Hemodialysis with high-calcium dialysate impairs cardiac relaxation. (1/1016)

BACKGROUND: During hemodialysis (HD), serum ionized calcium is directly related to the dialysate calcium concentration. We have recently shown an acute induction of hypercalcemia to impair left ventricular (LV) relaxation. In the current study we sought to establish whether changes in serum Ca++ also affect LV function during HD. METHODS: We echocardiographically examined the LV relaxation and systolic function of 12 patients with end-stage renal disease before and after three HD treatments with dialysate Ca++ concentrations of 1.25 mmol/liter (dCa++1.25), 1.5 mmol/liter (dCa++1.50), and 1.75 mmol/liter (dCa++1.75), respectively. Age- and sex-matched healthy controls were also examined echocardiographically. RESULTS: The LV posterior wall thickness and the interventricular septum thickness, and the LV end-diastolic dimension and the end-systolic dimensions were significantly greater in the patients when compared with the controls, and the LV fractional shortening, the ratio of peak early to peak late diastolic velocities (E/Amax), and the isovolumic relaxation time (IVRT) showed impairment of LV relaxation and systolic function in the patients. Serum ionized calcium increased significantly during the dCa++1.5 HD (1.24 +/- 0.10 vs. 1.34 +/- 0.06 mmol/liter, P = 0. 004) and dCa++1.75 HD (1.19 +/- 0.10 vs. 1.47 +/- 0.06 mmol/liter, P = 0.002), and plasma intact parathyroid hormone decreased significantly during the dCa++1.75 HD (medians 8.2 vs. 2.7 pmol/liter, P = 0.002). LV systolic function was not altered during any of the treatments. The changes in E/Amax and IVRT suggested impairment of relaxation during all sessions, but only during the dCa++1.75 HD was the impairment statistically significant (E/Amax 1. 153 +/- 0.437 vs. 0.943 +/- 0.352, P < 0.05; IVRT 147 +/- 29 vs. 175 +/- 50 msecond, P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: HD with high-calcium (dCa++1. 75 mmol/liter) dialysate impairs LV relaxation when compared with lower calcium dialysate (dCa++1.25 and dCa++1.5 mmol/liter) treatments.  (+info)

The impact of an amino acid-based peritoneal dialysis fluid on plasma total homocysteine levels, lipid profile and body fat mass. (2/1016)

BACKGROUND: The caloric load from glucose-based peritoneal dialysis (PD) fluids contributes to hypertriglyceridaemia, adiposity and, as result of anorexia, protein malnutrition in PD patients. It has been suggested that replacement of a glucose-based by an amino acids-based PD fluid (AA-PDF) for one exchange per day might improve the nutritional status and lipid profile. Due to the uptake of methionine from the dialysate, however, exposure to AA-PDF might aggravate hyperhomocysteinaemia, a frequently occurring risk factor for atherosclerosis in uraemic patients. METHODS: We studied the impact of a once daily exchange with 1.1% AA-PDF instead of glucose-based PD fluid for 2 months on plasma methionine and total homocysteine (tHcy) levels, lipid profile, butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) and body fat mass of seven stable PD patients. Results are expressed as mean+/-SEM. RESULTS: Methionine levels did not increase significantly during therapy, but tHcy levels increased substantially from 60+/-12 to 84+/-19 micromol/l after 1 month (P=0.039), and to 85+/-22 micromol/l after 2 months of AA-PDF treatment. Serum triglyceride concentration decreased from 3.0+/-0.4 mmol/l at entry to 2.6+/-0.5 mmol/l (at 1 month, P=0.041 vs baseline). Serum BChE also decreased from 6.9+/-0.4 U/ml at entry to 6.3+/-0.4 U/ml after 2 months (P=0.014). Total cholesterol concentration and cholesterol fractions did not change. The reduced exposure to glucose-based PD fluid for 2 months resulted in a 0.5 kg reduction in fat mass which was due mainly to a reduction in fat mass of the trunk region (0.3 kg, P=0.031). CONCLUSIONS: It is concluded that methionine-containing AA-PDF induces an increase in the plasma tHcy level. This might, potentially, offset the beneficial effects of an improved serum lipid profile and reduced fat mass on the risk of cardiovascular disease in PD patients. Lowering the methionine content of the fluid, therefore, may be required to overcome this adverse effect.  (+info)

