This book is an important contribution to a subject that is less well taught, the management of Intravenous Fluids, Electrolytes Disorders and acute kidney injury (AKI) in Adults. The objective of the book is to promote quality in patients’ care, particularly in the ’developing’ countries where access to resources is limited. The notes are meant to provide information to aid trainees and general clinicians caring for adult patients. The stepwise structure given in the clinical management flowcharts is to ensure simplification and consistency in clinical decision-making. The practical exercises are basic, to consolidate important clinical themes.
