Abstract

Kidney transplant anesthesia can be a mentally challenging yet rewarding aspect of the anesthesiologist's job. End stage renal disease (ESRD) patients tend to have a medical history that leads to very complex physiology. In this article we will review the pathophysiology of ESRD, the effects of ESRD on other body systems, and how it effects the perioperative management of the ESRD patient.