Does a high peritoneal transport rate reflect a state of chronic inflammation? (3/1016)

OBJECTIVE: It has recently been reported that a high peritoneal transport rate was associated with increased mortality in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients. One possible explanation is that a high peritoneal transport rate might be caused by a state of chronic inflammation, which also per se might result in increased mortality. Therefore, in this study we investigated whether high peritoneal transport rate patients are in a state of chronic inflammation. METHODS: The study included 39 clinically stable peritoneal dialysis patients (free of peritonitis) who had been on PD for more than 3 months (16.8+/-11.8 months). Seven patients were treated with continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD) and the others were on CAPD. A 4-hour standard peritoneal equilibration test (PET) using 2.27% glucose solution was performed in each patient. Dialysate samples at 4 hours and blood samples at 2 hours were measured for interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta), tumor necrosis factor(alpha)(TNFalpha), C-reactive protein (CRP), and hyaluronan as markers of inflammation. RESULTS: There was no significant correlation between dialysate/plasma (DIP) creatinine (0.82+/-0.15, range 0.51 - 1.15) and blood concentrations of IL-1beta (11.2 ng/L, range <5 - 65.9 ng/L),TNFalpha (12.1 ng/L, range <5 - 85.4 ng/L), CRP (<10 mg/L, range <10 - 76 mg/L), nor with the blood hyaluronan concentration (165 microg/L, range 55 - 955 microg/L). The dialysate concentrations of IL-1beta and TNFalpha were below the detectable level in most of the samples. Although dialysate hyaluronan concentration (334 microg/L, range 89 - 1100 microg/L) was correlated with D/P creatinine (r= 0.36, p< 0.05), there was no correlation between the total amount of hyaluronan in the effluent and D/P creatinine. However, a significant correlation was found between serum hyaluronan concentration and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) (r = -0.49, p< 0.005); GFR also tended to be correlated with serum TNFalpha (r = -0.31, p = 0.058) but not with serum IL-1beta and serum CRP. CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that a high peritoneal transport rate is not necessarily related to a state of chronic inflammation in CAPD patients. The high mortality rate observed in high transporters may relate to other issues, such as fluid balance or abnormal nutrition and metabolism, rather than to chronic inflammation.  (+info)

Frequency and causes of discrepancy between Kt/V and creatinine clearance. (4/1016)

This study examines the frequency of discrepancy between Kt/V urea and creatinine clearance (Ccr) measurements in patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD) and the reasons for this discrepancy. DESIGN: Nonrandomized, retrospective data analysis. SETTING: Single PD unit of a university teaching hospital. PATIENTS: All adult patients receiving PD at our center from January 1995 to December 1996. METHODS: Actual (a) and desired (d) body weight (BW) were used to calculate urea volume of distribution (V) and body surface area (BSA). Patients were divided into four groups based upon their total small solute clearances (Kt/V and Ccr, normalized by actual weight) and three additional groups based upon actual/desired (a/d) body weight ratio. An additional analysis was performed for the subset of anuric patients. Data collected for all patients included the following: total Kt, total Ccr, 4-hour dialysate/ plasma (D/P) creatinine, serum albumin concentration, duration of PD, actual body weight, age, and height. RESULTS: Twenty-three percent of the clearance measurements in our study were discrepant, defined as having values for either Kt/V or Ccr (but not both) above the accepted targets of Kt/V > or = 2.0/wk and Ccr > or = 60 L/wk/ 1.73 m2. Patients with both values above target are more likely to have higher residual renal function. Patients who are significantly less than BWd and patients on PD for a longer time are more likely to have adequate Kt/V but not Ccr. Furthermore, patients who are less than 90% or greater than 110% of BWd have markedly different values for Kt/V and Ccr when BWa versus BWd values are used. CONCLUSIONS: Kt/V and Ccr values are frequently discrepant; a number of factors affect these two measurements to varying degrees, including weight, degree of residual renal function, and duration of PD.  (+info)

