Schrier: Manual of Nephrology: Diagnosis and Therapy 7th edition

The seventh edition of the Manual of Nephrology continues to focus on the practical clinical aspects of the diagnosis and management of patients with electrolyte and acid-base disorders, urinary tract infections, kidney stones, glomerulonephritis and vasculitis, acute or chronic renal failure, hypertension, hypertension and renal disease in pregnancy, and drug dosing with renal impairment. Because of the growing number of patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), separate chapters are now included on treatment by chronic renal replacement therapy with dialysis and kidney transplantation. The Manual of Nephrology should continue to be of excellent clinical value for those caregivers encountering patients with the above disorders. This would include house officers, medical students, primary care physicians, nephrology fellows, nurse practitioners, and busy subspecialists outside of nephrology.
