Central venous oxygen saturation: a potential new marker for circulatory stress in haemodialysis patients?
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Haemodialysis causes recurrent haemodynamic stress with subsequent ischaemic end-organ dysfunction. As dialysis prescriptions/schedules can be modified to lessen this circulatory stress, an easily applicable ...
The impact of hemodialysis on segmental and global longitudinal myocardial strain.
Strain analysis derived from the analysis of speckle tracked imaging echocardiography can be used to examine ventricular contractile functions. In this study, we examined the relationship of hemodialysis (HD)-induced ...
Circulating endotoxaemia and frequent haemodialysis schedules
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Endotoxaemia, a driver of systemic inflammation, appears to be driven by dialysis-induced circulatory stress in haemodialysis (HD) patients. More frequent HD regimens are associated with lower ultrafiltration ...
Defining uremic arterial functional abnormalities in patients recently started on haemodialysis: combined in vivo and ex vivo assessment.
Endothelial dysfunction is a key initiating event in vascular disease in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients and haemodialysis (HD) patients exhibit significant vascular abnormalities. To understand this further, we ...
Nephrologists' perspectives on dialysis treatment: results of an international survey.
BACKGROUND: In-centre haemodialysis (ICHD) is the most common dialysis method used by patients worldwide. However, quality of life and clinical outcomes in patients treated via ICHD have not improved for some time. 'High-dose' ...