Tranexamic acid increases peritoneal ultrafiltration volume in patients on CAPD. (5/1016)

OBJECTIVE: The preservation of ultrafiltration (UF) capacity is crucial to maintaining long-term continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD).The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the antiplasmin agent tranexamic acid (TNA) increases UF volume in CAPD patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifteen patients on CAPD, 5 with UF loss and 10 without UF loss, were recruited for the study. The effect of TNA was evaluated with respect to changes in UF volume, peritoneal permeability, peritoneal clearance, bradykinin (BK), and tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) concentration. SETTING: Dialysis unit of the Saiseikai Central Hospital. RESULTS: In patients with UF loss, 2 weeks of treatment with oral TNA produced a significant increase in UF volume in all subjects (5/5).TNA also produced a significant increase in peritoneal clearances of urea and creatinine (Cr). However, the peritoneal equilibration test (PET) revealed that TNA had no effect on dialysate/plasma (D/P) Cr, Kt/V, or the protein catabolic rate (PCR).TNA also had no effect on net glucose reabsorption. In contrast, significant decreases in BK and blood tPA concentrations in response to TNA treatment were noted. BK concentration in drainage fluid was also reduced. In the case of patients without UF loss,TNA produced an increase in UF volume in 70% (7/10). However, no differences were found in blood and drainage BK and tPA concentrations between theTNA treatment and nontreatment periods in these patients. A comparison of basal BK and tPA concentration showed that there were no differences in these parameters between patients with UF loss and those without loss of UF. Furthermore,TNA given intraperitoneally to a patient also produced a marked increase in UF volume. CONCLUSION: The present study suggests thatTNA enhances UF volume in patients both with and without UF loss. SinceTNA did not affect peritoneal permeability and glucose reabsorption, the mechanism by which TNA exerts an enhancing action on UF is largely unknown. We speculate that it may be associated with suppression of the BK and/or tPA system, at least in patients with UF loss.  (+info)

Analysis of the peritoneal equilibration test in Mexico and factors influencing the peritoneal transport rate. (6/1016)

OBJECTIVE: To validate the peritoneal equilibration test (PET), establish reference values in the Mexican population, compare our results with those reported by Twardowski et al., and analyze the influence of some factors on the peritoneal transport rate (PTR). DESIGN: Retrospective, cross-sectional study. PATIENTS: Eighty-six PETs were performed in 45 female and 41 male patients; 35 of the patients were diabetics. Creatinine D/P and glucose D/D0 ratios were calculated and compared with those from Twardowski et al. In a multivariate analysis, age, gender, diabetes mellitus (DM), time on dialysis, and peritonitis rate were considered as independent factors influencing the PTR. RESULTS: Creatinine D/P and glucose D/D0 ratios at 4 hours were not significantly different from those reported by Twardowski et al. Creatinine D/P at 4 hours was not different between DM and non-DM patients when the rate of peritonitis and time on dialysis were not taken into account. Multivariate analysis did not result in any significant model predicting the creatinine D/P at 4 hours. CONCLUSIONS: PET validation is reported for the first time in a Latin American population. The PET results of this study are similar to those in the literature. We found that DM, peritonitis rate, time on dialysis, age, and gender did not clearly influence the PTR.  (+info)

Comparison of peritoneal fluid culture results from adults and children undergoing CAPD. (7/1016)

