Product Description

Review

"This is a nice review of the many functions of the kidney that is a useful study guide for first-time students as well as instructors of renal physiology. The textboxes reviewing clinical applications and summaries provide a quick resource, while the study questions require more in-depth understanding. The answers to the questions and integrative cases are well written and concise, providing a very helpful study resource. The book does not try to review the latest insights in kidney function, instead focusing on the basics to make the learning process easier. This is recommended for students and instructors of nephrology."-Jon Webb, MD(Universityof Kentucky College of Medicine) Doody Review: 76/100

Format: Paperback
As a third year student on a renal and endocrine firm, this book has been very useful in revisiting many areas relating to renal physiology. The level appears to be pitched at pre-clinical years, and there are comprehensive explanations of all renal functions.

There is a good chapter on acid-base balance which I feel is very well explained. I have found this book useful for revisiting regulation of potassium and the various diuretics. Most sections have 'in the clinic' boxes, which give useful hints and facts that really are commonly observed on hospital placements.

There are occasional long winded sentences which require a bit of digestion but apart from that it's well written. There are also a number of cases to test yourself on at the end, which I have found useful and engaging.

In summary this book offers a lot for pre-clinical year students, and is highly useful for revisiting the kidney in your clinical years.

HASH(0x8c19e5f4) out of 5 stars unreadable 29 April 2014
By charlesdonovan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First off, I would rather throw $43 dollars into a sewer hole than buy this textbook again - at least the former offers some entertainment and bemusement. Being someone who prefers to learn from textbooks over lectures, I have read plenty of books that are poorly written, but this one approaches the limit of how bad a textbook can get. Riddled with unnecessarily complex sentences, poor grammar, and confusing repetitions that aren't even consistent amongst themselves, I wonder how this book can ever come to be conceived. It is almost an insult to the field of nephrology. As I mired through the whole 10 chapters, I kept thinking when it's gonna get better, but more importantly, I kept thinking if the authors were drunk when they wrote this book. Like, c'mon, there's no way the authors proofread this thing for coherence and flow. And oh, by the way, equation 4-2, on page 68 is totally wrong (you can thank me for that). To say that it took me several times to reread a paragraph to understand what the authors want to say is an understatement and should tell you how bad the book is.

The only redeeming quality of this textbook are some of the good figures, but that is not enough to compensate for the poorly written text. Sentences are non-sequitur, logic is twisted, and contradictions occur one after another. When my renal exam came, I find myself trying to erase from my memory some of the faulty explanations that I have memorized from the book, and re-learn the material elsewhere. At the beginning, I thought it was just me and I faulted myself for spending exorbitant amount of time reading and understanding each chapter, but I have come to the conclusion that the book is, in fact, at fault. If there's anything that I got out of reading this book, it was that my threshold of pain has been increased by a notch higher. Don't believe me? Spend the 43 dollars and see for yourself.
