Dr Abelow wrote this book for both learning and review. The beginning chapter gives a quick overview of the chemistry behind the acid-base processes in the system, and he describes the “normal” process before delving into the abnormalities that can occur. Acid-base is a difficult topic that bears repeated study. This book’s focus on the topic helps make the subject relevant to daily practice. There are many diagrams, tables, and footnotes that provide additional insight for the reader. This guide would be a great book for anyone just learning about acid-base, as well as anyone reviewing for certification examinations to brush up on the subject.
