Author: W. S. T. Thomson
Acid-Base is an area which lies within no one specialty and yet is important in renal and pulmonary conditions, for intensive care, and within medicine in general. This book is concise, yet provides comprehensive coverage of acid-base balance in a clinical context. It explains the fundamental processes, their nature and their significance, with an emphasis on practical aspects. The book is divided into three parts, the first providing an introduction to the topic, explaining the underlying principles and concepts of acid-base balance. The second section considers simple disturbances of acid-base balance, and their diagnosis and treatment. The final part concerns mixed disturbances and discusses how acid-base data should be tackled. This section provides a simple and logical approach to the practical problems of the interpretation of acid-base data.

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: $0.66
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.

Author: Horacio J. A. Adroque MD
Blackwell's Basics of Medicine Series examines relevant topics in medicine using concepts that pertain to the basic sciences as a starting point. The doctrine on which this series has been formulated dictates that two critical elements should be present in order to acquire the skills required for optimal patient management: a thoughtful approach based on solid pathophysiological knowledge and the ability to apply common sense generously while acquiring basic medical principles. This series uses simple questions followed by short answers as well as case presentations to illustrate the various topics presented. Each book in this series examines a carefully selected topic that is germane to the daily practice of medicine. This book contains everything you need to know about fluid and electrolytes but were afraid (...or didn't know how) to answer

ARF induced by traumatic rhabdomyolysis and crush syndrome is a well-known complication occurring in the wake of natural or manmade disasters. As a matter of fact, it is the second most frequent cause of death, following the direct traumatic impact. Early recognition of the crush syndrome and rapid initiation of fluid replacement is essential as this can dramatically reduce the incidence of ARF. After the Marmara earthquake of 1999, the Turkish Society of Nephrology, in collaboration with the Renal Disaster Relief Task Force of the International Society of Nephrology, prepared special questionnaires to obtain patient data and follow-up information to analyze the extent of the nephrological problems. This book is based on the 639 cases consequently documented, constituting an unprecedented collection of first-hand experience on crush syndrome-related ARF following earthquakes.

The first part of this book describes in a condensed manner the current state of diagnosis and treatment of disorders of electrolyte balance and provides the physician with both a rapid aid to orientation at the bedside as well as a comprehensive insight into the pathophysiological relationships involved. A separate section deals with electrolytes in the urine. In the subsequent chapters, preanalysis and analysis of electrolytes are discussed with special reference to determination by means of ion-selective electrodes as well as "enzymatic" methods and carrier-bound reagents ("dry chemistry") including quality assessment.
