Essential Evidence-Based Data for Common Clinical Encounters

"This is very useful for providers who desire a fast review of fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base disorders without asking for in-depth information. Background information about pathophysiology and references are not included, but are not needed. This makes the book unique and quite different from other available resources on the topic. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service

Make sense of acid-base and electrolytes with this compact, on-the-go guide--filled with clinical facts, figures, and data.

In this ultra-convenient resource, the authors have distilled down the most relevant insights from their acclaimed text Nephrology in 30 Days, giving you a complete, yet concise overview of acid-based and electrolytes--supported by evidence-based findings.

You'll find at-a-glance tables and a bulleted format that puts key diagnostic and clinical information right at your fingertips. This one-stop guide gets you up to speed on the major issues in acid-base and electrolyte disturbances, from metabolic acidosis to serum calcium disorders. It's the perfect clinical companion to more in-depth acid-base texts--one that goes beyond educational principles to focus on the real world of clinical medicine and patient management.

  • The perfect portable brain for the wards
  • Vital facts and figures everyone forgets to remember
  • Presented in easy-access tables
