From the reviews:“This is a practical and concise handbook on the management of patients with cardiorenal syndrome. … The audience is not limited to nephrologists or to cardiologists, but includes basically anybody involved in the care of patients with heart failure/disease and renal insufficiency. … What I particularly like about this book is the way it addresses in a systematic manner day-to-day, clinical practice questions.” (Mony Fraer, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2012)
