Intensive Hemodialysis and Health-Related Quality of Life.
Diminished health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is common in dialysis patients and associated with increased risks for morbidity and mortality. Patients may present limitations in both physical and mental HRQoL. Poor ...
Regional Variation in Acute Kidney Injury Requiring Dialysis in the English National Health Service from 2000 to 2015 - A National Epidemiological Study.
BACKGROUND: The absence of effective interventions in presence of increasing national incidence and case-fatality in acute kidney injury requiring dialysis (AKI-D) warrants a study of regional variation to explore any ...
Chronic Kidney Disease in Primary Care: Outcomes after Five Years in a Prospective Cohort Study.
BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is commonly managed in primary care, but most guidelines have a secondary care perspective emphasizing the risk of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) and need for renal replacement ...
A simple care bundle for use in acute kidney injury: a propensity score matched cohort study.
BACKGROUND: Consensus guidelines for acute kidney injury (AKI) have recommended prompt treatment including attention to fluid balance, drug dosing and avoidance of nephrotoxins. These simple measures can be incorporated ...
Intensive Hemodialysis and Potential Risks With Increasing Treatment.
Although intensive hemodialysis (HD) can address important clinical problems, increasing treatment also introduces risks. In this review, we assess risks pertaining to 6 domains: vascular access complications, infection, ...
International Criteria for Acute Kidney Injury: Advantages and Remaining Challenges.
Nicholas Selby and colleagues describe how the definition of acute kidney injury brings opportunities and challenges in identifying patients at higher risk of adverse outcomes.
Clinical Practice Recommendations for the Use of Buttonhole Cannulation
Buttonhole cannulation, or buttonhole needling, is one of several methods of vascular access for dialysis patients. While this is a well-established technique, practices continue to vary across the UK. Catherine Fielding, ...
Development of a trigger tool to detect harm during haemodialysis
Haemodialysis is a widely used renal replacement therapy that is associated with multiple risks for patients. Monitoring of harm associated with haemodialysis is often limited to reporting of critical incidents, which is ...
Intensive Hemodialysis and Treatment Complications and Tolerability
Hemodialysis (HD) treatment can be difficult to tolerate. Common complications are intradialytic hypotension (IDH) and long time to recovery after an HD session. IDH, as defined by nadir systolic blood pressure < 90mmHg ...
