About this book
Nolph and Gokal's Text Book of Peritoneal Dialysis, Third Edition, covers advances made in this field for the past 30 years. During the past two decades, the time during which this therapy has been increasingly utilized, this text has continued to be recognized as the major source of the discipline's base knowledge. The evolution of this text to its newest edition parallels the growth of peritoneal dialysis from Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis in the eighties to the current therapy that encompasses manual and automated therapies with full emphasis on adequacy of dialysis dose.

From the reviews of the third edition:“Textbook of Peritoneal Dialysis is perhaps the most in-depth publication on this dialysis technique. … the ideal starting place for anyone wanting to revisit PD as a dialysis therapy, or for those already converted to its benefits to find information to support its wider use. … This book is detailed, easy to read, relevant and topical. It should be available to every renal department. … Nowhere else can you find such a broad and detailed description of the modality of PD in one volume.” (Journal of Renal Nursing, Vol. 2 (1), January/February, 2010)
