books on hemodialysis

Can anyone recommend a good book to learn about hemodialysis? I'm an experienced nurse, but I really don't know much about it. Thanks

Not free but sometimes you can buy them used.

Another source, medical libraries or college libraries.

According to MedInfoNow, which provides the most comprehensive database of books available in the health sciences, the most current information on hemodialysis can be found in Gulanik/Nursing Care Plans: Nursing Diagnosis and Intervention, 7th edition, published in 2010. A search of the books database at MedInfoNow also revealed that a new book is going to be published in 2011 on the topic, Kallenbach / Review of Hemodialysis for Nurses and Dialysis Personnel, 8th edition, published by Mosby.”
