"For anyone and everyone that hated renal physiology, this is the DVD for you. Barb explains, in a simplified way, primary diseases of the kidney as well as the kidney as "an innocent bystander" in diseases such as lupus, drug-induced nephropathy, CHF, rhabdomyolysis, and more. Barb will also discuss the interpretation of lab tests and kidney function as well as the myriad of drugs that affect and protect the kidney. The diabetic kidney, the hypertensive kidney, the kidney in acute failure, and other conditions will be described." -- Barb Bancroft website.
