Summary

This book is designed for all renal nurses and for general nurses who care for patients with impaired renal function.Renal disease is on the increase in western society and as a result there is a growing need for well educated renal nurses. This practical book will assist in the development of high quality renal nurses and nurse practitioners. This book offers a practical approach to guide nurses in the art and science of renal care. It is holistic as well as technical, therapeutic and compassionate in its approach. Acute and chronic renal failure, renal osteodystrophy and other selected diseases are comprehensively discussed. The nurse's role with regard to specific treatments such as peritoneal dialysis, haemodialysis, plasma exchange and haemoperfusion as well as organ transplantation procedures are discussed in detail. There is also a section that relates specifically to paediatric care. The final section of the book is devoted to the use of complementary therapies and alternative medicine in renal disease.
