  • blood
  • dosage means for adjusting a concentration of the substance (A) in the blood of the patient to a desired concentration A! (google.com)
  • vascular access
  • Dialysis Vascular Access Service - a cooperative clinical service for responsive vascular access treatment. (uofmhealth.org)
  • But the dialytrauma concept is wider and also encompasses the problems associated with vascular access (mechanical and infectious), dialysis-associated hypotension, hematological complications (blood losses derived from circuit clotting, bleeding associated with the anticoagulation needed to run a RRT, thrombocytopenia, etc.), non-desired heat loss, and increased costs among others. (wikipedia.org)
  • critically ill patients
  • This study compares the effect of a soybean oil-based versus an olive oil-based lipid emulsion in healthy volunteers and in critically ill patients. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Survival by dialysis modality in critically ill patients with acute kidney injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • The idea was born as a consequence of the publication of the first major trial (known as the ATN Study) looking at the intensity of renal support in critically ill patients with acute kidney injury (AKI). (wikipedia.org)
  • The authors' conclusion was that critically ill patients with AKI requiring RRT should be treated with this "less-intensive" dose, given that it will achieve the same results as the "intensive" one. (wikipedia.org)
  • The loss of these molecules without appropriate replacement could engender useless, or even harmful a therapy (such as RRT) intended to improve the outcomes of critically ill patients with AKI. (wikipedia.org)
  • As such, critically ill patients needing RRT, depending on the clinical severity (AKI alone, or AKI associated with other organs dysfunction), could require a higher depurative dose of renal support. (wikipedia.org)
  • However the two main trials that have studied the intensity of renal support in critically ill patients with AKI, , allocated them to a higher or lower dose without taking into account the clinical status of each patient. (wikipedia.org)
  • calcium and phosphorus
  • Contraindications include: Vitamin D intoxication Hypercalcaemia Hypersensitivity to paricalcitol or any of its excipients whereas cautions include: Impaired liver function It is also advised that physicians regularly monitor their patients' calcium and phosphorus levels. (wikipedia.org)
  • Urgent parathyroidectomy may benefit those patients who have uncontrollable plasma calcium and phosphorus concentrations despite dialysis. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • Each Unit should have a Clinical Champion and a Patient champion appointed to ensure this is done. (kidney.org.uk)
  • The Comprehensive Kidney Program at the University of Michigan Health System practices and teaches optimal care for patients with kidney diseases at all stages, and is committed to clinical research aimed at both better treatment and prevention of kidney-related health issues. (uofmhealth.org)
  • Our patients also have access to clinical research opportunities and cutting-edge treatments. (uofmhealth.org)
  • Since frailty has been found to be associated with higher mortality, independent of clinical characteristics and comorbidity, interventions to improve frailty have the potential to contribute to better quality of life and lower mortality among dialysis patients. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The main result of this study (including 1,124 patients) was that a fixed "intensive" dose (35 mL/Kg/h) delivered with different RRT modalities, produced the same clinical outcomes than a "less-intensive" dose (20 mL/Kg/h). (wikipedia.org)
  • In this way, finally, he seemed to support the Theory of Dynamic Approach, that is: we need to tailor the RRT dose to the clinical scenario of the individual patient. (wikipedia.org)
  • A leader in research for treatment of lipid disorders, The Rogosin Institute pioneered clinical research of LDL-apheresis in the early 1980s, which led to the adoption of LDL-apheresis as a procedure to treat patients with the genetic form of extremely high cholesterol. (wikipedia.org)
  • therapies
  • Dialytrauma refers to the set of possible and non-desired complications associated with the use of renal-replacement therapies (RRT). (wikipedia.org)
  • solutes
  • As in dialysis, in hemofiltration one achieves movement of solutes across a semi-permeable membrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • Thus convection overcomes the reduced removal rate of larger solutes (due to their slow speed of diffusion) seen in hemodialysis. (wikipedia.org)
  • duration
  • The mean age of the study patients was 47.5 ± 13.8 years and the mean duration of dialysis was 77.2 ± 75.5 months. (sjkdt.org)
  • Multiple linear regression analysis demonstrated that age, dialysis duration, and male sex were negative predictors of QoL score. (sjkdt.org)
  • Older age, male gender, unemployment, and duration of dialysis adversely affected the QoL scores. (sjkdt.org)
  • Death occurred in 18.3% of cases, including 92.3% on hemodialysis with a median hemodialysis duration of six (1-60) months. (sjkdt.org)
  • fluid
  • After access has been established, your child will be connected to a large hemodialysis machine that drains your child's blood, bathes it in a special dialysate solution that removes waste substances and fluid, then returns it to your child's bloodstream. (nationwidechildrens.org)
  • Four sessions per week are often prescribed for larger patients, as well as patients who have trouble with fluid overload. (wikipedia.org)
  • Replacement fluid is added and the blood is returned to the patient. (wikipedia.org)
  • With both IHF or IHDF, the substitution fluid is prepared on-line from dialysis solution by running dialysis solution through a set of two membranes to purify it before infusing it directly into the blood line. (wikipedia.org)
  • Yemen Republic
  • This study was done to determine the prevalence of Hepatitis B virus (HBV) & Hepatitis C virus (HCV), in patients on hemodialysis in Zabeed City, Yemen Republic, and address the major risk factors for transmission of these viruses among HD patients. (scirp.org)
  • phosphate
  • One possible pathway proposes the C8 carbon framework of methythiolincosamide originates from the condensation of a pentose (C5) unit, stemming from either the hexose monophosphate or condensation through a transketolase reaction with glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate and sedoheptulose-7-phosphate, and a C3 unit, added through a transaldolase reaction with sedoheptulose-7-phosphate. (wikipedia.org)
  • care
  • let's just say there was a BIG difference between those of us with critcal care experience and those that were stickly renal. (allnurses.com)
  • What I will call the "new medical-industrial complex" is a large and growing network of private corporations engaged in the business of supplying health-care services to patients for a profit - services heretofore provided by nonprofit institutions or individual practitioners. (massmed.org)
