fm7Contributors fm9Preface
The idea of a joint effort in editing of Practical Procedures in Pediatric Nephrology was conceived many years ago, for guiding trainees/residents, who sometimes struggle with simple things, such as choosing a proper size of Foley's catheter and putting it in a child.
This book is written as a practical guide to procedures commonly performed by physicians, trainees, junior doctors and nurses in pediatric nephrology practice. Although there are quite a number of procedural books, hardly any have been written keeping the pediatric nephrology community in mind and focusing only on procedures.
In this first edition of Practical Procedures in Pediatric Nephrology, we have put together the common bedside procedures and interventions in pediatric nephrology practice. This book covers and describes in detail, step-by-step procedures with supporting photographs to aid understanding. We hope that this book will prove useful in this practical field.
We express our thanks to all the contributors for their dedicated professionalism. We would like to thank our teachers, students, trainees, for reminding our educational mission and for their continuous motivation.
We would also like to extend our appreciation to Shri Jitendar P Vij (Group Chairman), Mr Ankit Vij (Group President), and all the staff of M/s Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers (P) Ltd, New Delhi, India, for their efforts and inputs enabling timely publication of the book.
