Ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac deaths are the most common cause of mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Index of cardiac-electrophysiological balance (iCEB) (QT/QRS) may predict malignant ventricular arrhythmias. In this study, we investigated whether iCEB value is increased in ESRD patients and whether it changes before and after hemodialysis.

Although higher body mass index (BMI) is associated with better survival in patients undergoing dialysis, BMI is not an adequate obesity indicator. We hypothesized that the fat-to-lean (F/L) mass rati...
Cardiac valve calcification (CVC) in maintenance hemodialysis patients is associated with adverse cardiovascular outcomes. However, whether de novo CVC in incident hemodialysis patients predicts futur...
Better nutritional reserves are proposed as a mechanism for the protective role of obesity in hemodialysis. Little is known about the quality of diet as a major contributor to nutritional status, spec...
Protein energy wasting (PEW) is a risk factor for death. However, the cutoff vales for PEW are not optimized for early identification of hemodialysis patients with malnutrition. We evaluated the progn...
Decades of focus on selective ion channel blockade has been dismissed as an effective approach to antiarrhythmic drug development. In that context many older antiarrhythmic drugs lacking ion channel s...
The purpose of the study is to measure the effects of AZD1305 on cardiac electrophysiological properties and intracardiac pressures
An important reason for the costs of hemodialysis treatment in China are expensive is the hemodialysis machine and related products mainly rely on imports. Hemodialysis machine is the basi...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the change of serum and dialysate sodium level during hemodialysis can influence on blood pressure and intradialytic weight gain in chroni...
Less than half of the patients suffering from sudden cardiac arrest arrive at the hospital alive. Within these survivors less than half will be discharged alive from the hospital without b...
The research is designed as a prospective, randomized, controlled clinical trial without blinding. A total of 116 participants with hyperphosphatemia will be enrolled from three hemodialys...
The hemodynamic and electrophysiological action of the left HEART VENTRICLE. Its measurement is an important aspect of the clinical evaluation of patients with heart disease to determine the effects of the disease on cardiac performance.
Solutions prepared for hemodialysis. The composition of the pre-dialysis solution may be varied in order to determine the effect of solvated metabolites on anoxia, malnutrition, acid-base balance, etc. Of principal interest are the effect of the choice of buffers (e.g., acetate or carbonate), the addition of cations (Na+, K+, Ca2+), and addition of carbohydrates (glucose).
Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
Hospital units in which care is provided the hemodialysis patient. This includes hemodialysis centers in hospitals.
The balance between acids and bases in the BODY FLUIDS. The pH (HYDROGEN-ION CONCENTRATION) of the arterial BLOOD provides an index for the total body acid-base balance.
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...
