Site Description:
Hypertension, Dialysis, and Clinical Nephrology provides up-to-date, selected information on renal disorders and their treatment (hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis), and about hypertension, dialysis, and clinical nephrology topics.
Hypertension, Dialysis, and Clinical Nephrology is a place for physicians and nurses who treat patients with kidney or renal disease. Here physicians and nurses can find answers to frequently asked hypertension, dialysis, and nephrology questions (FAQ), pointers to recent review articles, and summaries of hot new hypertension, dialysis, and nephrology papers, abstracts, and meeting presentations. Also, information about medical products, devices, services, and drugs pertaining to hypertension, dialysis, and clinical nephrology are provided, as is a list of links to relevant hypertension / dialysis / transplantation organizations, medical provider networks, and databases. Much of the information presented is collected from a distinguished editorial board composed of specialists in the field of kidney or renal disease.
