Contents of this book are semi technical. Useful for readers looking for a technical explanation of current peritoneal dialysis therapy for CKF. Subjects covered are reasonably comprehensive but not as detailed as some advance textbooks . Overall, a useful reference book. Easy to read and understand. Recommended.

Great book on an up and coming medical procedure. 17 Dec 2014
By B. Wolinsky - Published on Amazon.com
Dr. Guest’s book is thoroughly inclusive, starting from the early days of Peritoneal Dialysis up to the present day and any problems involved. He states bluntly at the very beginning that some countries have not yet begun to use this technique, while others have enjoyed the benefits for years. As with any medical procedure, safety is paramount, and this book covers the proper way to place catheters. It also advises the repair of any pre-existing conditions, such as hernias, that can get in the way of the catheter placement.

A chapter is given on the use of Peritoneal Dialysis in obsess patients, for whom the procedure may bring further complications. Caution must be used with regard to anti-inflammatory drugs, and the catheters must be placed in a certain way so that they can be monitored, in case an infection flares up.

A comprehensive manual on the theory and care of peritoneal dialysis patients. This is my "go to" book. All nephrology nurses caring for PD patients should own this excellently written book.
