About this book

The challenging circumstances surrounding pediatric patients in nephrology are oftentimes very different from those in adult patients, especially in the ICU. Starting with a logical approach to each individual problem as seen in the ICU, this comprehensive book covers the pathophysiology of the child, the diagnostic approach and gives valuable up-to-date treatment recommendations.

Each renal disorder and disease entity is covered with:

  • An overview of the physiology and pathophysiology
  • A focus on unique and frequently challenging circumstances of pediatric patients
  • State-of-the-art medical management guidelines based on evidence and expert opinion

Physicians and health-care providers in all areas of care and all levels of training will find this unique book helpful. Those new to the field can use it as a beginner’s guide to become familiar with certain topics, and those more advanced in their medical career will gain useful hints and find updated information on specific clinical disease entities.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book is focused on clinical problems; each chapter features a clinical case that reinforces the topic that is under discussion. … It is a tool for pediatric nephrologists and pediatric critical care physicians to use in their armamentarium as they treat children with kidney problems in the intensive care setting. For fellows-in-training in both specialties, this book is a must-read … . The strength of this book is that its many authors are experts in both pediatric critical care and pediatric nephrology." (Timothy E. Bunchman, The New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 360 (22), May, 2009)

“Renal problems in the pediatric ICU are frequent, starting with water and electrolyte balance, acid base problems, etc. In recent years issues before and after renal transplantation occur. International experts in pediatric nephrology review and discuss in 21 chapters the above and other problems such as urosepsis renal replacement therapy … . With many tables in color and illustrations. Each chapter includes ‘core messages’. Recommended.” (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, Vol. 7 (4), June, 2010)