BACKGROUND: Peritonitis is a common complication in patients with end-stage renal disease treated by continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Empirical treatment is based on the organisms that are most frequently isolated and their susceptibilities. OBJECTIVE: To analyze and then compare peritoneal fluid culture results from adult and pediatric patients on CAPD, with respect to micro-organisms and antimicrobial susceptibilities. DESIGN: Three-year retrospective review of peritoneal fluid cultures from adults and children on CAPD. RESULTS: We isolated 481 organisms from 378 peritoneal fluid specimens, collected from 135 patients (45 children, 90 adults). There were 191 episodes of peritonitis in children (mean 4.2+/-3.5, range 1 - 15) compared to 187 in adults (2.1+/-1.9, range 1 - 10) (p< 0.001). Two or more episodes occurred in 30 of 45 children (67%) compared to 33 of 90 adults (37%) (p < 0.001).The number of different organisms/patient as well as the total number of isolates/patient were significantly greater in children (respectively, 2.8+/-2.3, range 1 - 12; and 5.3+/-5.2, range 1 - 27) than in adults (2.0+/-1.3, range 1 - 6; and 2.7+/-2.4, range 1 - 10) (p< 0.005). After Staphylococcus epidermidis, S. aureus was the most frequently isolated organism, occurring in 18% of episodes in adults and 12% of episodes in children (p< 0.01). Twenty-two of 33 fungal isolates (67%) in children were Candida parapsilosis compared to 3 of 24 (12%) in adults (p < 0.001). Subanalysis of multiple episodes revealed that Pseudomonas and Candida occurred significantly more often in children (p< 0.01), whereas S. aureus occurred more often in adults (p< 0.001). In polymicrobial episodes S. epidermidis occurred more often in adults (p < 0.05). Significant differences in susceptibilities to ampicillin, ceftriaxone, chloramphenicol, and gentamicin were found between children and adults (p< 0.05 - 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: CAPD-associated peritonitis occurs significantly more often in children than adults. Significant differences in microbial etiology and susceptibilities were found between pediatric and adult patients. Each dialysis unit should periodically analyze peritoneal fluid culture results from its CAPD patients. These data can then be used for optimization of empirical antimicrobial therapy of peritonitis.  (+info)

The standard peritoneal permeability analysis in the rabbit: a longitudinal model for peritoneal dialysis. (8/1016)

OBJECTIVE: The development of an experimental peritoneal dialysis (PD) model in rabbits to investigate peritoneal transport characteristics during a longitudinal follow-up and to assess normal values of these peritoneal transport parameters. DESIGN: Peritoneal transport parameters were determined in conscious, unrestrained rabbits by standard peritoneal permeability analysis adjusted for rabbits (SPAR). In this test a 1-hour dwell with 3.86% glucose dialysate is used. Dextran 70 (1g/L) was added to the dialysate to allow calculation of fluid kinetics. Dialysate samples were taken before, 10, and 40 minutes after instillation and at the end of the dwell. Blood was drawn at the end of the dwell. EXPERIMENTAL ANIMALS: Eighteen female New Zealand White rabbits (2565 g) were included for catheter implantation. SPARs were performed in 15 animals; the other 3 were excluded due to complications. MAIN OUTCOME: The mass transfer area coefficients (MTACs) of the low molecular weight solutes urea (MTAC(urea)) and creatinine (MTACcr) were calculated. The clearances of albumin (CIalb) and IgG (CI(IgG)), glucose absorption, and fluid transport were computed. Coefficients of intraindividual variation (Vc) were calculated for these parameters. RESULTS: The main complications were catheter obstruction and/or dislocation. Five rabbits underwent uncomplicated PD during a 4-week period. Fifteen SPARs in 15 stable rabbits were performed and analyzed to obtain normal values. Means and standard deviations of the transport parameters were as follows: MTAC(urea) 2.24+/-0.57 mL/min, MTACcr 1.61+/-0.30 mU/min, CI(alb) 52.9+/-17.2 microL/min, CI(IgG) 44.5+/-22.9 UL/min. The transcapillary ultrafiltration rate was 0.66+/-0.13 mL/min and the lymphatic absorption rate 0.47+/-0.26 mL/min. The parameters of solute transport were upscaled to those in humans using two different methods. MTACs of low molecular weight solutes in rabbits and patients were of the same order of magnitude, but the clearance of albumin was approximately four times higher in rabbits than in patients, and that of IgG eight times. In all rabbits sieving of sodium was observed. The dialysate/plasma (D/P) of sodium decreased to a minimum at 40 min (p<0.003 vs the initial value), followed by a rise to 60 min. The minimal value was 0.884+/-0.002. The coefficients of variation calculated on 7 rabbits that underwent two or more SPARs were similar to those assessed from the patient data. This indicates stability of the model and reproducibility of the SPAR. CONCLUSION: The conscious rabbit model for PD can be used for repeated studies on peritoneal transport.  (+info)

