes a chapter on the different roles in the hemodialysis team, describing how dialysis care is coordinated and what patients go through during their treatment.
  • Coverage of the entire lifespan helps in caring for patients of different ages, including separate chapters on pediatric hemodialysis and end-stage renal disease in the elderly.
  • A discussion of home dialysis therapies prepares you for a time when cost cutting may lead to a wider use of home dialysis treatment.
  • Useful appendices offer quick reference to organizations and resources, pound-to-kilogram conversions, a glossary, and more.
  • New Math Calculations chapter helps in accurately programming goals for dialysis patients.
  • New Test Taking Guidelines chapter offers tips and strategies to prepare you for the certification exam.
  • Updated coverage includes the latest on water treatment, infection control, patient assessment, and the plan of care, with additional information on the management of quality and professional boundaries.
  • Coverage of revised regulations from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) updates the requirements for reimbursement for services provided to federally insured patients, with changes in areas such as patient safety, infection control, water and dialysate quality, facility design, patient care, patient plan of care, performance improvement, and personnel qualifications.

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0199651612]

Fully revised and expanded for its second edition, the Oxford Handbook of Nephrology and Hypertension provides clear, concise information and practical guidance on the day-to-day management of patients with renal disease. It is the essential resource for all those working with renal patients, including specialist trainees in nephrology, foundation doctors, renal nurses and general practitioners. A vital practical guide for those on the wards, and a valuable resource for all those studying for exams, this is the must-have handbook of renal medicine.

Based on the Oxford Textbook of Clinical Nephrology and companion to the Oxford Handbook of Dialysis, this handbook provides vital clinical knowledge on the full breadth of renal care. The chapters on AKI and CKD have been significantly expanded to represent their enhanced primacy in both primary and secondary care. The recent shift in understanding from acute renal failure to AKI has led to fast-paced change, and this handbook has been specifically revised to ensure the reader is up-to-the-minute in this vital area of renal care. Renal transplantation has also greatly increased in volume and complexity in recent years and a full chapter has been given to this important area, which has been thoroughly updated and greatly expanded.

Understanding Kidney Diseases 1st ed. 2016 Edition

3319234579

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=3319234579]

This text aids medical students and trainee doctors in developing their knowledge of the conditions covered and improving their ability to clinically assess patients and formulate a management plan. Once doctors are comfortable in interpreting these graphs, they can use them in consultations with patients about their kidney condition and so support self-management by patients, an increasingly important aspect of healthcare. Kidney diseases and the speciality of nephrology have traditionally been regarded as difficult to understand. This is compounded by the use of complex definitions and terminology.  These complex definitions result from a need to categorise kidney diseases according to the way kidney function changes over time, and then to express this in numbers and words.  Central to the assessment of patients is the measurement of kidney function. In our teaching of medical students and trainee doctors, as well as in our clinical practice and interaction with GPs and consultant colleagues, we have found that viewing graphs of patients’ kidney function (estimated glomerular filtration rate, or eGFR) against time is a much easier way of understanding kidney diseases. It provides the patient’s ‘kidney history’ and leads into a description of the natural history and management of their condition.   We were surprised to find that this graphical approach is not used routinely in teaching or in daily clinical practice. We therefore believe there is a need for a book that uses this approach and we thus sought to compile a collection of illustrative case studies covering an array of disease categories, together with patients’ eGFR readings.

Renal Physiology: A Clinical Approach (Integrated Physiology)

0781795249

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0781795249]

The complexity and copious number of details that must be mastered in order to fully understand renal physiology makes this one of the most daunting and intimidating topics covered in the first year of medical school. Although this is often only a 2-4 week module during the general physiology course, it is essential that students understand the foundations of renal physiology, and general physiology texts are often not detailed enough to provide students with what they need to master this difficult subject.

This first edition, and third volume in the Integrated Physiology Series, offers students a clear, clinically oriented overview of renal physiology. The lecture-style format, conversational tone, and final Integration chapter offset the difficult and intimidating nature of the subject. Chapter outlines, learning objectives, and end-of-chapter summaries highlight key concepts for easier assimilation. Other pedagogical features include clinical cases, Thought Questions, Putting It Together sections, Editor’s Integration boxes, review Q&A, and online animations — all designed specifically to reinforce clinical relevance and to challenge the student in real-world problem-solving.
