Abstract
Through case presentations and a question and answer format, Clinical Decisions in Nephrology, Hypertension and Renal Transplantation provides a state of the art, updated reference for the optimal management of patients with diseases of the kidneys, and hypertension. This volume starts with the assessment of the patient, focusing on history and physical examination. Subsequently, cases depicting various clinical syndromes and/or diseases are presented, with questions centering on the appropriate diagnostic and treatment strategy. This sets the stage for a Socratic approach' to learning between the attending physician and the house staff or medical student. This is the only book featuring problem-oriented true to life clinical cases in this format to cover nephrology, hypertension and kidney transplantation. Written by renowned actively practicing clinicians, this unique reference is both comprehensive and concise and will be of great value to hospitalists and internists, as well as students, and interns/residents rotating in nephrology and internal medicine.Clinical practitioners, in the fields of critical care and hypertension specialists would also find this of value.

Abstract
Si votre corps manque d’oxygène en raison d’une carence en fer, il se peut que vous soyez fatigué ou essoufflé. On appelle cela l’anémie ferriprive. Beaucoup de patients atteints d’insuffisance rénale chronique (IRC) ou dialysés souffrent d’anémie, car ils n’ont pas assez de globules rouges, et le corps a besoin de fer pour les fabriquer. Prendre du fer par injection permet donc au corps d’avoir suffisamment de fer pour fabriquer de l’hémoglobine, c’est-à-dire la protéine qui transporte l’oxygène. Ce dépliant explique comment prendre du fer injectable, ses effets possibles et comment le conserver.
This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1495, "Injectable Iron and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)". If your body is not getting enough oxygen due to lack of iron, you may feel tired or short of breath. This is called iron deficiency anemia. Many patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), or who are on dialysis, have anemia because their red blood cells are low. The body needs iron to help make new red blood cells. Getting iron injections can help make sure that you have enough iron in your body to make the oxygen-carrying part (hemoglobin) of your red blood cells. This pamphlet explains how to take injectable iron, side effects to watch for, and instructions on how to store the medication.

Hepatitis B is a virus (germ) that attacks the liver. About half of the people who have the virus never feel sick, and they can spread the disease without knowing it. Hepatitis B is spread when blood or other body fluids from a person who has the virus enter the body of someone who does not have the virus. The virus can cause serious liver problems, including liver damage, liver failure, and liver cancer. The best way to prevent Hepatitis B is to get vaccinated. Possible side effects are listed…

Abstract
Hepatitis B is a virus (germ) that attacks the liver. About half of the people who have the virus never feel sick, and they can spread the disease without knowing it. Hepatitis B is spread when blood or other body fluids from a person who has the virus enter the body of someone who does not have the virus. The virus can cause serious liver problems, including liver damage, liver failure, and liver cancer. The best way to prevent Hepatitis B is to get vaccinated. Possible side effects are listed. You should not get the vaccine if you have a fever or illness other than a minor cold or if you have had a life-threatening reaction to a previous dose of Hepatitis B vaccine or any component (part) of the vaccine.

Abstract
This book guides readers through a wide spectrum of clinical presentations in patients with arterial hypertension and different degrees of renal impairment, ranging from asymptomatic urine abnormalities to end stage renal disease. On the basis of six case studies, the author reviews and discusses current guidelines and recommendations aimed at optimizing the diagnostic and therapeutic approach both to renal and cardiovascular risk in commonly encountered real-world clinical scenarios including challenging cases of diabetic kidney disease, ischemic nephropathy and resistant hypertension. It also explores anti-hypertensive drug combinations, including single or multiple RAAS-I, lipid lowering and antiplatelet drugs, as well as the appropriate use of glucose lowering drugs in the context of chronic kidney disease. This handy and practical book provides physicians in the area of general and internal medicine, as well as specialists in the cardiovascular, metabolic and renal fields valuable insights into optimal therapeutic targets for blood pressure and glucose control in renal patients.
