Pediatric Dialysis 3rd Edition 2021

Pediatric Dialysis 3rd Edition 2021

The optimal management of children who receive dialysis therapy requires a thorough understanding of the multidisciplinary nature of their treatment. The multiple organ systems that are often impacted by acute and chronic impairment of kidney function makes the care of this patient population highly complex. This 3rd edition of Pediatric Dialysis provides authoritative and comprehensive information on all aspects of dialysis-related care for children to assist the clinician in achieving the best possible patient outcomes.    

Like the two preceding editions, the 3rd edition enlists experts from North America, South America, Europe, and Asia to provide their perspectives on virtually all issues pertaining to dialysis-related management for children, based on years of clinical and research experience. The book contains sections on all essential topics including when to initiate dialysis, peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis, managing secondary complications, nutritional therapy, drugs and dialysis, dialysis outcomes, and transition to adult care.  Each chapter has been thoroughly updated in terms of content and references. The book also includes several new chapters on topics such as remote patient monitoring, acute kidney injury management in the developing world, and antibiotic stewardship in the dialysis unit, maintaining the text’s preeminent status as a worldwide source for pediatric dialysis care.
