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., M.D. Adrogue
The "Blackwell's Basics in Medicine" series deals with fluids and electrolyte balance. Each title addresses one particular topic. The first deals with salt and water, with a further title on potassium. This book deals with acid base. The series goes on to cover organ pathphysiology with titles on renal failure and heart failure using the Socratic method. The series follows a standard structure comprising brief questions (progressing from the simple to the more complex) followed by short answers. Case presentations teach the fundamentals of fluid and electrolyte balance, and illustrate the various topics presented. The approach is based on solid pathophysiological knowledge applied to basic medical principles, enabling the reader to interpret clinical data based on sound pathophysiological concepts, and thus provide better patient care.

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
|The Bone and Mineral Manual: A Practical Guide
Lowest new price: $18.55
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
|Clinical Acid-Base Balance

Lowest used price: $34.26
List price: $55.00
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.

|The Crush Syndrome (and Lessons Learned from the Marmara Earthquake)

Author: Mehmet Sukru, M.D. Sever
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.
