|Ascites and Renal Dysfunction in Liver Disease: Pathogenesis, Diagnosis, and Treatment
Lowest new price: $222.74
Lowest used price: $149.00
List price: $265.00
There has been very little written on the interaction of the liver and kidney. This book addresses the increasing incidence and significance of diseases, such as ascites, renal dysfunction, cirrhosis and hypertension where both organs are involved.
This textbook is essential, even for confirmed practitioners and contains current information regarding treatment and therapy for patients with cirrhosis and ascites, clearly and effectively presented by the top international experts within this field.
The second edition is entirely revised and updated and places greater emphasis on therapy.
|The Bone and Mineral Manual: A Practical Guide
Lowest new price: $18.00
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $50.95
The Bone and Mineral Manual incorporates the most up-to-date laboratory methods, techniques, and approaches for designing strategies and investigating the pathophysiology of bone and mineral metabolism. It presents information in a succinct format that allows practitioners to find the answers they need quickly and easily--even while the patient encouter is still in progress. This practical guide will become a frequent companion of endocriniologists, bone and mineral specialists, and nephrologists.
* Brings together current bone and mineral metabolism methods in one easily accessible volume
* Provides a quick reference for immediate handling of bone and mineral disorders
* Presents information in bullets, highlights, tables, and decision trees rather than lengthy text
* Addresses problems likely to be seen at all ages, from pre-term infant to the centenarian
* Ideal for practicing physicians, residents and medical students

List price: $292.00
Brand: Brand: S Karger Pub
A concise handbook on clinical and technical possibilities The application of hemodiafiltration has been restricted until recently, when a broader clinical application has been made possible due to evidence from large studies and clinical investigations. This book provides an updated review of the evolution, advances and recent results achieved by hemodiafiltration in the clinical arena. The first part is devoted to historical notes and an outline of the evolution of different forms of hemodiafiltration, made possible by technological developments in the fields of membranes, machines and fluids. The next section describes the theoretical rationale for hemodiafiltration, providing a detailed analysis of the involved mass separation processes, the hydraulic properties of the dialyzers, fluid mechanics and crossfiltration in hollow fiber hemodialyzers. An outline of different hemodiafiltration techniques, also reporting peculiar transport mechanisms and related technology, is given next, and a section on the clinical effects of hemodiafiltration concludes this book. Including different technologies, the publication offers a complete overview of the technical and clinical possibilities provided by hemodiafiltration in its widest concept, ranging from the molecular basis to the most practical application. It will be a valuable tool for the implementation of hemodiafiltration in daily practice aimed at beginners and experts, scientists and physicians, students and senior faculty members alike.

|Acid and Basics: A Guide to Understanding Acidbase Disorders
Lowest new price: $6.95
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $19.50
Author: Jerome Lowenstein
Acid-base metabolism is of fundamental clinical relevance and is one of the areas least well understood by medical students and physicians. The past 10 years have seen tremendous advances in knowledge regarding the molecular basis for membrane transport. This accessible book discusses in detail the intricacies of acid-base physiology, clearly describing how transport proteins delicately facilitate the movement of ions across the cell membranes and preserve the acid-base balance. This information permits an understanding of the physiologic basis for acid-base disorders not previously possible.
