Authors: Niyyar VD Abstract Sonography is increasingly being used by nephrologists and the field of dialysis access is no exception. Advances in technology have allowed the addition of this universally available, portable, non-invasive tool to the nephrologist's armamentarium, which provides information on both morphology and physiology without the need for contrast or radiation. Ultrasound may be used across the spectrum of dialysis access, including central venous catheter placements, vascular mapping, regional anesthesia, creation, maintenance and assessment of hemodialysis access as well as assessment of the ab...

CONCLUSIONS: Anatomical variations in depth and diameter as well as the collapsibility due to intrathoracic pressures changes represent common challenges that face clinicians during central venous catheterization of the axillary vein. A noteworthy increase in vessel size as patients transition from spontaneous to mechanical ventilation may theoretically improve first-pass cannulation success with practitioners skilled in both ultrasound and procedure. As a result, placing a centrally inserted central catheter after the induction of anesthesia may be beneficial. PMID: 31204560 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPurpose of ReviewNeonatal sepsis is a diagnosis made in infants less than 28 days of life and consists of a clinical syndrome that may include systemic signs of infection, circulatory shock, and multisystem organ failure.Recent FindingsCommonly involved bacteria includeStaphylococcus aureus andEscherichia coli. Risk factors include central venous catheter use and prolonged hospitalization. Neonates are at significant risk of delayed recognition of sepsis until more ominous clinical findings and vital sign abnormalities develop. Blood culture remains the gold standard for diagnosis.SummaryNeonatal sepsis remains an ...

In conclusion, our findings suggest that the increased VTE risk after MI may to a large extent be explained by concomitant conditions related to MI, particularly infections and immobilization. PMID: 31203579 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to compare Wb during freestyle swimming relative to cycling and to characterize the differences in the cardiorespiratory responses to swimming relative to cycling in the same individuals. Methods Eight collegiate swimmers (four men and four women, age = 22 ± 2 yr) performed an incremental swim test while tethered to a resistance apparatus. On a separate day, subjects performed an incremental cycle test. During swimming and cycling, metabolic and ventilatory parameters were measured using a customized metabolic cart, and inspired Wb was quantified using an esophageal balloon catheter. Results S...

We describe a case of a 65-year-old woman undergoing hemodialysis treatment since 1986 after a bilateral nephrectomy due to complicated nephrolithiasis. Her last access, two Tesio® tunneled cuffed catheters implanted via the right internal jugular vein functioned correctly for 14 years without complications, and so, was not replaced in the meantime. She was referred to our hospital due to a rupture in a catheter lumen, which was corrected conservatively by creating a more proximal tunnel and excising the affected area. A few weeks later, a new rupture in the same lumen was identified, so the catheter was replace...
