Authors: Salvetti, MassimoPresents cases involving the forms of both truly resistant and pseudo-resistant hypertensionDescribes clinical scenarios frequently encountered in clinical practice, rather than rare presentationsHelps in transferring general recommendations from guidelines to daily clinical practiceAids patient-specific selection of diagnostic approach and treatmentThis book is designed to assist physicians in the everyday management of hypertensive patients, with a particular focus on difficult-to-treat and resistant hypertension.
Editors: Landoni, G., Pisano, A., Zangrillo, A., Bellomo, R. (Eds.)Discusses the techniques, strategies, and drugs reported to influence survival in patients with or at risk for acute kidney injuryAddresses a wide range of interventions and settingsIncludes helpful "how to do" sections and "key point" boxesThis book describes the techniques, strategies, and drugs that have been demonstrated by at least one paper published in a peer-reviewed journal to significantly influence survival in patients with or at risk for acute kidney injury.
Acute kidney failure is an important clinical area in the intensive care unit setting. An estimated 5–20% of critically ill patients experience an episode of acute kidney failure during the course of their illness, and about 5% of patients admitted to an ICU will eventually require renal replacement therapy.
Oncology in Primary Care is for primary care clinicians who need practical and concise information on caring for their patients with cancer. Written in an easy-to-browse format, chapters cover risk factors, prevention, screening, prognosis, and surveillance strategies – valuable information that helps primary care clinicians advise their patients regarding therapeutic and end-of-life decisions and become true partners in the care of their patients with cancer. Each chapter also includes an abundance of figures and tables to help clinicians find quick answers to questions commonly encountered in the primary care setting.
Now that the efficiency of dialysis machines has reached the point that the limiting factors are those of the patient’s body, scientists are engaging in physiological modeling to explore the limitations to fluid and solute removal from the patient. The six papers here discuss the removal of fluid and urea during hemodialysis, transport kinetics dur
The last few years have seen major advances in all aspects of the understanding and treatment of kidney cancer, particularly the commonest variant clear cell carcinoma of the kidney. This book brings the reader up to date with these developments, covering aetiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, prognostic factors, presentation, interventional radiology, minimally invasive surgery, surgery for locally advanced tumours and for metasatic disease, adjuvant medical therapies, therapies for advanced disease, radiotherapy and palliation of symptoms.
Since the inaugural publication of Pediatric Dialysis in 2004, a wide range of advances have taken place in dialysis-related care, leading to a wealth of new knowledge in the field. Pediatric Dialysis, Second Edition brings this knowledge together to provide the most comprehensive source of state-of-the-art information on the dialysis of infants, children and adolescents.
Edited by leaders at one of the acclaimed transplant institutions in the United States, this reference covers all aspects of living donor solid organ and cellular transplantation in current clinical practice, including the kidney, liver, pancreas, lung, small bowel, islet, and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Detailed, engaging, and organ- and cell-specific chapters cover guidelines for donor and recipient selection and evaluation, recent surgical techniques, and an assessment of donor risks and long-term patient outcomes.
Gumz, Michelle L. (Ed.)Updates readers on new findings concerning the essential role of biological rhythmsAddresses both basic research and clinical aspectsWritten by leading scientists and cliniciansThis book sheds new light on the molecular mechanisms that generate circadian rhythms. It examines how biological rhythms influence physiological processes such as sleep, hormone synthesis and secretion, immunity, kidney function, the cardiovascular system, blood pressure, and the digestive system. Clinical implications are considered while exploring the impact of rhythms on neuropsychiatric disorders and chronotherapy’s potential for reducing cardiovascular risk.
