In the past decade, CRRT has moved from a niche therapy within specific specialty centers to the standard of care for management of critically ill patients with acute renal failure. Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy provides concise, evidence-based, to-the-point bedside guidance about this treatment modality, offering quick reference answers to clinicians’ questions about treatments and situations encountered in daily practice. Organized into sections on Theory; Pratice; Special Situations; and Organizational Issues, Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy provides a complete view of CRRT theory and practice. Generous tables summarize and highlight key points, and key studies and trials are listed in each chapter.

Foot ulcers occur in approximately 15% of the patients with diabetes mellitus in their lifetime, with a major impact on their quality of life. Many hospital admissions related to diabetes are due to foot ulcers, which can result in prolonged hospital stay and increased morbidity and mortality. The majority of lower limb amputations are performed in patients with diabetes every year (80,000 at least in the USA). Most of the diabetes-related foot problems can be prevented or their severity reduced by early detection and treatment. This book contributes to improved foot care through raised awareness of prevention, clinical manifestations, diagnosis and management among healthcare professionals.

This comprehensive atlas, now in a second edition, provides:

* 520 colour photographs, graphs, tables and imaging studies
* Educational examples taken from genuine case reports
* A reference guide for identifying patients at risk for foot problems
* Illustration of common problems such as neuropathic and neuroischaemic ulcers, ischaemia and infection
* Introduction to new technologies and bioengineered materials used for the treatment of foot ulcers

This book will be of interest to diabetologists, endocrinologists, podiatrists, specialist nurses, general practitioners, surgeons and clinical researchers.

The accreditation process for anesthesia in the United States is considered one of the most difficult in all medical specialties, with residents required to pass both an oral and written exam to gain certification. This book is specially designed for the American Board of Anesthesiology Oral Examination. The evidence-based approach is presented in a concise outline-oriented format, with an emphasis on test results and visual images. The Knockout Treatment Plan demonstrates the correct method of managing the case to the satisfaction of the examiners, while the Technical Knockout sections give additional tips for successfully passing the examination. The straightforward format of this book makes it suitable not only as an oral review book but also as an introduction to anesthesia rotations for medical students, medical interns, and nurse anesthetist students; furthermore, the book can be used as a technical study guide for anesthesia residents. More than 100 topics in this book have already been board-review tested by residents.
