This comprehensive book combines a review of the basic physiology and pathophysiology of each renal disorder and disease entity with state-of-the-art medical management guidelines based on evidence and expert opinion. Each chapter focuses on the unique and frequently challenging circumstances in pediatric patients, which are oftentimes very different from those in adult patients. Starting with a logical approach to each individual problem as seen in the ICU, it covers the pathophysiology of the child, the diagnostic approach and gives valuable up-to-date treatment recommendations. Health-care providers in all areas of care and all levels of training will find this unique book helpful. Those new in 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.
