Description

The 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, 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 - pharmacists, dieticians, intensivists, and even medical students! The book has been arranged in sections covering new patients with end-stage renal failure (pre-dialysis), haemodialysis, nursing haemodialysis patients, peritoneal dialysis, nursing peritoneal dialysis patients, nutrition on dialysis, special situations, complications of dialysis, death in dialysis patients, drug use and dosing in renal failure and a summary of the US DOQI and UK Renal Association standards documents. Each section is subdivided so that individual topics appear on single pages where possible. The book is patient centred, practical, and thus didactic.
