Abstract

Dialysis Review, based on a meeting sponsored by the Yorkshire Kidney Research Fund in September 1977, considers facilities for end-stage renal failure and dialysis schedules (in the United Kingdom); hemodialysis in acute hepatic coma; vascular access; the problems of anemia, hypertension, disturbances in calcium and phosphate metabolism, and progressive dialysis encephalopathy (“dialysis dementia”); and possible future developments. The last section deals with hemodialysis in pediatric patients. The Essentials in Hemodialysis, a color-illustrated paperbound manual, is intended for general practitioners or hospital physicians dealing with uremic patients or for medical school graduates and students, public health officers, dialysis nurses, and patients
