Koeppen, Bruce M. and Bruce A. Stanton.
The Mosby physiology monograph series
Koeppen (medicine, Quinnipiac U.) and Stanton (microbiology and immunology and physiology, Dartmouth College) offer a concise overview that explains the functions of the kidneys to allied health students. They cover the physiology of bodily fluids; the structure of the kidneys; glomerular filtration and renal blood flow; renal transport mechanisms; regulation of body fluid osmolality, extracellular fluid volume and sodium chloride balance, potassium and acid-base balance, and calcium and phosphate homeostasis; and the physiology of diuretic action. This edition updates the highlighted text boxes related to the cellular level and the clinic, and updates clinical material, key physiologic principles, multiple-choice questions, self-study problems, and case studies. Some old material has been removed. Online access to the full text is included.