In spite of its benefits, many peritoneal dialysis patients ultimately have to switch dialysis therapy to hemodialysis secondary to technique failure. Numerous etiologies for peritoneal dialysis treatment failure exist and include the continuous exposure of the peritoneal membrane to bioincompatible dialysis solutions with acidic pH and high content of glucose degradation products. These factors have been implicated in mesothelial cell loss, fibrosis and neovascularization, resulting in alterations in solute transport and ultrafiltration failure. Novel peritoneal dialysis solutions with neutral pH and low concentrations of glucose degradation products have recently been developed to improve biocompatibility and ameliorate the consequences of membrane damage with conventional peritoneal dialysis solutions. While novel peritoneal dialysis solutions have been available outside the United States for several years, Delflex Neutral pH has only recently been approved for use in the United States. Thus, ...

The invention provides an apparatus and method for storing and transporting peritoneal dialysate in dry or lyophilized form, and for forming a deliverable peritoneal dialysis solution therefrom. In one embodiment, a dry reagent bed, including reagents sufficient to produce a dialysis solution, is suspended in a diluent flow path through the apparatus housing. Continuous pressure on the reagent bed causes the bed to compact as it erodes when purified water is passed through the housing. The pressure ensures complete and even dissolution of the reagents. Through dry storage and simple dissolution, even in a home, the invention enables a wider variety of solution constituents, including reduced acid content and the use of bicarbonate as a stable buffer component. The latter is illustrated in a double-bed embodiment, where bicarbonate is stored separately from calcium or magnesium salts within a single housing.

The present findings suggest that the use of low sodium PD solutions are safe and may lead to improvements in blood pressure control and maintenance of euvolemia. Study in CAPD patients alone and those with significant residual kidney function represents a limitation worth noting. In the majority of developed countries, APD represents the predominant therapy3, and furthermore, sodium removal may be more challenged in APD relative to CAPD owing largely to the impact of sodium sieving and potentially greater thirst. Therefore, the results would have been that much more relevant (and perhaps magnified) if an APD population was included. Given that anuric patients struggle the most with adequate sodium removal, inclusion of a cohort of anuric PD patients would have similarly shed important findings and removed the confounding noise residual kidney function played in this study. Further concerning is the dropout of approximately 20% of the cohort for various reasons from randomization to study ...
A method for manufacturing and using a dialysis collection bag, and the dialysis collection bag itself. A collection bag is fabricated with a sterilization tablet therein, having a soluble coating over a sterilization agent. When the collection bag is filled with used dialysis solution at the completion of the dialysis therapy, the soluble coating dissolves over a known period of time such as about 30 minutes. The delayed dissolution allows time to take a specimen sample of the unadulterated used dialysis solution. When the dissolution of the coating is completed, the tablet releases the sterilization agent to sterilize the used dialysis solution, so that pathogens are destroyed to prevent the transmission of disease in the event the collection bag is disposed of improperly.

The answer is C. Anaphylaxis, dyspnea, urticarial, and diarrhea can all be seen with a type A anaphylaxis reaction. Hemolysis can be secondary to either physical damage to erythrocytes due to a narrowing or blockage of the blood passages, including the dialysis tubing, catheter or needle or to issues with the dialysis solution. Hemolysis can be due to hypotonic dialysis solutions, solutions contaminated by chemicals in the water supply that have not been removed during the preparation of dialysate. ...

Peritoneal dialysis solutions which contained 43 mEq per litre of acetate had a greater antibacterial effect than those containing lactate. Bacteria were isolated from 15 separate clinical infections, each caused by Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas sp., or Staphylo-coccus aureus. Incubation in the dialysate made with acetate substantially reduced the number of viable organisms from all but one of the 45 isolates. It is suggested that solutions made with acetate may provide greater protection from peritonitis.. ...

