About this book


The challenging circumstances surrounding pediatric patients in nephrology are oftentimes very different from those in adult patients, especially in the ICU. Starting with a logical approach to each individual problem as seen in the ICU, this comprehensive book covers the pathophysiology of the child, the diagnostic approach and gives valuable up-to-date treatment recommendations.

Each renal disorder and disease entity is covered with:

  • An overview of the physiology and pathophysiology
  • A focus on unique and frequently challenging circumstances of pediatric patients
  • State-of-the-art medical management guidelines based on evidence and expert opinion

Physicians and health-care providers in all areas of care and all levels of training will find this unique book helpful. Those new to the field can use it as a beginner’s guide to become familiar with certain topics, and those more advanced in their medical career will gain useful hints and find updated information on specific clinical disease entities.
