About this book

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.  With new chapters, updated chapters and references, and contemporary, unique perspectives from authors who are leaders in the global pediatric nephrology community, Pediatric Dialysis, Second Edition is, once again, an authoritative reference that will facilitate best practices in both acute and chronic dialysis.  Experienced clinicians and trainees alike will find Pediatric Dialysis, Second Edition not only another valuable contribution to the literature but an indispensable guide to managing their pediatric patients on dialysis.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“It covers all major clinical aspects of pediatric renal replacement therapies. The accessible structure of the book enables readers to review the basics as well as the complexities in a thorough and organized fashion. … this is a great resource for clinicians at all levels. … All chapters start with key words, use a similar structure with easy-to-read paragraphs and numerous and well-integrated figures and tables, and are well referenced with up-to-date as well as key publications.” (Stefan G. Kiessling, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2012)

“The chapters are laid out in a logical fashion, starting with an interesting history of dialysis in children. This is interesting not only from a historical point of view, but in reviewing how we got to where we are and how the successes and mistakes can guide us forward. … an even more useful resource for renal nurses. The subject matter is up-to-date, relevant and clearly presented. … this book should be a part of all renal unit libraries, whether paediatric or adult.” (Journal of Renal Nursing, Vol. 4 (4), July, 2012)