In this paper we present details of the following:. 1. ab initio calculations of a set of electron impact cross sections for atomic Zn; and 2. transport coefficients and distribution functions for an electron swarm in Zn vapour, obtained from a multiterm solution of Boltzmanns equation using these cross sections, over a range of reduced fields, E/N, and gas temperatures of practical interest.. Our work has been motivated, in part, by recent suggestions that zinc could be an attractive replacement for mercury in making high-pressure gas discharge lamps more environment-friendly (Born M 2001 J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 34 909; Born M 2002 Plasma Sources Sci. Technol. 11 A55). Current models of such lamps require a knowledge of the plasma electrical conductivity, which can be calculated from the (e, Zn) cross sections and mobility coefficients presented in this paper.. ...
The triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 (TREM-1) is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, and its expression is upregulated on phagocytic cells in the presence of bacteria or fungi (1). Several experiments by Bouchon and colleagues showed that TREM-1 mediates the acute inflammatory response to microbial products. Human tissues infected with bacteria are infiltrated with neutrophils and macrophages that express high levels of TREM-1. Conversely, TREM-1 is only weakly expressed in samples from patients with noninfectious inflammatory disorders. In addition, TREM-1 is shed from the membrane of activated phagocytes and can be found in a soluble form in body fluids. The presence of a soluble form of TREM-1 in samples of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid from mechanically ventilated patients has been shown to be a good indicator of infectious pneumonia. During sepsis, a progressive decline of plasma sTREM-1 concentration indicates a favorable clinical evolution during the recovery phase ...
As the the blood vessels is actually grab in the entire body, it is transmitted by way of amazing body hoses, to their appliance, and thru that dialyzer. The dialyzer is how the particular filtering procedure takes place. The blood vessels lies together with dialysate, an actual body cleansing fluid that contains purified normal water, bicarbonate, and then an acidified solution by having electrolytes and also nutrients for optimum blood vessels well being. Your dialysate enters some of the dialyzer, a new round safe-keeping package attached to the dialysis appliance. From the particular dialyzer, body along with dialysate mix together.

The Amia Automated PD System is intended for automatic control of dialysate solution exchanges in the treatment of adult renal failure patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis.
Glucose (sugar) in the healthy gut is used to transport nutrients, electrolytes and fluids into the body. In a damaged gut, such as in patients undergoing cancer treatment, the villi become blunted, leaving them unable to absorb glucose- bound nutrients and electrolytes. Additionally, glucose has been shown to stimulate chloride secretion (fluid loss/diarrhea) and weaken barrier function (cause for bacteria and toxins to enter the body) causing leaky gut.. Research showed that enterades® decreases chloride secretion (decrease diarrhea and dehydration), improves barrier function (reduces leaky gut) and helps to rebuild the GI absorptive structures.. When compared to glucose-based s enterade® showed that is superior in providing nutrient and electrolyte absorption as well as it has greater rehydration.. ...
This dialysis treatment method uses the patients peritoneum (the tissue that covers the inner surface of the abdominal cavity and the abdominal organs) as the dialysing membrane for blood purification. A sterile dialysis solution is introduced and removed through a catheter that has been surgically implanted into the abdominal cavity of the patient. The solution absorbs toxins and excess water. Most treatments are supported by a machine, the cycler, and are administered by the patients in their home or workplace several times a day or during the night.. ...

