Disaster Nephrology A New Concept for an Old Problem
Sever, M., Lameire, N., Van Biesen, W., and Vanholder, R. (2015). Disaster Nephrology: A New Concept for an Old Problem. Clinical Kidney Journal. 8(3): 300-309.
The authors discuss the concept of “disaster nephrology,” which they define as, “the handling of the many medical and logistic problems in treating kidney patients in difficult circumstances.” They review post-disaster clinical and logistical challenges that arise in treating both patients with chronic kidney disease, and those with acute kidney injury as a result of the disaster.
