Description: Current Therapy in Nephrology and Hypertension provides a concise compendium of current information on the management of fluid and electrolyte, renal, genitourinary, and hypertensive disorders. This text is a specific clinical tool, unique among the competition in its focus on the management of hypertension and renal disease. With this new edition, chapter authorship has been rotated in order to provide the reader with fresh perspectives on the management of specific conditions, with what is essentially the same format and table of contents. Coverage of each disorder includes a brief description which emphasizes relevant pathophysiologic features, followed by therapeutic considerations and recommendations. The section covering hypertensive diseases has been expanded, making this book a more useful clinical resource for the wide audience of physicians who treat hypertensive patients.
Features: * This is the fourth edition of a book which has been well-established and well-received in the market. * Provides a more up-to-date compendium of treatment than can be found elsewhere in book form. * Expanded coverage of the management of hypertensive disease.
