Salt & Water (Blackwell's Basics of Medicine)

Salt & Water (Blackwell's Basics of Medicine) Lowest new price: $59.95
Lowest used price: $17.61
List price: $10.95
Author: Horacio J., M.D. Adrogue
Brand: Brand: Blackwell Science Inc

The "Blackwell's Basics in Medicine" series deals with fluids and electrolyte balance. Each title addresses one particular topic. This first title focuses on salt and water, with further titles on acid base and potassium. 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.

Lowest used price: $24.03
List price: $34.00
Author: Jeffrey M. Brensilver

A reference for students and health professionals to recognize and manage upsets in the delicate balance of the body's water and the substances it carries.

High-Yield™ Acid-Base (High-Yield Series)

High-Yield™ Acid-Base (High-Yield  Series) Lowest new price: $5.50
Lowest used price: $0.10
List price: $26.95
Author: J. Craig Longenecker MD MPH

This book is not intended to replace the numerous other textbooks on acid-base or to provide a shortcut around the many hours of study required to understand acid-base syndromes as they relate to the broader context of medical illness. Rather, the goal of this book is to provide a bridge between the acid-base physiology taught in the classroom and the evaluation of the patient on the wards. This book will enable the reader to develop a practical and reasoned approach to the patient with an acid-base disorder.


Blackwell's Basics of Medicine: Potassium

Blackwell's Basics of Medicine: Potassium Lowest used price: $16.05
List price: $24.95
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


Hemodiafiltration (Contributions to Nephrology, Vol. 158)

Hemodiafiltration (Contributions to Nephrology, Vol. 158) Lowest new price: $40.41
Lowest used price: $93.88
List price: $146.00
Brand: Brand: S Karger Pub

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.

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

The Crush Syndrome (and Lessons Learned from the Marmara Earthquake) Lowest new price: $32.45
Lowest used price: $139.54
List price: $51.00
Author: M.S. Sever
Brand: Brand: S Karger Pub

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. In addition to the data / analysis gained from the Marmara earthquake, each chapter also summarizes classical information on crush syndrome. In every major natural catastrophe, a rapid, appropriate and effective international response is essential to minimize losses and be able to adequately treat victims. This can be achieved only by rational planning and the establishment of an infrastructure composed of trained personnel, equipment, supplies and transportation that can be mobilized at a few hours’ notice is essential. This book has been written with the intent to make use of the experiences made after the Marmara earthquake to save more lives in similar future disasters.

List price: $99.00

A different approach to contrast media, discussed primarily from the point of view of the radiologist. Comprehensive sections are devoted to iodinated contrast media and to the contrast media employed in magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasonography. The latest agents available receive due attention, as do adverse reactions. A final section considers the use of contrast media in nuclear medicine.


Electrolytes: Clinical and Laboratory Aspects

Electrolytes: Clinical and Laboratory Aspects Lowest used price: $12.81
List price: $30.00
Author: W. R. Kulpmann

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.
