Paediatric Nephrology is designed to help the reader understand and manage any condition affecting the kidney in childhood. It is pocket-sized to give easy reference in the clinical setting and highlights the important issues for quick use. From history taking and urinalysis, electrolyte management, acute kidney injury and transplantation, all aspects are covered in this concise yet comprehensive guide to this specialist area. It is an invaluable
reference for both the general paediatrician and the specialist on: · history taking and examination, urinalysis and radiological investigations; · the management of acute emergencies such as
fluid, electrolyte and acid-base imbalances and acute renal failure; · renal problems in the neonate; · issues involving immunology, dialysis, vaccination and drug prescribing; · key areas, such as chronic kidney disease, transplantation, and acute kidney injury. The appendix provides useful additional information and protocols. This new edition is up-to-date and evidence-based when possible. Tables and equations direct readers to
the use of relevant medication and drug dosages.
