We Use Permcaths Instead of Peritoneal Catheters for Acute Kidney Injury and Urgent-Start Dialysis.

The rising tide of severe acute kidney injury requiring dialysis (AKI-D) and unplanned dialysis initiation for advanced CKD patients remains a major problem for the nephrology community worldwide. Hem...

Predictors and Outcomes of Post-Hospitalization Dialysis Dependent Acute Kidney Injury.

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a frequent complication of hospitalized patients and is associated with poor outcomes. Hospitalized patients with AKI may need prolonged dialysis, necessitating post-hospi...

Candidate Gene Analysis of Mortality in Dialysis Patients.

Dialysis patients have high cardiovascular mortality risk. This study aimed to investigate the association between SNPs of genes involved in vascular processes and mortality in dialysis patients.

Patterns of Dialysis Initiation Affect Outcomes of Incident Hemodialysis Patients.

There is a trend toward deferring the initiation of chronic dialysis until absolutely indicated. This strategy, however, might lead to increased uncertainties in the timing of dialysis access creation...

Plasma Adiponectin Levels in Acute Liver Failure Patients Treated with Plasma Filtration with Dialysis and Plasma Exchange.

Plasma filtration with dialysis (PDF) is a blood purification therapy in which simple plasma exchange (PE) is performed using a selective membrane plasma separator while the dialysate flows outside of...

Amantadine for Treatment of Symptoms of the Post-Traumatic Confusional State

Patients with traumatic brain injury often experience a period of acute confusion that may include agitation as they recover from their injuries. While this confusion generally resolves w...

Comparison of Dialysis Strategies in Critically Ill Patients With Acute Renal Failure

The goal of the present study is the comparison of different dialysis strategies in critically ill patients with acute renal failure on the intensive care unit. Patients are treated with e...

Uremic Toxins in the Intensive Care Units (ICU): Patients With Lactate Acidosis

Study of the kinetics of uremic toxins in the ICU patients with acute renal failure, in order to optimize the dialysis dose: patients with lactate acidosis. The sampling of blood and dialy...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.

Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.

An acute or subacute inflammatory process of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM characterized histologically by multiple foci of perivascular demyelination. Symptom onset usually occurs several days after an acute viral infection or immunization, but it may coincide with the onset of infection or rarely no antecedent event can be identified. Clinical manifestations include CONFUSION, somnolence, FEVER, nuchal rigidity, and involuntary movements. The illness may progress to COMA and eventually be fatal. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p921)

Dialysis fluid being introduced into and removed from the peritoneal cavity as either a continuous or an intermittent procedure.

Artificially produced membranes, such as semipermeable membranes used in artificial kidney dialysis (RENAL DIALYSIS), monomolecular and bimolecular membranes used as models to simulate biological CELL MEMBRANES. These membranes are also used in the process of GUIDED TISSUE REGENERATION.

In medicine, dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood, and is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturba...
