The primary aim of this study is to investigate whether intensive sodium management by dietary sodium restriction and by preventing positive sodium balance during dialysis can be successfully applied in chronic hemodialysis patients. Secondary aims are to test if sodium restriction has positive effects on the frequency of hospital admissions, blood pressure, fluid overload, quality of life and residual renal function.

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...
Patients currently receiving hemodialysis will be randomized to receive 1 of 3 dialysate sodium prescriptions. The effects on blood pressure, interdialytic weight gain, thirst, and intrad...
The purpose of this randomized controlled study is to compare the effects of different new dialysis on-line monitoring devices on hemodynamic stability during intermittent hemodialysis in ...
There is no randomized control study to determine if the beneficial effects of beraprost sodium could improve the patency of arteriovenous fistula in hemodialysis patients. Therefore, this...
End stage renal disease (ESRD) is related with increased cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. Hypertension (HT) is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disorder among hemodialysi...
OBJECTIVE To compare dialysate sodium concentration and patient plasma sodium concentration of dogs during intermittent hemodialysis treatments. SAMPLE 211 intermittent hemodialysis treatments perform...
Arterial stiffness (AS) and vascular calcification are significantly related to a high cardiovascular mortality risk in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Intravenous sodium thiosulfate (IV STS) can prevent ...
The choice of the ideal dialysate sodium concentration remains controversial. Most dialysis centers have a standard dialysate concentration. In theory, choosing a dialysate sodium concentration lower ...
Kidney failure requiring hemodialysis is a chronic illness that has physical, psychosocial, and financial consequences. Patients with kidney failure receiving hemodialysis need a renewed focus on self...
A rising prevalence of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) has led to a rise in ESRD-related pericardial syndromes, calling for a better understanding of its pathophysiology, diagnoses, and management. Ure...
Hospital units in which care is provided the hemodialysis patient. This includes hemodialysis centers in hospitals.
Long-term maintenance hemodialysis in the home.
Sodium or sodium compounds used in foods or as a food. The most frequently used compounds are sodium chloride or sodium glutamate.
Hospital units providing continuous surveillance and care to acutely ill infants and children. Neonates are excluded since INTENSIVE CARE UNITS, NEONATAL is available.
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
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...
