Renal and Urinary Systems
This book was written with the aim of presenting subjects that are complex and important for medical students in a concise and understandable way. It follows the successful approach of previous editions, being written by medical students thus pitched at an appropriate level for my busy peers.
For the new edition the content has been reorganised to remove the separation between clinical and pre-clinical subjects. Thus, one will now read about the physiology of osmolality control alongside hyponatraemia and hypernatraemia. This has removed an element of repetition in the text and immediately highlights the relevance of the basic medical science.
The self assessment section now consists of single best answer and extended matching questions to reflect the trend of examination at medical school and beyond. I hope that you find the book useful and interesting and that you enjoy using it for learning and revision.
Diseases of the urinary tract have traditionally been seen as a challenging subject for medical students. This Crash Course book sets out to ensure the subject matter
is presented in a logical and concise way making the subject matter readily accessible to the student. As with all Crash Course books, the text is authored by a medical student with expert input from a Faculty Advisor me and the series editor.
This 4th edition of this Crash Course: Renal and Urinary Systems book has undergone extensive revision. The text has been reorganised to ensure that there is integration between ‘preclinical’ pathophysiological concepts and ‘clinical’ presentations of disease. This approach will provide the student with a logical theoretical basis for solving the sorts of problems that are commonly encountered in clinical practice. At the same time the text has been updated with reference to the latest internationally recognized classifications of both chronic kidney disease (CKD) and acute kidney injury (AKI).
A revised self assessment section is designed to provide the student with a basis on which to ensure they have a well grounded understanding of the subject matter not only to ensure they a ready for their exams but also to stimulate them to continue with self-directed learning.
