Abstract BACKGROUND: Dialysis patients who miss treatments are twice as likely to visit emergency departments (EDs) compared to adherent patients; however, prospective studies assessing ED use after missed treatments are limited. This interdisciplinary pilot study aimed to identify social determinants of health (SDOH) associated with missing hemodialysis (HD) and presenting to the ED, and describe resource utilization associated with such visits. METHODS: We conducted a prospective observational study with a convenience sample of patients presenting to the ED after missing HD (cases); patients at local dialys...

The Luer connector, with its simple twisting male and female design features, is a standard in the health care industry.1 This simple and novel design with both a functional connection and a dependable seal is used almost exclusively in a variety of equipment familiar to most emergency departments, including, but not limited to, intravenous (IV) tubing and syringes as well as automated blood pressure inflation tubing. In addition to these common sources, emergency nurses must also at times care for patients with tubes or catheters serving various purposes, including those for hemodialysis, enteral feedings, airway (tracheo...

Conclusions: Concurrent benzodiazepine use is common and associated with higher risk of hospitalization due to opioid overdose. Possible opioid-associated hospital admission rate is 4-5 times bigger in ESRD population than general population. Current safety classification of opioids in these patients is misleading, and even drugs considered safe based on pharmacokinetic data are associated with moderate to very high risk of hospitalization. We propose a risk-stratified classification of opioids and suggest starting to use them in all ESRD patients. PMID: 31772694 [PubMed - in process]
