Fluid, Electrolyte, and Acid–Base Physiology A Problem-Based Approach fifth Edition Ebook PDF download
Fluid, Electrolyte, and Acid–Base Physiology A Problem-Based Approach fifth Edition Ebook PDF download About 6 years have passed between this, the fifth edition of Fluid, Elec trolyte, and Acid–Base Physiology, and the fourth edition. For this edi-
tion, Professor Kamel S. Kamel has taken the role of lead author, while
Professor Marc Goldstein, because of other commitments and time
constraints, has decided not to participate. Our initial intention with this edition was to provide limited updates of a few chapters.
We ended up, however, extensively revising the book, so that it is almost entirely rewritten. Although the effort was substantial and the time commitment was much more than we anticipated, we could not be more proud of the product. In this fifth
edition of Fluid, Electrolyte, and Acid–Base Physiology, we have tried to provide a comprehensive, go-to guide to the diagnosis and management of fluid-electrolyte and acid–base disorders.
Keypoints of Fluid, Electrolyte, and Acid–Base Physiology A Problem-Based Approach fifth Edition
The book aims to move from basic physiology to pathophysiology to practical clinical guidance, taking into account new discoveries and new insights into fluid-electrolyte and acid–base physiology, as well as new options available for treatment. We emphasize principles of metabolic regu- lation and biochemistry to promote an in-depth understanding of metabolic acid–base disorders. We also emphasize integrative, whole body physiology to provide a more in-depth understanding of the
pathophysiology of fluid, electrolyte, and acid–base disorders.
The style of the book, which we believe has been appealing to readers, has
not changed. As in previous editions, we have attempted to provide
information in an easy-to-understand way, with emphasis on how to
apply the information to clinical practice, supported by numerous
diagrams, flow charts, and tables. To engage and challenge the reader,
we have included several clinical cases and questions throughout each
of the chapters in the book.
We believe that this fifth edition of Fluid, Electrolyte, and Acid–Base
Physiology will provide a useful resource to learners at different levels,
from medical students to postgraduate trainees, and to practitioners
such as general internists and specialists with an interest in the area of
fluid-electrolyte and acid–base disorders.