Side Effects of Peritoneal Dialysis: 1, infection: A person undergoing dialysis is at risk of getting an infection from bacteria on the outside of the body. Great care must be taken during the process of filling, dwelling and draining dialysis solution to lower this risk. Also, where there is frequent handling of the catheter, risk of infection is higher. The most common type of infection is peritonitis, where the peritoneum (where the catheter is placed in the abdomen) gets infected. Another common problem is the development of skin infections around the catheter insertion site. 2, hernias: In peritoneal dialysis, the insertion of the catheter weakens the muscles of the abdominal wall. Pressure produced by the dialysis solution pushing against the already weakened muscles can lead to a tear, and in this way result in a hernia. 3, nutrition: Some peritoneal dialysis patients find it difficult to eat, as the dialysis solution in their stomach area makes them feel full. Lesser food intake often ...
The treatment and control groups were comparable in table 1, although Hb levels trended higher in the control group with standard solutions. Of 118 randomized 93 are reported (21% loss) and the reasons for loss described. No side effects were noted.. Statistical procedures were described with Students t for the main outcome measures and Kaplan-Meier PD survival curves for secondary endpoints including peritonitis and PD technique survival. The main results were presented with means and the SEM rather than confidence intervals. No differences were found between the two solutions for residual renal function, technique survival, peritonitis rates or on additional end points including CRP and D/Pcreat and 4 hour UF rates during a PET. The non-inferiority tests were significant for non-inferiority. This study demonstrates the difficulty of demonstrating superiority in a small RCT where loss to follow up, wide confidence intervals, small numbers, and end points that lack true validation (and also ...
The present invention provides devices and methods for stabilizing bicarbonate-based solutions for peritoneal dialysis or hemofiltration. The bicarbonate-based solutions of the present invention are formulated and stored in at least two parts-an alkaline bicarbonate concentrate and an acidic concentrate. The alkaline bicarbonate concentrate is adjusted to have a pH of about 8.6 to 10.0. The acidic concentrate is adjusted to have a stable, acidic pH ranging from about 1.0 to 3.0. Upon mixing, although some variation in the pH of the mixed bicarbonate solution exists, the inventors have discovered that with the appropriate selection of the parameters of the concentrates, the pH of the mixed solution is always within an acceptable physiological range.
Forty-five patients were included in the study. Treatments were well tolerated. The filter life was appropriate (57.4 ± 17 hours). In a few patients mild metabolic alkalosis (pH , 7.45 plus BE , +3) was easily counteracted by increasing the dialysis fluid flow. Acid-base values returned to normal within 24 hours after increasing the dialysate flow. The maximum dialysate flow was 3000 ml/hour. Hypernatremia and hypocalcemia were not observed. The systemic ionized calcium concentration was successfully controlled by adjustments of a continuous calcium infusion made with respect to the results of 6 hourly measurements. ...
The aim of this work was to describe a new method for optical monitoring of solutes in a spent dialysate. The method utilizes UV light absorption employing a commercially available spectrophotometer. Measurements were performed both on collected dialysate samples and on-line. The concentration of several removed solutes and electrolytes in the serum and in the dialysate was determined simultaneously using standard laboratory techniques. During on-line monitoring the spectrophotometer was connected to the fluid outlet of the dialysis machine. On-line measurements during a single hemodialysis session demonstrated a possibility to monitor deviations in the dialysator performance (e.g. dialysator in bypass). The experimental results indicated a good correlation between UV absorption and several removed solutes (urea, creatinine) in the spent dialysate. The correlation coefficient for urea and creatinine concentrations in the dialysate was very high for every individual treatment. The UV absorbance ...
Peritoneal dialysis is a sterile solution which contains minerals and glucose. This solution is run through a tube into the peritoneal cavity, the abdominal body cavity around the intestine, where the peritoneal membrane acts as a semipermeable membrane.The peritoneal membrane or peritoneum is a layer of tissue containing blood vessels that lines and surrounds the peritoneal, or abdominal, cavity and the internal abdominal organs (stomach, spleen, liver, and intestines). The dialysate is left there for a period of time to absorb waste products, and then it is drained out through the tube and discarded. This cycle or exchange is normally repeated 4-5 times during the day, (sometimes more often overnight with an automated system). Ultrafiltration occurs via osmosis; the dialysis solution used contains a high concentration of glucose, and the resulting osmotic pressure causes fluid to move from the blood into the dialysate. As a result, more fluid is drained than was instilled. Peritoneal ...

To the editor: Dr. Donald Vidt recently reported on a peritoneal dialysis workshop (Ann Intern Med 78:144-146, 1973). In that report he recommends a peritoneal dialysate calcium concentration of 3.5 mg/100 ml. Such a level would rapidly deplete patients of calcium and no doubt accelerate their bone disorder. I believe he meant to suggest a calcium concentration of 3.5 meq/ litre, which is 7.0 mg/100 ml. ...

