Nephrology in your pocket is written by two clinical nephrologists, one trained and practicing in the USA, the other in Europe. Initially intended for medical students, the book has been expanded to be useful to all physicians and midlevel practitioners who care for renal patients. The aim of the authors is to provide practical information, written simply as if participating in a seminar, and to include clinical pearls, medication dosages, and “important trivia”.
600 pages with almost 300 illustrations and 120 tables.
