• membrane
  • 2. A connector system as in claim 1, in which said means for alternatively retaining a transfer spike in piercing and non-piercing positions relative to the supply of dialysis solution and pierceable membrane is present. (google.fr)
  • outcomes
  • Intriguing investigations from groups in London, Ontario and Toronto, Ontario have suggested that dialysis treatments lasting two to three times as long as, and delivered more frequently than, conventional thrice weekly treatments may be associated with improved clinical outcomes.

  • fluids
  • In such a situation, it is by the process of "Dialysis" that waste products and excess fluids are removed from the blood. (medwonders.com)
  • Along with catheters, P. oryzihabitans are most commonly found at sites involved with respiratory equipment and devices for continuous ambulatory dialysis, and these bacteria can spread through contaminated fluids and unsterilized or defiled medical tools. (wikipedia.org)
  • abdominal
  • In either case, pain typically starts as a generalized abdominal pain (with involvement of poorly localizing innervation of the visceral peritoneal layer), and may become localized later (with the involvement of the somatically innervated parietal peritoneal layer). (wikipedia.org)
  • form

  • life
  • In 1962, Life magazine published an article on the Seattle dialysis screening committee, which it dubbed the "Life or Death Committee. (wikipedia.org)
  • More control over the dialysis treatment schedule and greater life satisfaction. (wikipedia.org)
  • RESULTS
  • When compared with other schedules, nocturnal dialysis results in higher clearance of large and medium-sized molecules (that are diffusion-limited). (wikipedia.org)
