✏History of Nephrology 2 Book Summary : This publication contains contributions from the First Congress of the International Association for the History of Nephrology held on the island of Kos, Greece, in October 1996. The association was founded in 1994 to foster interest, encourage research and disseminate information on the history of nephrology. The text begins with an examination of the origins of nephrology in various medical writings from Greece, Byzantium and the Renaissance. This is followed by an overview of the history of dialysis and the early beginnings of renal transplantation. The concluding section examines early attempts at the conceptualization of the normal kidney, its diseases and metabolic functions. Presenting a wealth of fascinating information, this publication is a sequel to History of Nephrology, Vol. 14, No. 4-6 (1994) of American Journal of Nephrology.

✏History of Nephrology 3 Book Summary : While nephrology is but a toddler in the brief history of compartmentalization of medical disciplines, conceptualizations of the functions and diseases of the kidney have existed since antiquity, developed over time and still continue to unfold. It is the unraveling of this heretofore buried past that is continued in this third volume of 'History of Nephrology'. Beginning with a section on the magic and myths associated with the kidney, the book then continues with chapters on the roots of nephrology as recorded in Babylonian, Egyptian, Pre-Columbian, Greek, Byzantine and medieval medical texts. A third section is dedicated to the contributions of the Padua School of Medicine to nephrology during the 17th century, followed by articles on the contributions of different countries to renal physiology during the 18th and 19th centuries. The concluding sections explore the emergence of the modern era in nephrology and selected aspects of renal replacement therapy. Considering the broad approach taken in this publication, it provides interesting and informative reading not only for nephrologists proper, but also for those interested in the history of medicine in general.

✏History of Nephrology Book Summary : Reconstructing the history of nephrology is not an easy task: It requires a great deal of effort and interest on the part of the researcher, who has to explore information on diseases of the kidney in various medical texts of the past, where it has sometimes been buried for centuries. This volume of 'History of Nephrology' thus concentrates on the history of diseases of the kidney. Physicians have toiled in diagnosing and treating ailments of the kidney for millennia, well before the emergence of the specialty of nephrology. It is also evident that many of the best minds in medicine, when faced with the complex signs and symptoms we now classify as diseases of the kidney, were initially puzzled by them and then satisfied by merely describing them. While the thriving of anatomy allowed of some of these clinical manifestations to be attributed to pathologies of the kidney observed at autopsy, it was only after the Scientific Revolution and during the era of Enlightenment that most of these descriptive entities came to be grouped under the taxonomic terms by which any medical student today can make a specific diagnosis of kidney disease. Their treatment, however, whether symptomatic or curative, had to await the post World War II period of flourishing basic research. Nephrologists as well as those interested in the history of medicine in general will find this book a veritable treasure trove of information.

✏Review of Hemodialysis for Nurses and Dialysis Personnel Book Summary : Keeping you current with the latest in dialysis treatment and equipment, Review of Hemodialysis for Nurses and Dialysis Personnel, 8th Edition provides a practical introduction to dialysis and an excellent review for the certification exam. It assumes no prior knowledge of patient care, nursing procedures, or dialysis principles, using a question-and-answer format to discuss the basic principles, basic diseases, and basic problems found in the treatment of kidney patients by dialysis. Dialysis expert Judy Kallenbach writes in a clear, easy-to-read style, explaining topics such as the chemistry of body fluid and electrolytes, renal failure, nutrition, infection control, and the important psychosocial aspects of dialysis treatment. Easy-to-understand language introduces new terms and concepts, not assuming prior knowledge of dialysis. A question-and-answer format makes information easy to find and easy to read. Comprehensive coverage provides the knowledge needed to care for dialysis patients and to prepare for the certification exam, with topics including a review of fluid and electrolytes, transplantation, infection control, and the important psychosocial aspects of dialysis treatment. More than 60 illustrations depict all aspects of dialysis treatment and care. A multidisciplinary approach includes a chapter on the different roles in the hemodialysis team, describing how dialysis care is coordinated and what patients go through during their treatment. Coverage of the entire lifespan helps in caring for patients of different ages, including separate chapters on pediatric hemodialysis and end-stage renal disease in the elderly. A discussion of home dialysis therapies prepares you for a time when cost cutting may lead to a wider use of home dialysis treatment. Useful appendices offer quick reference to organizations and resources, pound-to-kilogram conversions, a glossary, and more.

✏Proteomics in Nephrology Book Summary : The novel discipline of proteomics has experienced a rapid growth in the recent past and has a great potential for the future. Involving several fields, it offers various advantages: The study of proteins on a genomic scale allows to examine a large number of them simultaneously. Moreover, proteomic analysis provides information about post-translational modifications and functions of gene products or proteins that cannot be obtained by genomic analysis. The knowledge thus gained is also important for a better understanding of renal physiology and pathophysiology, to identify disease biomarkers, and to develop new target therapies.This book is the first one that applies the science of proteomics to nephrology: It sets out to give an overview of the discipline, providing detailed background information and outlining scope, advantages, and limitations of proteomics.The second section reviews principles of commonly used proteomic techniques, including sample preparation, two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, various types of mass spectrometry, expression proteomics, quantitative proteomics, practical bioinformatics, and clinical proteomics. In the last section, examples and perspectives are provided of how proteomics can be applied to various fields in nephrology, including nephrotoxicity, sodium transport, diabetic nephropathy, renal Fanconi syndrome, IgA nephropathy, physiology of podocytes and mesangial cells, hypertension, urological malignancies, and dialysis. The publication ends with a discussion of biomarker discovery in glomerular diseases and drug discovery.Written by acclaimed experts in both proteomics and nephrology, this truly remarkable book is essential reading for students, residents, fellows, scientists, and nephrologists who are interested in or devoted to research, as well as for general health professionals and clinicians.
