CONCLUSIONS: The study shows an important correlation between oral health, oral hygiene habits, dental assistance and clinical intercurrences with hospitalization in dialysis patients. The results are weighty to establish protocols that can, directly improve, critical health outcomes of end-stage kidney disease patients under dialysis treatment.

CONCLUSION: A significant rise in cerebral oxygenation was observed following the manual compression of arteriovenous fistula. Therefore, the arteriovenous fistula could have a role in impaired cerebral oxygenation in hemodialysis patients. PMID: 32489138 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Findings of our experimental model suggest that concentration of aspired drug is effected by the distance between the central venous catheter and central venous dialysis catheter, being lowest when the drug is infused distally to central venous dialysis catheter. Furthermore, the concentration of the tracer is directly proportional to the infusion speed and far less effected by the aspiration rate of the drug.

CONCLUSION: depressive symptoms are associated with burden of comorbidities, greater number of disease complications, hemodialytic intercurrences and functional dependence. Physical exercise practice can be an effective care strategy. PMID: 32490957 [PubMed - in process]
(ERA-EDTA) Analysis of a Spanish experience shows that COVID-19 is frequent in hemodialysis patients, who appear to be at risk for worse outcome. A dramatic finding from the own experience, register and published papers from Spain is that the risk of dialysis patients dying of COVID-19 is very high at 1:4. These patients require special protection, and routine unconditional tests should be carried out on patients and staff in dialysis units.
