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...

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...

In this study, we determined the relationships between serum sclerostin and all-cause mortality, the prevalence of cardiovascular events (CVEs), and coronary artery calcifications (CACs) in dialysis patients.Methods: A total of 165 dialysis patients (84 hemodialysis [HD] and 81 peritoneal dialysis [PD]) were enrolled in this study. We performed multivariable linear regression analysis to test the relationships between serum sclerostin levels and demographics and clinical parameters. We also performed Cox proportional hazard regression analysis to determine independent predictors of overall survival and CVEs.Results: The me...

For malnourished patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) on hemodialysis (HD), refeeding is complex; true weight (dry weight) gain must be accounted for as it accrues in order to safely dialyze. This case describes the challenge of following true weight to appropriately adjust treatment for a patient with ESRD on HD requiring inpatient refeeding.

Authors: Pasyar N, Rambod M, Jowkar M Abstract Introduction: Providing social support for patients under hemodialysis treatment can reduce their psychological, social, and physical problems. The present study aimed at determining the effect of peer support on hopefulness in patients under hemodialysis. Methods: This clinical trial with a pre/posttest design was conducted on 128 patients who had referred to the hemodialysis centers of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences in 2019. The patients were randomly divided into an intervention and a control group. The patients in the intervention group were supported by...

This study was conducted to determine the frequency of S. aureus nasal carriage in hemodialysis patients (HD) and health-care workers (HCW) at the main dialysis center of Bam city, located in southeast of Iran. In this cross-sectional study, a total of 52 nasal swabs were obtained from health-care workers and hemodialysis patients to detect methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA) isolates. The resistance to different antibacterial agents was determined by disk diffusion method. Also, Panton-Valentine Leukocidin (PVL) - encoding gene as well as Staphylococcal protein A (spa) type were determined. The nasal carriage rate of S...

Abstract BACKGROUND: The accuracy and speed by which acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is excluded are an important determinant of emergency department (ED) length of stay and resource utilization. While high-sensitivity troponin I (hsTnI)>99th percentile (upper reference level [URL]) represents a "rule-in" cutpoint, our purpose was to evaluate the ability of the Beckman Coulter hsTnI assay, using various level-of-quantification (LoQ) cutpoints, to rule out AMI within 3 hours of ED presentation in suspected acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients. METHODS: This multicenter evaluation enrolled...

We present the case of a 69-year-old hemodialysis patient who was admitted due to fever after dialysis. He had undergone online hemodiafiltration using acetate-free citrate-containing dialysate. After admission, we switched to acetate-containing bicarbonate dialysate. He was diagnosed with pneumonia and treated with ceftriaxone. However, fever that occurred post dialysis persisted, displaying a gradual elevation in CRP level and eosinophils (up to 9.7  mg/dL and 3774 cells/μL, respectively). After a series of negative workups for infection and dialysis membrane allergy, we suspected that acetate-containing bicarbon...
