The field of intensive care in nephrology is a rapidly evolving one, with research starting to translate into clinical guidelines and standards. Encompassing core subjects in critical care and nephrology, as well as specific related consultative topics, this clearly presented text is organized into three sections focusing on: * up-to-date background information on the critically ill patient, including chapters on respiratory, circulatory, renal, and multi-organ failure * core topics in ICU nephrology, including prevention and medical therapy of acute renal failure (ARF), and provision of a variety of renal replacement therapy (RRT) modalities * a series of common ICU consultative nephrology topics.
