The main objective is to establish a statistical predictive model of the risk of intradialytic hypotension during hemodialysis (HD) or hemodiafiltration (HDF) sessions based on the measure...
For the ESRD patients undergoing hemodialysis treatment, specifically, reflex mediated calf muscle pump stimulation has the potential to significantly reduce the number and magnitude of hy...
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...
This clinical study is to observe the improvement of MHD (maintenance hemodialysis) patients, quality of life，after applying therapy combining Auriculotherapy and Shengmai capsule. As a ...
Symptomatic hypotension during (or immediately following) hemodialysis complicates 5 to 30 percent of all dialysis treatments and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Kidn...
Intradialytic hypotension is a clinically significant problem, however, the hemodynamics that underlie ultrafiltration and consequent hypotensive episodes has not been studied comprehensively.
Etelcalcetide is the first intravenous calcimimetic agent authorized for the treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism (sHPT) in patients undergoing hemodialysis in Europe, the US, and Japan. The rel...
Carnitine deficiency is a common condition in hemodialysis patients. There have been numerous reports on the efficacy of levocarnitine therapy in hemodialysis patients, including different views. Repo...
Intradialytic hypotension (IDH) is the most common dialytic complication. Recurrent episodes of ischemia secondary to hemodynamic instability are associated with cardiomyopathy, increased risk of thro...
Falls are a common problem in older people. Postural hypotension contributes to falls but is often asymptomatic. In the absence of symptoms, postural hypotension is only infrequently checked for in cl...
Hospital units in which care is provided the hemodialysis patient. This includes hemodialysis centers in hospitals.
Long-term maintenance hemodialysis in the home.
The combination of hemodialysis and hemofiltration either simultaneously or sequentially. Convective transport (hemofiltration) may be better for removal of larger molecular weight substances and diffusive transport (hemodialysis) for smaller molecular weight solutes.
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).
A significant drop in BLOOD PRESSURE after assuming a standing position. Orthostatic hypotension is a finding, and defined as a 20-mm Hg decrease in systolic pressure or a 10-mm Hg decrease in diastolic pressure 3 minutes after the person has risen from supine to standing. Symptoms generally include DIZZINESS, blurred vision, and SYNCOPE.
