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...

CONCLUSION: A lower SUA level in HD patients was associated with a higher risk of all-cause mortality and CV mortality. Moreover, higher SUA concentrations may be cardioprotective in HD patients. PMID: 32223483 [PubMed - in process]

Purpose of review Physical inactivity is common in hemodialysis patients, and is associated with disability and poor outcomes. We summarize the effects of aerobic, resistance or mixed exercise training on aerobic capacity, muscle mass and strength, dialysis efficiency, quality of life and cardiovascular adaptation according to clinical studies on this population, also focusing on knowledge gaps as topics for future research. Finally, we put evidence into clinical context deriving practical indications for exercise implementation in these patients. Recent findings In hemodialysis patients, aerobic or mixed exercise tra...

Conclusions: Patients undergoing hemodialysis were somewhat satisfied with the counseling provided by the pharmacist. Moreover, there is a need for educational programs for patients undergoing hemodialysis that would increase awareness among hospital pharmacists to improve patients’ medication knowledge.

Venous needle dislodgement (VND) during dialysis is a rarely occurring adverse event, which becomes life-threatening if not handled promptly. Because the standard venous pressure alarm, implemented in most dialysis machines, has low sensitivity, a novel approach using extracted cardiac information to detect needle dislodgement is proposed. Four features are extracted from the arterial and venous pressure signals of the dialysis machine, characterizing the mean venous pressure, the venous cardiac pulse pressure, the time delay, and the correlation between the two pressure signals. The features serve as input to a support ve...

AbstractIntroductionThere is limited evidence about the association between calcium and phosphate levels and mortality stratified by intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) level.MethodsWe investigated whether differences in iPTH level affect the relationship between calcium and phosphate levels and all-cause mortality in hemodialysis patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT). Calcium and phosphate levels were categorized as low (

AbstractTwo dialysis patients developed recurrent restless legs syndrome. The clinical courses and the association between the α1-microglobulin removal rate and the therapeutic effects of hemodiafiltration were analyzed. Case 1: a middle-aged woman was switched from predilution online hemodiafiltration to hemodialysis, following which the α1-microglobulin removal rate decreased from 39.1 to 29.9%. A month later, the severe restless legs syndrome occurred. The treatment was then switched to high-efficiency hemodiafiltration and 2  weeks later, these symptoms were resolved. The α1-microglobulin removal...
