This thoroughly revised handbook is a compact but clear and comprehensive guide to all aspects of dialysis, from preparing patients for dialysis, details of both haemo - and peritoneal dialysis, to continuous haemofiltration techniques and complications of end stage renal disease. The book is aimed primarily at trainee nephrologists and renal nurses, but will be of relevance, use and interest to all other health care workers involved with patients with end stage renal disease such as pharmacists, dieticians, intensivists, and keen medical students. In this new edition, all sections have been completely updated and there are new sections on haemodiafiltration, new intradialytic monitoring techniques, new PD fluids, trials in haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, travel on dialysis, integrated care, role of predialysis nurses, supportive care, care of dying patients, pain control in ESRF, newer drugs such as darbepoietin, new vitamin D analogues, new anticoagulants and phosphate binders. The book is patient centred and practical, and therefore a useful guide when managing patients with end stage renal failure.
