About this book

The kidneys participate in all vital processes of the body to maintain overall homeostasis and health. When kidneys are injured during surgical interventions, metabolic and hemodynamic control is disrupted, leading to dysfunction associated with greater mortality, length of hospital stay and cost.

Peri-operative Kidney Injury presents the epidemiology, risk factors, diagnosis, treatment and outcomes associated with kidney injury during the peri-operative period. Concepts and principles of care to prevent kidney complications during surgical procedures are provided to equip health care professionals along with strategies to manage acute kidney injury and associated challenges when they occur. Chapters detail diverse surgical settings, ranging from the more common, such as abdominal, cardiac and vascular surgeries, to the intricately complex, including the use of the left ventricular assist device and organ transplants. This practical and comprehensive text blends the evidence-based standards of care with cutting edge advances in the field, while also providing the reader with a peek into innovations on the horizon.

Reviews

“Surgery residents, fellows, and surgeons at all stages of their careers will benefit from this book. In fact, anyone caring for surgical patients, including anesthesiologists, internists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants, will find value in this book. … It provides an easy to read review of kidney injury in surgical patients. There is no other resource that I’m aware of that presents this much information in one easy-to-understand book.” (Luis J. Garcia, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2015)

“This textbook is effectively organized, well referenced, and offers an excellent means for any clinician to improve their clinical practice. Indeed, not one topic was missed or incompletely covered, and the evidence provided was thorough and up to date. I would recommend this book to any intensivist, perioperative physician, or surgeon.” (Kelly Kohorst, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Journal canadien d'anesthésie, Vol. 62 (11), 2015)
