Written in a clear, concise, logical style, thistrusted text reviews the fundamental principles of thestructure, function and pathologies of the human kidney that are essential for an understanding of clinical medicine. Combining the latest research with a fullyintegrated teaching approach, the eighth edition of Vander’s Renal Physiology features revised sections that explain how the kidneys affect other body systems and how they in turn are affected by these systems. Each chapter is filled with the tools you need to truly learn key concepts rather than merely memorize facts.

A Doody’s Core Title for 2015!
Doug Eaton is the Distinguished Professor and Chairman of Physiology at Emory University. The goal of his research is to examine the cellular signaling mechanisms which control all aspects of cellular function including cell growth, division, and responses to external stimuli. To examine these signaling mechanisms, he uses contemporary methods of cellular and molecular biology including patch voltage clamp methods and expression of cloned signaling molecules in Xenopus oocytes and other expression systems.
I used this for the anaesthesia primary exam and found it to be excellent.
I disagree with many of the other reviews that it is too long or wordy – I seriously question how many physiology texts they have used as this is far better than most. This was almost my sole reference for renal physiology and it was easy to read cover-to-cover. There are plenty of simple diagrams and a handful of table and schematics for key concepts. It’s very easy to find and quickly read specific topics when it comes to revision, which is a big strength for exams.
If you want to learn basic renal physiology almost entirely from diagrams then this is not your book – you should probably just be using the internet. If you want concise and accurate explanations of all the important aspects of renal physiology in a short and easy-to-read book, then buy this.
