The leading textbook on the subject. A completely rewritten and up-to-date fifth edition, based upon the highly respected fourth edition, edited by C. Jacobs, C.M. Kjellstrand, K.M. Koch and J.F. Winchester. Considered the global resource for dialysis specialists, dialysis manufacturers and scientists for over two decades, this authoritative, highly acclaimed major reference work has been completely rewritten and revised in a much-awaited 5th edition. All previous chapters have been updated to include the very latest advancements and understandings in this critical and complex field. New sections include those on computerization of dialysis records, online monitoring and biofeedback, patient sexual function, patient selection and integration, use of exercise in improving patient health, design of randomized trials, and more. This new edition is truly global in scope and features the contributions the top experts from around the world
