Description

Written by leading American practitioners, the Oxford American Handbooks of Medicine each offer a pocket-sized overview of an entire specialty, featuring instant access to guidance on the conditions that are most likely to be encountered. Precise and prescriptive, the handbooks offer up-to-date advice on examination, investigations, common procedures, and in-patient care. These books will be invaluable resources for residents and students, as well as a useful reference for practitioners. This unique pocket book provides rapid access to evidence-based guidelines and practical advice about the day-to-day management of patients with renal disease. Consisting of twelve chapters, including clinical assessment, acute renal failure, chronic kidney disease, and renal replacement therapies, the handbook allows easy access to precise, prescriptive information. In line with contemporary nephrological practice, a significant portion of the handbook deals with the problem of hypertension, a major cardiovascular risk factor and the most common indication for prescription drug therapy. It is an invaluable resource for residents, as well as a useful reference for practitioners. The Oxford American Handbook of Nephrology and Hypertension is the indispensable source on the subject right in your pocket!show more
