Because of its inherent logic, focus on pathophysiology, and clinical relevance

to a broad group of patients, nephrology has always appealed to some of the
sharpest minds and most profound thinkers in medicine. The teaching of this
discipline has also always been challenging, and many learners find nephrol-
ogy to be a difficult subspecialty of medicine.
The idea of writing the Handbook of Nephrology was not ours. Over many
years, our students have told us that our teaching provided them with learning
strategies and learning content not always found in current books. This Hand-
book of Nephrology is a concise introduction to the field which is primarily
directed at medical students, interns, and residents. We believe primary care
physicians, internists, surgeons, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and physi-
cian assistants will also find the book useful. The book is not primarily aimed
at nephrology fellows and board-certified nephrologists; however, we believe
it may also be helpful as a teaching aid to nephrology fellows and faculty.
Many people assisted us in bringing this book to fruition. We would like
to especially acknowledge two of them, Dr. John Daugirdas, clinical profes-
sor of medicine at University of Illinois Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois, and
Dr.Todd Ing, professor emeritus of nephrology at Loyola University Medical
Center, Maywood, Illinois. Dr. Daugirdas assisted in developing the concept
for this book, and Dr. Ing reviewed and commented on all of the content.
This book is meant to be a pocketbook. It is not a comprehensive text-
book. Certain more specialized topics, such as transplantation and renal
genomics, are not covered. Rather than provide encyclopedic knowledge, we
hope that this book will facilitate the understanding of concepts which will
stimulate the acquisition of knowledge and the application of knowledge.
