A good knowledge of renal physiology is essential to the understanding of many disease states. The purpose of the book is to set out the principles of renal physiology and normal renal function. Now in its 30th year of continuous publication, this new edition offers a logical progression through renal physiology and pathophysiology. In addition, the anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and pathology of the kidney are covered – making it highly suitable for system based courses. This 5th edition has been extensively revised and features a wealth of new and widely accepted information about kidney function. This includes our understanding of the role of the glycocalyx and structural proteins in glomerular filtration; details of tubular transport, tight junctions and paracellular transport; and an update of the loops of Henle functioning. Principles of Renal Physiology, 5th Edition is a concise and easily readable text ideal for undergraduate medical and medical science students.

The strengths of this popular text - its conciseness and logical progression through renal physiology and pathophysiology - are retained in the 4th edition. The text has been updated throughout, and the content has been expanded to make the book eminently suitable for `systems-based' courses. The book is designed for the needs of medical undergraduates but many doctors are likely to find it useful too.

This book will provide the reader with an overview of the essential meanings of key words in the physiology of various organ systems. This book is linked to a Question and Answer book on these organ systems that was published previously by Springer and will focus on cardiovascular, pulmonary and renal physiology. Each physiology system will be organized in to five different sections, covering the main areas of interest and each section will contain at least ten clear definitions of the main topics in this area. This book will present an easy reference guide for those just starting out in the area of physiology and for those who are interested in clear and succinct definitions of key terms.
