More on the Electrolyte Handbook

I am making a significant commitment to the The Electrolyte Handbook. I plan on making continuous tweaks, corrections, and additions. A quick list of ideas include:
  • More references
  • More pictures
  • More tables and lists
  • Integrated calculator in the e-book version
  • Acid-base chapters
  • Sodium
  • IV fluids
  • CKD
  • ARF
The fact that this is going to be a living book leads to some problems. A website always shows the most up-to-date version, but since the PDF and e-book don't auto-update I have a problem on how to get the most up-dated version in to the hands of users. I have not worried about this issue with my existing hand-outs because the content is entirely conceptual so mistakes did not have clinical implications.

This handbook, however is intended to guide therapy so I need a way to notify users of fixes. So I am going to build an e-mail list. I will only send e-mails when updated versions of the handbook come out. I have no plans to spam. This e-mail is designed to help you, by making sure you are using the most up to date version of the Electrolyte Handbook.
