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 Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a pervasive and growing health concern that has a significant impact on mortality and morbidity, putting stress on global healthcare systems. CKD affects ∼14% of general populations and ∼36% of high-risk populations and is projected to rise in the coming decade due to increasing rates of diabetes and hypertension. Recent findings Screen, triage, and treat programs aim to detect early stage disease with the intention of promoting medical and lifestyle interventions in line with a patient's level of risk that may slow disease progression and reduce morbidity and ...

Purpose of review We will examine the current and future options in management of anemia in dialysis patients focusing on recent trials in iron supplementation and alternatives to erythropoietin-stimulating agents (ESAs). Recent findings We review the literature on Erythropoietin (EPO)-stimulating agents, focusing on the risk benefits of various options available. We review the recent practice changing trial in iron supplementation in dialysis patients with chronic kidney disease and movements in the research on alternatives to EPO-stimulating agents primarily hypoxia-inducible factor prolyl hydroxylase inhibitors (HI...

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...

Ex-vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) maintains marginal donor lungs at body temperature with ventilation and circulating perfusate, allowing for functional assessment prior to transplantation. Prolonged EVLP would allow for advanced time-dependent therapies for donor lung repair and reconditioning. We hypothesized that the addition of a dialysis machine to the EVLP circuit would maintain homeostasis of the donor lung and prolong EVLP duration.
