Book Description

24 Jun 2012 1461437849 978-1461437840 5th ed. 2012

A good knowledge of renal physiology is essential to the understanding of many disease states.  The purpose of the book is to set out the principles of renal physiology and normal renal function.

 

Now in its 30th year of continuous publication, this new edition offers a logical progression through renal physiology and pathophysiology.  In addition, the anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and pathology of the kidney are covered – making it highly suitable for system based courses.

 

This 5th edition has been extensively revised and features a wealth of new and widely accepted information about kidney function.  This includes our understanding of the role of the glycocalyx and structural proteins in glomerular filtration; details of tubular transport, tight junctions and paracellular transport; and an update of the loops of Henle functioning.

 

Principles of Renal Physiology, 5th Edition is a concise and easily readable text ideal for undergraduate medical and medical science students.

Review

From the reviews of the fifth edition:

“A book on the (human) renal system for undergraduate medical and medical science students. … I was pleased to see that up to date references are used … to take account of the developments in renal physiology over the last decade. This is a concise, clearly written, easy to read book that explains complex concepts in a way that makes them easy to grasp. … it provides a solid grounding in renal physiology as it sets out to do.” (Sean McKeag, BTS Newsletter – The British Toxicology Society, Issue 43, Winter, 2013)

“This is the fifth edition of an introduction to the principles of normal renal physiology and function. … The book is intended for premedical and medical students, covering the anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and pathology of the kidney in a thorough and concise format. … special topic boxes highlight important correlations and further reading sections offer important review articles for each topic. … the material is succinct and presented well, making this is a good introductory source on nephrology.” (Pavan Kapadia, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2012)

Amazon.com: 5.0 out of 5 stars  1 review
5.0 out of 5 stars If you have kidney disease and truely want to understand the big picture, this is your book. 7 April 2014
By Simeon A. Clinton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I found out that I had kidney disease, I spend days searching the Internet and reading information intended to educate the patient on kidney disease. Nothing I read ever gave the total frame work that I needed to understand why my blood pressure was the way it was, why my blood sugar was high, why my vitamin d levels were abnormal, why my calcium levels were high, etc. Everything written for patients does not give you the knowledge that you need so that you view the problems that you are having in context. This book does. Read this, and you will be able to speak intelligently with your kidney specialist and you will be able to talk over the head of your primary health care provider. This book was not written for the layman, however it is not that difficult to read.
