19 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Severe sepsis is among the most common causes of death in the United States and the most common cause of death in the Intensive Care Units worldwide, and its recognition and treatment remain the most important challenges of critical care medicine. Severe sepsis and septic shock have a profound effect on kidney function and the function of other organs through complex mechanisms, which involve the immune response, multiple pro and anti-inflammatory pathways, intracellular dysfunction and hemodynamic instability. Their optimal management requires complex knowledge of general medicine, immunology, nephrology, extra-corporeal technology, fluid resuscitation and critical care endocrinology. In order to deliver optimal patient care, nephrologists and intensive care medicine specialists need to understand and be highly knowledgeable in the epidemiology of sepsis, the mechanisms of injury which determine outcome and the fundamental aspects of new insights into fluid resuscitation, acid-base physiology and glucose control. They also need to have a clear appreciation of new technical developments in the monitoring of critically ill patients and in the delivery of advanced extra-corporeal blood purification therapies. Experts from the fields of intensive care medicine, nephrology, endocrinology, acid-base physiology, extra-corporeal blood purification technology and immunology have contributed to the present book, providing a cutting edge view of developments in each field which contribute to the care of patients with severe sepsis, acute renal failure and multiple organ failure. The resulting mix of fundamental knowledge and recent developments from clinical trials and laboratory research constitute a valuable tool for all professionals involved in the care of the critically ill patient

Management of acute kidney problems by Achim Jörres( )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acute kidney failure is an important clinical area in the intensive care unit setting. An estimated 5.20% of critically ill patients experience an episode of acute kidney failure during the course of their illness, and about 5% of patients admitted to an ICU will eventually require renal replacement therapy. In these patients, in-hospital mortality is extremely high, exceeding 50%. Thus, the early detection and causal treatment of acute kidney problems is vitally important for a successful outcome. Written by internationally renowned experts, this clinical reference offers helpful advice with the most recent information on the definition, epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical causes of acute kidney failure as a fundamental prerequisite for prevention of this disorder. Moreover, it also covers differential diagnostic approaches for patients with acute renal failure and provides a detailed outline of important measures for their clinical management.

Peritoneal dialysis today by C Ronco( )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is an invaluable tool in the treatment of patients with end-stage renal disease, which does not preclude a renal transplant, but incurs lower costs than other treatment options and represents an alternative when the vascular access is not feasible. Moreover, PD can be integrated in the armamentarium of different therapies and constitutes an important option when logistical or organizational problems are present. The publication on hand gives an account of the most recent studies on PD outcome and adequacy, exploring how different fluids, schedules and techniques may help to determine the most tolerated and effective dialysis for each patient. Novel systems including continuous flow PD are probing new limits of efficiency and performance. Biocompatibility and adequate correction of anemia are also among the issues discussed in this book, giving the reader the opportunity to refresh or expand his knowledge in the field. This publication definitely deserves a place on the desk of those who are engaged in the day-by-day activity of PD." -- Prové de l'editor
Automated peritoneal dialysis by C Ronco( )

14 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) has been the standard peritoneal procedure since the seventies, different schedules of automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) have emerged during the eighties. Today, APD is considered a valuable tool in the management of ESRD patients, together with CAPD and hemodialysis. However, despite its frequent use, APD has Paragraph not yet been well assessed, and most pathophysiological and clinical studies on PD refer to CAPD. In this book, major experts in the field therefore discuss and evaluate the insights gained on APD up to now, presenting a comprehensive review of all experimental, technical and clinical aspects related to the various treatments grouped under the definition of APD. The recent developments presented are divided into four sections: membrane permeability, transport mechanisms and kinetic modeling applied to APD; prescription and adequacy of different APD treatment schedules; dialysis machines and solutions for APD, and, lastly, different clinical aspects such as the possibility to maintain APD program and residual renal function. Physicians involved in ESRD care, renal fellows and scientists both in the academic world and in the hospital setting will undoubtedly profit from this timely publication

Blood purification in intensive care : proceedings of the Second International Course on Critical Care Nephrology, Vicenza, May 22-25, 2001 by C Ronco( )

17 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the last twenty years, critical care medicine has been established as a specialty with its own therapies and procedures, with significant implications for clinical nephrology regarding severe acute renal failure. This typically multi-factorial condition is today predominantly seen in intensive care units. The complex knowledge and skills necessary to handle it have resulted in a field called Critical Care Nephrology, where nephrologist and intensivist either work side by side or have formally acquired expertise and training in both specialties. Extracorporeal renal replacement therapies, although originally used to treat end-stage renal disease patients, rapidly gained importance for acute patients. This has had far-reaching implications for the initiation and possible role of blood purification in the management of critically ill patients, widening the scope of interaction between the nephrologist and the intensivist.Experts in the field have contributed to the present book, providing a comprehensive review of the different blood purification techniques relevant in the intensive care unit in the case of multiple organ failure. The resulting mix of established knowledge and recent results from both clinical trials and basic research constitutes a valuable tool for all professionals involved in the care of the critically ill patient." -- Prové de l'editor
Hyperuricemic syndromes : pathophysiology and therapy by C Ronco( )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uric acid disorders are involved in both nephrological and hematological diseases. One of these crystal-associated diseases which has been known since antiquity is gout. More recently, tumor Lysis syndromes have been identified which affect patients with cancer, especially in the phase of cellular destruction after chemotherapy. The detection of these hyperuricemic syndromes, together with the improved understanding of urate handling by the kidney, have spurred new interest in the pathophysiology of hyperuricemic states, their clinical consequences and management. Moreover, the recent development of a recombinant form of urate oxidase transforming uric acid into allantoin (Rasburicase) has caused new interest in the pathophysiology of hyperuricemia and the potential applications of this new drug. The multidisciplinary approach of this book offers new insights into the metabolic syndromes in question by uniting authors from the fields of biochemistry, pharmacology, rheumatology, onco-hematology, and nephrology. The result is a compendium of the present knowledge in the field, which will also be very useful as a reference tool for professionals and students who want to expand their knowledge on this topic
Dialysis, dialyzers, and sorbents : where are we going? by C Ronco( )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last decade, the availability of new devices and membranes has led to the development of modern hemodialysis techniques in which clinical tolerance and efficiency have significantly improved patient morbidity and mortality. Nevertheless, there are still limitations imposed by hemodialysis, manifested by the long-term complications occurring in patients treated for several years. Since most of these complications seem to be related to the chronic inflammation of ESRD patients and the progressive accumulation of middle-large molecules such as beta-2-microglobulin, GIP, leptin and others, a novel approach is needed, capable of adequately removing these substances from the body of the patient. New polymers with a biocompatible surface and high affinity for specific molecules have already been introduced to the market, and adsorption might in fact represent a new form of solute removal. Featuring articles by renowned experts, this volume provides the reader with a comprehensive summary of the most updated technology in the field of hemodialysis. New devices and techniques are described and discussed in detail, complemented by preliminary results; the rationale for adsorptive therapies completes the analysis. Residents and fellows, as well as staff physicians and members of the academic and scientific community involved in practice and research in the field of hemodialysis will find this book a valuable addition to their bookshelves
