Editorial Reviews: Review “It is a good book and it looks at an area that often does not get a lot of coverage and there is plenty to learn about the topic from this book. I think it would be ideal for healthcare professionals new to dialysis or those wanting to learn more.”- Glycosmedia –This text refers to the flexibound edition.