This study investigated the transport coefficients involved in mass and heat transfer during the drying of a porous solid partially saturated with multicomponent mixtures. It included the coefficients governing liquid transport through the solid, the matrix of multicomponent diffusion coefficients in the liquid phase, and the effective thermal conductivity. As it is not possible to determine these coefficients by theoretical considerations alone and considerable experimental work is required to determine them in a broad range of process conditions, the principle of this study has been the use of mathematical models complemented with some empirical parameters. These empirical parameters were determined by comparison between measurements in specially designed experiments and the results of mathematical models that describe the process. In addition, the application of the multicomponent diffusion coefficients is described in two cases where liquid diffusion is important: convective evaporation of a ...

We present an original method for the preparation of stable dialysate containing 35 mEq/l of bicarbonate. The dialysate was utilized with 4 patients for periods ranging from 4 months to 1 year according to a short-term recirculated dialysis schedule in closed circuit (20-40L) (2-2 1/2 hrs) on alternate days. Preliminary results are reported here with respect to the tollerance of the dialytic run and correction of the acid-base balance equilibrium. The clinical tollerance is excellent despite high dehydration rates even in patients particularly sensitive to ultrafiltration. The acidosis correction would seem to be much better with bicarbonate than with traditional dialysis. The difference is even higher if we consider the brevity of the dialysis. During the bicarbonate dialysis we do not observe any fall of the PCO2 or significant difference in PO2 in the patients blood. The correction of acidosis probably causes the normalization of pre-dialytic potassiemia in spite the net removal of K ...
PURPOSE: To minimize the consumptions of condensed dialysis solution, make-up water and energy and to reduce a cost of dialytic treatment without lowering the dialytic quality, by installing a control unit to feed the signals directed from the blood flow volume into the input side of the unit, from whose output side the signals as functions of blood flow volume are sent out into the system to adjust the flow of dialytic solution. CONSTITUTION: An automatically-operated type control circuit is included in the control unit 100. A signal led from a blood flow rate is sent into the input port of this control unit. The signal is, therefore, led from a feeding flow volume set for a blood pump 30, that is, led from a revolution velocity (RPM) of the blood pump 30, for instance. The flow volume of dialytic solution is automatically adjusted, based on the output signals of the control unit. For this purpose, the output of control circuit 100 is connected either to the dialytic solution pump 20 or

Ive been looking forward to having things slow down, but things have instead gone haywire. My husband started having problems during his nightly dialysis treatments last Thursday night. On Friday night, we spent from 2:00 - 3:00 am trying to figure out what to do and ended up calling the nurse, who told him to stop his treatment, not do anything over the weekend, and come in on Monday morning. It has now been determined that the catheter has migrated up under his rib cage, thus causing pain when he tried to drain the dialysis solution from his abdomen. For now, he is enduring what is called manual exchanges (done without a machine) twice a day. It takes 45 painful minutes to drain the solution after it has done its thing over several hours, but with the threat of hemodialysis hanging over our heads, we are willing to endure almost anything. We have an appointment with the surgeon on Monday and will go from there, but surgery is inevitable. We both hope this will be considered urgent so that ...
What a busy day. My head feels so much lighter with my new haircut. After that I had an early lunch with my mother, then it was on to the hospital to go over my eating plan. Rose did a great job of putting together an easy to follow diet that allows for substitutions. We also discussed calories burnt during various exercises. I came away feeling positive. I can DO this. One downer is I get less calories than a healthy person. My dialysis solution adds about 300 calories a day to my intake. That sucks but after my operation there will be no more dialysis fluid so Ill get a little break. Still, I will always have to be concerned with the effects of the prednisone on my body. God is so good to me to give me this chance. I think more and more about living rather than dying now. People say they can see the light coming back into my eyes. Well yeah ...

A monitor to provide substantially real-time estimates of fluid absorption rate and tissue loss rate in a patient during a surgical procedure. The monitor estimates fluid source flow rates and waste fluid flow rates based on weight changes per unit time or direct reading fluid flow rate meters. Tissue loss flow rates are estimated based on tissue concentration measurable in waste irrigation fluid using an optical comparator, and are used to correct waste fluid flow rates. Correct waste fluid flow rates are used in turn to obtain estimated fluid absorption rates.
