ABSTRACT

With the rapid expansion of hemodialysis capability throughout the United States, this book is timely and covers in detail an area in which reliable information is much needed, particularly for those who plan to set up facilities for dialysis. The authors have a great deal of experience having worked in one of the outstanding hemodialysis units in the country.

Furthermore, the book has a list of distinguished contributors who have written special sections. There is an excellent discussion of the evolution of chronic hemodialysis from the first work of Kolff to the present. Blaufox's fine section on the physical concepts of hemodialysis provides information not readily available elsewhere.

The book employs a practical approach presenting various dialysis systems and their relative merits, methods of setting up a dialysis unit, and criteria for selection and care of patients. It covers by systems (cardiovascular, hematological, and metabolic) various problems related to hemodialysis;
