  • dialysate
  • Additionally, it can be used to balance buffer between sample and the solution "dialysis bath" or "dialysate" that the sample is in. (wikipedia.org)
  • Blood flows by one side of a semi-permeable membrane, and a dialysate, or special dialysis fluid, flows by the opposite side. (wikipedia.org)
  • The concentrations of solutes (for example potassium, phosphorus and urea) are undesirably high in the blood, but low or absent in the dialysis solution, and constant replacement of the dialysate ensures that the concentration of undesired solutes is kept low on this side of the membrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • solute
  • For another solute, bicarbonate, dialysis solution level is set at a slightly higher level than in normal blood, to encourage diffusion of bicarbonate into the blood, to act as a pH buffer to neutralize the metabolic acidosis that is often present in these patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • treatments
  • They may get dialysis treatments for the rest of their lives. (kidshealth.org)
  • Dialysis treatments can lead to insomnia or sleep apnea, a condition in which someone briefly stops breathing during sleep. (kidshealth.org)
  • If you're getting dialysis, you need to stay as healthy as possible to get the most out of your treatments and avoid the problems mentioned above. (kidshealth.org)
  • Except for special diets and the time needed for treatments, people getting dialysis usually live normal lives. (kidshealth.org)
  • membrane
  • In protein purification technique dialysis is used to exchange buffers, loose smaller proteins that can pass through the pores, dilutions of concentrated salts, while leaving the protein of interest inside the semipermeable membrane separated. (wikipedia.org)
  • potassium
  • The dialysis solution has levels of minerals like potassium and calcium that are similar to their natural concentration in healthy blood. (wikipedia.org)
  • units
  • Jones PO, Goldsmith HJ, Wright FK, Roberts C, Watson DC: Viral hepatitis: a staff hazard in dialysis units. (springer.com)
  • clinics
  • In 2016, the Office of Clinical Research now played a major role in facilitating multisite projects through identifying and confirming participation from the clinics and investigators that are best suited to a particular project, preparing budgets and IRB documents, orchestrating data transfers from the Medical Information System (MIS) and serving as a liaison between study Sponsors, individual investigators/research sites, and the dialysis staff.
