About this title:
A translational approach linking pathophysiology to practical clinical recommendations
It is well known that acute, severe hyponatremia is a life-threatening situation. But there is growing evidence that mild and chronic hyponatremia may also have negative consequences. Gait disturbances, attention deficits, falls and fractures, and bone loss have all been reported, with increased mortality in almost every disease state if the patient is hyponatremic.
Disorders of Fluid and Electrolyte Metabolism: Focus on Hyponatremia has been written by key opinion leaders in the field and covers a spectrum of crucial aspects of hyponatremia, including:
- A historical perspective
- Physiology and pathophysiology of water homeostasis
- Epidemiology of hyponatremia, and
- Clinical features.
A detailed description of all available therapies has been incorporated, with a guide to the clinician's approach to key therapeutic situations.
This book will be a valuable resource for all clinicians who manage patients with hyponatremia, and as this topic encompasses all areas of medicine, it will also be of interest to specialists such as endocrinologists, nephrologists and interns.
Editors: Alessandro Peri, Chris J Thompson, and Joseph G Verbalis
