It has been suggested that physical exercise in chronic haemodialysis could improve dialysis dose and reduce postdialysis rebound. A randomised controlled trial to compare a group of patients doing physical exercise during the first 2 hours of haemodialysis sessions and another group doing physical exercise at home. The descriptive variables, dialysis doses measured by KtV, and rebounds (urea, creatinine, potassium, phosphorus), were recorded. For 69 patients: the mean KtV was 1.84; the 30-minute rebound of creatinine was 32.37%, urea 24.39%, potassium 15.31% and phosphorus 51.29%. To each patient, the basal measurement was compared with those determined when performing physical exercise; no statistically significant differences were observed between the changes determined to dose and rebound in the group with haemodialysis exercise compared to those of the home exercise group. In conclusion, performing physical exercise during the first 2 hours of haemodialysis sessions neither lowered postdialysis molecules rebound nor improved dialysis dose.

Muscle weakness is associated with increased mortality risk in chronic haemodialysis (CHD) patients. Protein energy wasting (PEW) and low physical activity could impair muscle quality and contribute t...
Three-day-a-week chronic haemodialysis (cHD) involves 1 long (72 h) and 2 short (48 h) inter-dialytic periods (IDPs). We aimed to determine whether BP control following the long IDP is inferior to the...
Clinical trials are most informative for evidence-based decision-making when they consistently measure and report outcomes of relevance to stakeholders, especially patients, clinicians, and policy mak...
Despite the many benefits of performing physical exercise in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), information on the response of acute cardiac autonomic modulation in subjects w...
The purpose of the trial is to compare the effects of intra-dialytic low-frequency electrical muscle stimulation and intra-dialytic cycling, with usual care haemodialysis without exercise ...
Patients on chronic hemodialysis present severe physical dysfunctioning associated with a significant reduction of their muscle mass. These two parameters are associated with increased mor...
Rationale and objectives 1. Patients on On Line Hemodiafiltration (OL- HDF) are more stable hemodynamically with less Intra Dialytic Hypotension (IDH) episodes compared to conventi...
Low physical activity is associated with in hemodialysis and hemodiafiltration (HDF) patients. Previous studies showed the benefits of intradialytic exercise for improvement of physical fi...
This study evaluates whether the use of moderate physical exercise character in water is beneficial for pregnant women. Half of the participants will carry out moderate physical exercise c...
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
Diet modification and physical exercise to improve the ability to carry out daily tasks and perform physical activities.
Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.
Physical activity which is usually regular and done with the intention of improving or maintaining PHYSICAL FITNESS or HEALTH. Contrast with PHYSICAL EXERTION which is concerned largely with the physiologic and metabolic response to energy expenditure.
Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
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...
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
