Improving Clinical Prediction Rules In Acute Kidney Injury With The Use of Biomarkers of Cell Cycle Arrest: A Pilot Study.
INTRODUCTION: Early recognition of patients developing acute kidney injury is of considerable interest, we report the first use of a combination of a clinical prediction rule with a biomarker in emergent adult medical ...
Techniques to improve intradialytic haemodynamic stability.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Intra-dialytic hypotension (IDH) remains a significant problem for patients undergoing chronic haemodialysis. IDH causes symptoms that degrade patients' experience, compromises dialysis delivery and is ...
The Association of Nutritional Factors and Skin Autofluorescence in Persons Receiving Hemodialysis.
OBJECTIVE: Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are uremic toxins that result from hyperglycemia, oxidative stress, and systemic inflammation. AGEs are also formed in food during cooking. On the other hand, malnutrition ...
Peritoneal dialysis has optimal intradialytic hemodynamics and preserves residual renal function: Why isn't it better than hemodialysis?
Rates of cardiovascular mortality are disproportionately high in patients with end stage kidney disease receiving dialysis. However, it is now generally accepted that patient survival is broadly equivalent between the two ...
Risk Prediction for Acute Kidney Injury in Acute Medical Admissions in the UK.
Background: Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is associated with adverse outcomes; therefore identifying patients who are at risk of developing AKI in hospital may lead to targeted prevention. Aim: We undertook a UK-wide study in ...
