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.

* Ideal for practicing physicians, residents and medical students
|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.
|Electrolytes: Clinical and Laboratory Aspects
Lowest used price: $8.20
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.
|Organic Psychiatry : The Psychological Consequences Ofcerebral Disorder
Lowest used price: $1,023.82
This classic single-author text has been extensively revised and updated. As in previous editions it provides a comprehensive review of cognitive, emotional and behavioural consequences of cerebral disorder and their manifestations in clinical practice. In addition to standard neuropsychiatric conditions, the subject matter encompasses endocrine, metabolic and toxic disorders with respect to their impact on brain function. Extensive new sections have been added to take into account recent theoretical and clinical developments, particularly in chapters on dementias and toxic disorders, and in reference to the expanding range of rarer neurodegenerative disorders. The problems of HIV infection receive extensive coverage as well as the accumulating evidence pointing to a neuropsychiatric basis for schizophrenia. Advances in brain imaging are detailed as are salient discoveries in the fields of molecular biology and molecular genetics. Finally, many new references have been added.

Schizophrenia is one of the most complex and puzzling diseases to affect mankind. For the average practicing psychiatrist, making sense of the vast body of information on the subject and filtering out what is of clinical relevance can be difficult. This book is aimed at these practicing psychiatrists. The book consists of four sections: descriptive aspects, causative aspects, physical treatments, and psychological, behavioural, and social treatments. The Editors are both highly respected clinical psychiatrists who are leading experts on schizophrenia. They have brought together a strong group of contributors from the USA, UK and Europe to produce what will be an essential reference for the trainee and practicing psychiatrist. The result is a comprehensive textbook and research guide about schizophrenia, including up-to-date chapters reviewing current biology of the disorder, phenomenology, clinical characteristics, and treatment, both medical and psychosocial.

|Acid and Basics: A Guide to Understanding Acidbase Disorders
Lowest new price: $6.95
Lowest used price: $4.42
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.

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.
