Utilizing electronic health records to predict acute kidney injury risk and outcomes: workgroup statements from the 15 th ADQI Consensus Conference
We describe AKI prediction targets, feature selection, model development, and data display.
CONCLUSION: Enterococcus spp. with susceptibility to limited antibiotics was one of the main pathogens in Korean IAIs, along with E. coli and Klebsiella spp., which were highly susceptible to imipenem, amikacin, and piperacillin/tazobactam. Meanwhile, the low susceptibilities of E. coli or Klebsiella spp. to amoxicillin/clavulanate, advanced-generation cephalosporins, and ciprofloxacin should be considered when determining empirical antibiotic therapy in clinical practice.

I have this 20 year old male on dialysis secondary to uncontrolled diabetes who came in with intractable abdominal pain nausea and vomiting.Dont get me wrong hes not on any chronic opiod regimen so dont want to jump to conclusions but his pain is 20/10 getting fentanyl 25 q3 hrs. Ct abdomen completely normal. Egd normal. BP normal, Labs nml Tried reglan for concern for gastroparesis yet nothing. Tried to wean this guy off fentanyl and his mom throws a tantrum that he is in so much pain. No... How do you deal with those pain sesking patients?
CONCLUSION: Remote ischemic preconditioning did not modify irisin or troponin I expression, independent of the time of collection. PMID: 31799981 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: In this group of peritoneal dialysis patients, cystatin C did not correlate with the metabolic or inflammatory status, nor cardiovascular disease, after adjustment for residual renal function. PMID: 31799980 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: In this small pilot study, cholecalciferol treatment appeared to increase serum phosphorous concentrations compared to ergocalciferol. These observations may warrant further large-scale studies that are appropriately powered to validate such findings. PMID: 31804923 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Patients are at a high risk of EMS-ED after dialysis initiation. Frailty severity (at the time of dialysis initiation) is a strong predictor of first and recurrent EMS-ED and this may be important to guide informed decision making and resource planning for dialysis patients who require EMS.

End-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients experiencing kidney failure typically require hemodialysis in order to artificially remove fluid and waste from blood and maintain appropriate electrolyte concentrations. For many patients on hemodialysis, an a...

VachetAbstractIn dialysis patients, the protein β2-microglobulin (β2m) forms amyloid fibrils in a condition known as dialysis-related amyloidosis. To understand the early stages of the amyloid assembly process, we have used native electrospray ionization (ESI) together with ion mobility mass spectrometry (IM-MS) to study soluble preamyloid oligomers. ESI-IM-MS reveals the presence of multiple conformers for the dimer, tetramer, and hexamer tha...

BACKGROUND: People with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) treated with dialysis are frequently affected by major depression. Dialysis patients have prioritised depression as a critically important clinical outcome in nephrology trials. Psychological and soci...
