“Chronic Kidney Disease, Dialysis, and Transplantation: A Companion to Brenner and Rector’s The Kidney 4e this is a crucial ebook, especially the first two sections on recognising and managing progressive chronic kidney disease. This growing patient population will require appropriate management by primary care physicians, and educational resources like this one are a good option. The following sections are more appropriate for nephrologists, but they provide easy-to-read information on the latest trends in advanced CKD management, followed by a review of acute kidney injury diagnosis and management.” — Doody’s Review Service’s Jon Webb, MD
“This is the fourth edition of a textbook written by well-known nephrology, hypertension, and kidney transplantation experts, clinicians, and researchers.
It is intended for physicians and other allied health professionals who are interested in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its complications.
The editors used a consistent, comprehensive, and easy-to-read format, emphasizing the most recent understanding of CKD based on recently published literature. Unlike some other reference textbooks on the subject, this one is less encyclopedic and focuses primarily on CKD-related material.
The format of the book is appealing and user-friendly. In keeping with technology and interactive learning, the publishers have made an electronic version of the book available to readers via the ExpertConsult website. This one-of-a-kind feature allows the user to print material as well as a link to online databases such as MEDLINE and PubMed by clicking on the references at the end of each chapter…..Chronic Kidney Disease, Dialysis, and Transplantation will be of particular interest to CKD clinicians and readers, especially nephrologists, nephrology fellows-in-training, internists, and family practitioners.
Similarly, other allied health professionals who work with CKD will benefit greatly from this textbook. The ebook is a good introduction to the bread-and-butter issues encountered in most nephrology practices, whether in academic settings or the private sector, for medical students, interns, and residents planning to pursue subspecialty training in nephrology. I strongly believe it should be made available in all medical school libraries.” — Dr. Edgar Lerma, JAMA
