Synopsis:
Fluids & Electrolytes Made Incredibly Easy, Sixth Edition, uses a conversational writing style to break down complex concepts and make the fundamentals of fluids and electrolytes easy to understand and put into practice. This fully revised, updated book is organized into four parts to provide comprehensive coverage of this challenging topic:

- Fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base basics 
- Fluid and electrolyte imbalances 
- The importance and management of imbalances in major health problems 
- Treatments 

Each chapter includes clear, simple explanations of health problems, definitions of key terms, illustrations that clearly explain key concepts, memory joggers, and bullets and checklists that make it easy to spot important points at a glance. Chapter summaries provide a quick review of all essential information, and special elements found throughout the text make it easy to remember key points:

- Quick-scan tables, illustrations, and flow charts focus on key information
- “Ages and stages" icons identify age-related considerations 
- "Chart smart" sections outline all the points that require documentation for a specific imbalance or condition 
- "It's not working" icons tell the reader what to do when standard interventions aren't getting results 
- "Teaching points" focus on topics to teach patients 
- "Uh-oh" icons help the reader quickly recognize dangerous or life-threatening signs and symptoms 
- Quick reference appendices on fluid and electrolyte differences in pediatric and geriatric populations.
