This is a non-randomized, open label, uncontrolled first in human safety study, testing the the material used in the artificial kidney device in subjects already on hemodialysis. Six subj...
This is a multiple dose, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical study conducted in Chinese subjects residing in Mainland China with chronic kidney disease receiving hemodial...
Randomized controlled trial comparing effects of ergometer exercise during hemodialysis to effects of pedometer use outside of hemodialysis on exercise capacity, functional status, quality...
Adequacy of solute clearance makes a profound impact on clinical outcome in maintenance hemodialysis patients. Thus far, guidelines on the target of solute clearance (Kt/V or URR) are base...
The optimal frequency of hemodialysis treatments in patients with incident end-stage kidney disease in not known. This pilot trial will randomize patients with incident end-stage kidney di...
Contamination by metals and microbiological agents in hemodialysis water can cause clinical intercurrences in hemodialysis patients. Evaluating and assuring minimum levels of contamination from metals...
For diabetes patients without nephropathy, glycemic control is important to reduce the risk or delay the progression of diabetes complications, including nephropathy. In diabetes patients on hemodialy...
Although some clinical practice guidelines regarding hemodialysis recommend salt restriction, few studies have examined the association between salt intake and clinical outcomes in hemodialysis patien...
Laser hair reduction is a well-established modality for a wide range of medical indications. Laser hair reduction can be beneficial for hemodialysis patients who undergo repeated adhesive tape applica...
There is increasing evidence that extended-hours regimens are associated with improved outcomes for patients on maintenance hemodialysis programs. Home hemodialysis programs are a well established way...
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).
Apparatus that provides mechanical circulatory support during open-heart surgery, by passing the heart to facilitate surgery on the organ. The basic function of the machine is to oxygenate the body's venous supply of blood and then pump it back into the arterial system. The machine also provides intracardiac suction, filtration, and temperature control. Some of the more important components of these machines include pumps, oxygenators, temperature regulators, and filters. (UMDNS, 1999)
