Reviews

“It is meant as a resource for providers who manage patients with kidney disease requiring renal replacement therapies. … This book is aimed at nephrologists, nephrology fellows, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and dialysis nurses. It also will be useful for critical care providers, pharmacists, and dietitians. … Topics in each chapter are well written and separated with simple titles and subtitles and associated with helpful tables and figures. All chapters are followed by good number of references for additional reading.” (Taha Ayach, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2016)
