This companion to Brenner and Rector's The Kidney offers a concise, practical approach to acid-base and electrolyte disorders, emphasizing pathophysiology and its link to a logical diagnostic approach in treating these disorders. Unlike other traditional textbooks on the subject, ACID BASE AND ELECTROLYTE DISORDERS, focuses less on physiological and pathophysiological concepts and more on providing specific recommendations for therapy and patient care - resulting in an excellent clinical resource that is also an ideal core curriculum or exam review. Many of the topics in this book are not covered in any other resource, including acid-base and electrolyte disorders in the critical care setting. In addition, recent advances in fast-developing areas such as genetic and molecular biology are discussed in detail. Emphasizes acid-base and electrolyte abnormalities in the critical care setting - a topic not fully covered in any other resource. Includes the most up-to-date information on hot topics such as molecular biology and genetics of tubular transport abnormalities, hypertension, and calcium, sodium, and potassium homeostasis. Authors and contributors are experts in their field, providing the most authoritative information available. Figures and tables throughout the book help clarify important concepts.

Small Animal Fluid Therapy, Acid-base and Electrolyte Disorders

A Color Handbook

Author: Elisa M. Mazzaferro

Fluid therapy is one of the most important, yet controversial, aspects of therapy in veterinary medicine. Opinions differ as to how best to provide fluid therapy in different disease states. Recognizing these differences, the author provides guidelines for the safe implementation of fluid and transfusion therapy in clinical practice. The text first describes the physiologic fluid compartments of the body and how fluid travels from place to place within the body. Clinical chapters then deal with how to place and maintain intravenous and intraosseous catheters, with crystalloids and colloids, with transfusion medicine, with the diagnosis and treatment of electrolyte disorders, and with shock and resuscitation. Clinical cases reinforce the principles and concepts described and the book is fully illustrated throughout. The Color Handbook is designed to appeal alike to veterinary practitioners, to technicians/nurses and to veterinary students.

Serious disturbances of fluid and electrolyte balance are frequently encountered in acutely ill patients; somewhat less often in the chronically sick. There seems to be a trend for such cases to increase, due probably to an increase in major surgical procedures on older patients whose renal function is less than adequate. There are already many publications dealing with the physiology of the homeo stasis of fluid and electrolytes, and others dealing with the clinical aspects of the subject. It is often assumed that a knowledge of the basic principles of physiology will enable the doctor to prescribe suitable intravenous therapy. In practice this is often found not to be so and the evidence for this is the frequency of calls for help with electrolyte problems from well-qualified and experienced doctors who are undoubtedly equipped with adequate or even excellent knowledge of the basic It is not an unusual observation that knowledge of theory and principles involved. principles does not necessarily lead to successful practice in this or any other art or craft. Most doctors already possess knowledge of the physiology of the internal envi ronment, but some are aware of being unable to deal effectively with clinical problems related to fluid and electrolyte disturbances and seek guidance to translate theoretical knowledge into practice.
