  • THURSDAY, Feb. 28 (HealthDay News) -- Ultrasound can detect fluid in the lungs of dialysis patients, possibly preventing what could turn into fatal heart problems, Italian researchers report. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Many patients undergoing dialysis for kidney failure also suffer from heart failure and are at danger of having too much fluid in their lungs, which can lead to a heart attack, other heart problems and even death, the researchers said. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Early identification of lung congestion may help prevent progression of heart failure, serious cardiovascular problems and death in dialysis patients, he said. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Over two years of follow-up, dialysis patients with severe congestion had a 4.2-fold increased risk of dying and a 3.2-fold increased risk of having a heart attack or other heart problems, compared to patients with mild or no lung congestion. (bio-medicine.org)
  • He said the results "suggest that use of lung ultrasound to assess early signs of fluid retention in and around lung tissue in patients with kidney failure on dialysis might help predict those patients at higher general risk of heart failure or heart attack symptoms -- namely shortness of breath and body fluid overload. (bio-medicine.org)
