Emergency-dialysis Patients Who Transition Home Early Tend to Have Programmatic Support Emergency-dialysis Patients Who Transition Home Early Tend to Have Programmatic Support

Few patients who begin emergency dialysis make an early transition to home care, but those who do tend to start the procedure in a center that has programs to support the move, new research suggests.Reuters Health Information

Fernández, María Carmen Blanco-López, María Matos, Gemma GutiérrezAbstractEncapsulation into nanocarriers, such as niosomes, is a promising way to protect them from degradation, and allow controll and target delivery of bioactive compounds. For biotechnological applications, a tight control of particle size with acceptable encapsulation efficiencies (EE) is a technological challenge, especially for hydrophilic compounds due ...

ConclusionIncidence of complications is higher when a graft is used over a native AVF. However, close surveillance and prompt intervention can lead to multiple successful salvage procedures thus prolonging the lifespan of the graft. As in our case we were able to prolong the lifespan of the AVG with multiple successful interventions.

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.

Chen, Anna Jin, Connie M. Rhee, Kamyar Kalantar-Zadeh, Elani StrejaRationale &ObjectivePatients receiving twice-weekly or less-frequent hemodialysis (HD) may need to undergo higher ultrafiltration rates (UFRs) to maintain acceptable fluid balance. We hypothesized that higher UFRs are associated with faster decline in residual kidney function (RKF) and a higher rate of mortality.Study DesignRetrospective cohort study.Setting &Pa...

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.
