Publication date: Available online 19 June 2019Source: Science &SportsAuthor(s): H. Rafik, T. Aatif, A. Bahadi, M. Azizi, D. El KabbajRésuméObjectifsLa sédentarité est un facteur de risque de mortalité chez les patients en hémodialyse chronique, mais le niveau d’activité physique est peu étudié dans cette population. Plusieurs études ont évalué l’activité physique par des méthodes subjectives basées sur des questionnaires. Notre travail avait pour objectif de mesurer le niveau d’activité physique par le recueil du nombre de pas quotidiens à l’aide d’un podomètre et de déterminer les facteurs impliqués dans la réduction de l’activité physique.Matériels et méthodesC’est une étude transversale en simple aveugle ayant inclue quarante-trois hémodialysés chroniques. L’activité physique a été évaluée à l’aide d’un podomètre (podomètre multifonction modèle ONWALK 900, GEONAUTE) en enregistrant quotidiennement le nombre de pas pendant sept jours consécutifs.RésultatsQuarante-trois patients étaient colligés d’âge médian de 56 ans [40–68], avec une prédominance masculine sexe ratio H/F : 1,26. L’activi...

We present the recommendations of the Brazilian Society of Nephrology regarding the treatment of pediatric patients with kidney diseases during the COVID-19 pandemic. METHODS: Articles and documents from medical societies and government agencies on specific recommendations for children on RRT in relation to COVID-19 as well as those focused on epidemiological aspects of this condition in Brazil Were evaluated and analyzed. RESULTS: We present recommendations on outpatient care, transportation to dialysis centers, peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis, and kidney transplantation in children and adolescents during the CO...

By RICHARD HOEHN, MD Experts claim we could have been better prepared when the COVID-19 pandemic struck in early 2020. With an annual budget of $400-700 million, the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) is designed to respond to chemical, biological, and other disasters. Its $8 billion inventory included 13,000 ventilators and a limited supply of personal protective equipment, N95 masks, and medical supplies. This left state and local governments scrambling as the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated and the capacity of many hospitals was overwhelmed. Faced with immediate and visible death and suffering, leaders took drastic...

Authors: Ventura CG, Roque FL, Sousa IQ, Lobo RD, Luders C Abstract INTRODUCTION: Chronic hemodialysis (HD) patients are considered to be at high risk for infection. Here, we describe the clinical outcomes of chronic HD patients with influenza A (H1N1) infection and the strategies adopted to control an outbreak of influenza A in a dialysis unit. METHODS: Among a total of 62 chronic HD patients, H1N1 infection was identified in 12 (19.4%). Of the 32 staff members, four (12.5%) were found to be infected with the H1N1 virus. Outcomes included symptoms at presentation, comorbidities, occurrence of hypoxemia, hospit...

Authors: Rangaswamy D, Guddattu V, Webster AC, Borlace M, Boudville N, Clayton P, Badve S, Johnson DW, Sud K Abstract BACKGROUND: Icodextrin is a high molecular weight, starch-derived glucose polymer that is used as an osmotic agent in peritoneal dialysis (PD) to promote ultrafiltration. There has been wide variation in its use across Australia and the rest of the world, but it is unclear whether these differences are due to patient- or centre-related factors. METHODS: Using the Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry, all adult patients (>18 years) who started PD in Australia between 1 Ja...

Abstract Background: To investigate the association between insulin resistance (IR) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risks among hemodialysis patients. Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study between 2013 and 2017, on 384 hemodialysis patients from seven hospital-based-dialysis centers. HOMA-IR is classified according to median value. The CVD risks were defined by the K/DOQI Guidelines. Logistic regression analysis was used. Results: Patients' age was 60.9 ± 11.8, 58.1% men, and 40.3% overweight/obese. The median of HOMA-IR was 5.4, 82.8% high systolic blood pressure, and 85.7% hyperhomocyst...

Distal revascularization and interval ligation (DRIL) is an effective approach to management of hemodialysis access-related ischemia that offers both symptom relief and access salvage. Great saphenous vein (GSV) is the most commonly used conduit. However, the GSV harvest site can be particularly high risk for postoperative wound complications, especially in patients with risk factors such as obesity and diabetes. In addition, if ipsilateral arm vein is available and used as the conduit, a general anesthetic can be avoided.

CONCLUSION: Two-thirds of cinacalcet initiated patients experienced hypocalcaemia with 9% being severe. Hypocalcemia was mostly asymptomatic, transient (with and without targeted intervention to correct it) and not associated with an increase in cardiovascular events or deaths.
