Chapters are clearly written with colour, texture of type and shading identifying key points. They also make ample use of tables and line drawings which reproduce with excellent quality...a valuable tool for any practitioner managing patients recieving this form of support. The editors are acknowledged leaders in the field and the presentiaton is crisp and clear. Much of the mystery around various applications of CRRT is clarified in this work. (Doody's Notes)

One was given as a gift and the other for myself to keep . Great book on CRRT!
This is really the only CRRT textbook out there, at least that I'm aware of (not counting the $100 Dialysis books).
It is a very practical handbook.
It has a lot of pictures and diagrams, which I have used when teaching residents about CRRT. It explains the different modalities of CRRT very well (CVVH, CVVHD, CVVHDF, SLED, SCUF etc).
It has a chapter about how to start a CRRT program that might be very helpful to physicians wanting to do that.
It has chapters about citrate versus heparin anticoagulation, and troubleshooting the CRRT machine (e.g. what does an elevated arterial/venous/TMP pressure mean etc).
The book gets very repetitive; since different authors wrote the chapters, the same information is provided multiple times.
The book is overpriced for what you get, but comparable in price to other medical textbooks.
It has no significant discussion of the important clinical studies in renal replacement therapy in the ICU. I expected a more detailed discussion about timing of initiation, dose of CRRT etc.
More information about drug dosing in CRRT would also improve this book, but then there are not a lot of data out there about this.
Would I buy it again? Yes, definitely.
It describes the dialysis prescribtions, complications, timings, indications and all pertaining information.
It also gives a hint about the Antibiotic dosing adjustment during CRRT.
Its a good one.
