Nephrology is an important speciality; patients with acute or chronic kidney failure are encountered in every medical and surgical speciality, as well as in general practice
Difficult concepts are clarified, using simple diagrams to explain the link between pathology and clinical presentation
Following a question-answer approach, including self-assessment material and a refresher section on the basic science of this clinical area, Nephrology Clinical Cases Uncovered features investigations and the treatment options available for patients with renal disease, including those requiring renal replacement therapy with dialysis and transplantation
Nephrology Clinical Cases Uncovered contains clinical presentations with real-life patient cases and outcomes as seen on the wards and in exams, and leads students through a practical approach to diagnosis and management of kidney disease
Nephrology Clinical Cases Uncovered is ideal for medical students, junior doctors on the Foundation Programme, GP trainees, and specialist nurses and nurse practitioners
On most general medical rotations and on most surgical wards there are patients with renal problems
Renal medicine is taught on rotation during degree courses, and Foundation training programmes frequently include attachments in nephrology, urology, and renal transplantation
This book is also a useful refresher for nephrology trainees at the beginning of their specialist training programme.
