Search Menu The 4th edition of this already well-received book is, as expected, even better than the three previous editions. This is not a book you would read from the first to the last page, but rather one you would consult for advice on a particular problem with one of your dialysis patients, or to refresh your memory on a specific detail. This reviewer is no longer directly involved in the care of dialysis patients but, as editor-in-chief of this journal, he receives many new submissions daily, relating to an enormous variety of dialysis subjects.
I have therefore used this book for a number of months, when confronted with a dialysis paper, to learn what the authors of the handbook had to say on the subject. I have not yet been deceived, and often have learned more from the handbook than from reading the scientific paper. This is testimony to the up-to-date and very instructive way the authors of the different chapters of this book have covered almost every important aspect of both haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.
The book is divided into four parts: one on chronic kidney disease management before dialysis is needed; the second part covers all the blood-based therapies, the third details virtually all aspects of peritoneal dialysis and the fourth for the clinician the most interesting part covers the most common clinical problems that may be seen in the dialysis patient. The majority of the authors are from North America, but a number of well-known authors from Europe and the Far East have also contributed to this book.
If I could find one minor criticism in the book it is the lack of a comprehensive chapter on the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic aspects of drug therapy in the dialysis patient. Drug therapy is covered in many of the individual chapters, particularly in part four of the book, but an overall short introduction to this important aspect of the management of dialysis patients would probably be useful.
Overall, I can warmly recommend this handbook to all our clinical colleagues involved in the daily care of the dialysis patient; in particular, to young doctors starting their first rotation in the dialysis unit.
This is a book that should be present in every dialysis unit; not on the library shelf but on the desk of the physician and dialysis nurse for daily consultation.

Handbook of Dialysis
Handbook of Dialysis is the go-to source for current data and recommendations on diagnosis and patient management of all aspects of dialysis therapy. The practical and evidence-based content is authored by international dialysis experts who address a range of topics, including screening predialysis patients and preparing them for renal replacement therapy, how to do hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, followed by chapters focusing on problem areas frequently encountered in dialysis patients. This book is ideal for nephrologists faced with the practical issues of providing dialysis care in both acute and chronic settings as well as for nephrology nurses who want a deeper understanding of dialysis procedures and the challenges often encountered in these often difficult to manage patients. The text summarizes new findings and treatment options that have come into use since the last edition. Features: New expanded coverage of vascular access placement and management New discussion of urgent start peritoneal dialysis New updated section on home and intensive hemodialysis therapies Coverage of topics including: predialysis CKD; hemodialysis, including home hemodialysis and hemodiafiltration and treatment of poisoning; peritoneal dialysis, including physiology, prescription, and management of complications; and special problem areas frequently encountered in these patients, including psychosocial issues, nutrition, diabetes, hypertension, hematologic abnormalities, infections, mineral bone disorder, dialysis in infants and children, cardiovascular diseases, obstetrics and gynecology in dialysis patients, and nervous system and sleep disorders Feedback from Pilot Study Nurses Textbook is very advanced, detailed and technical in nature. A wealth of information and a great reference to have on hand in inpatient dialysis units.
