The purpose of this study is to determine whether the treatment of peritoneal ultrafiltration can improve survival and quality of life of refractory congestive heart failure with special a...
Patients with severe congestive heart failure show increased fluid body content which is often resistant to conventional diuretic therapy. Therefore, chronic heart failure patients have f...
study will assess the effect the ultrafiltration after pediatric congenital heart surgery on cardiopulmonary bypass. patients will be divided into two groups. first group will receive ultr...
The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of trials that change the dialysis ultrafiltration rate (UFR) by limiting the maximum rate and to estimate the extent to which limiting...
A Feasibility Study of Peritoneal Ultrafiltration With a Wearable Device, CLS UF, That Adds a Glucose-salt Solution to the Intraperitoneal Fluid in the Device, in Order to Maintain a Stable Intraperitoneal Osmolarity and Thereby Enhance Ultrafiltration.
The study is a proof-of-concept, a feasibility study of peritoneal ultrafiltration with a wearable device, Carry Life System Ultrafiltration (CLS UF) and will be performed on 4-6 stable pe...
Ultrafiltration rate (UFR) has attracted attention as a modifiable aspect of volume management.
In the present study, TiO2-coated ultrafiltration membranes were prepared and used for oily water filtration (droplet size
Little is known about the relationship between breastfeeding and hypertension. We performed this study to identify whether breastfeeding itself influenced maternal hypertension and whether degree of o...
Hypertension is frequently studied in surveys; however, prehypertension, a new blood pressure status between normotension and hypertension, is rarely reported.
The separation of particles from a suspension by passage through a filter with very fine pores. In ultrafiltration the separation is accomplished by convective transport; in DIALYSIS separation relies instead upon differential diffusion. Ultrafiltration occurs naturally and is a laboratory procedure. Artificial ultrafiltration of the blood is referred to as HEMOFILTRATION or HEMODIAFILTRATION (if combined with HEMODIALYSIS).
Extracorporeal ultrafiltration technique without hemodialysis for treatment of fluid overload and electrolyte disturbances affecting renal, cardiac, or pulmonary function.
A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.
Hypertension due to RENAL ARTERY OBSTRUCTION or compression.
Increased pressure within the cranial vault. This may result from several conditions, including HYDROCEPHALUS; BRAIN EDEMA; intracranial masses; severe systemic HYPERTENSION; PSEUDOTUMOR CEREBRI; and other disorders.
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved on October 8th 2013 Adempas® (riociguat) tablets for: (i) the treatment of adults with persistent/recurrent chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) (WHO* Group 4) after ...
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...
