World Kidney Day and International Women's Day 2018 are commemorated on the same day (March 8), an opportunity to highlight the importance of women's health, and particularly, their kidney health. On its 13th anniversary, World Kidney Day promotes affordable and equitable access to health education, health care, and prevention for all women and girls in the world. In this article, we focus on what we do and do not know about women, kidney health, and kidney disease, and what we might learn in the future to improve outcomes worldwide...

AIntradialytic hypotension (IDH) occurring during hemodialysis (HD) may cause severe complications and can be life-threatening. IDH is a common symptom in patients with end stage renal disease undergoing HD. Currently, no effective predictive models for IDH exist. This study analyzed data on variations in oxygen saturation (SaO2 ) and heart rate (HR) in 68 patients during their HD sessions by using sequence alignment and Boolean algebra. Three classifiers derived from SaO2 and HR variation data were developed as predictors for predetermining IDH occurrence within 30 minutes...

Individuals with kidney failure on outpatient hemodialysis therapy may experience many biopsycho social complications and existential concerns. Consequently, there is a need to implement a process of advance care planning to effectively meet the extensive needs of these individuals. However, this article suggests there are various barriers in some outpatient hemodialysis facilities that may hinder the introduction of advance care planning. This article provides a critical discussion of some of these elements, including increased time pressure, nurse-patient communication, and the nurse-patient relationship...

Malnutrition is common in patients on hemodialysis (prevalence of 30% to 50%) and is associated with higher mortality. Lean body mass (LBM) assessment is an accurate way of assessing nutritional status. The dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan is a reliable method in assessing body compositions and LBM; however, it is expensive and largely inaccessible. Anthropometric skinfold thickness measurement (ASFM) is useful in assessing LBM. It is cheaper and accessible, but underutilized clinically. The subjective global score (SGA) is a well-established method of assessing nutritional status...

Successful hemodialysis treatments for patients with renal failure depend on patient adherence to prescribed treatment regimens. Lack of adherence may contribute to patient discomfort between hemodialysis treatments. This article reports a descriptive, correlational feasibility study that utilized Kolcaba's Comfort Theory as a framework. The purpose of the study was to determine a potential relationship between comfort and fluid retention (a proxy for adherence) in adults with end stage renal disease receiving hemodialysis...

REVIEW
Savannah Zins, Cynthia Gross, Mary Catherine Hooke
Pain is a major problem for individuals undergoing hemodialysis and can lead to decreased quality of life when ineffectively managed. Pain is often reported as burdensome; thus, nurses must learn effective, nonpharmacological adjuncts to help care for symptomatic patients. The purpose of this review was to identify non-pharmacologic complementary therapies and evaluate their effectiveness in minimizing pain among individuals undergoing hemodialysis. Multiple complementary interventions were identified, and several reduced pain, but evidence is qualified by limitations in study methods...

Pi-Chih Yang, Yu-Ying Lu
The purposes of this study were to identify the level of fatigue and to examine the predictors of fatigue in female patients on hemodialysis. The subjects for this study were 130 female patients at one hemodialysis unit in northern Taiwan. On univariate analyses, patients with higher levels of fatigue were more likely to be older, and have less education, lower serum albumin levels, sleep disturbances, and perceived higher level of hemodialysis stressors. The findings of this study can help nephrology nurses recognize fatigue as an important nursing issue for female patients on hemodialysis...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major health problem worldwide, but not enough is known about effective self-management interventions. In this qualitative study, we explore how outpatients with CKD Stages 1-5 (without renal replacement therapy) and their family members experienced an individually tailored CKD counseling service led by an advanced practice nurse (APN). Using thematic analysis, 10 pair interviews (N = 20) were conducted and analyzed stepwise. Findings revealed iterative processes along the course of the disease...

Sarah Llewellyn
Uncertainty is often presented in the literature as a barrier to chronic kidney disease (CKD) management and end stage renal disease (ESRD) planning by individuals, but the definition of uncertainty has not been clarified for individuals with CKD. After reviewing the literature, a conceptual definition for uncertainty in individuals with CKD was developed. To further clarify this concept, exemplars of individuals with CKD who do and do not exhibit uncertainty are offered. This concept clarification may offer nephrology nurses additional insight into assessing and caring for individuals with CKD...

Tamara M Kear
Optional function of body systems depends upon fluid and electrolyte balance; however, across the lifespan, disorders of fluid and electrolytes offset this, and the causative factors are varied. Nurses play a major role in the management of fluid and electrolyte balance. This article focuses on the role total body water content, plasma proteins, kidney function, and drug metabolism have on the age-related physiology impacting fluid and electrolyte balance, and on nursing implications.

A patient-centered quality improvement program implemented in one Virginia hemodialysis facility sought to determine if peer-to-peer (P2P) programs can assist patients on in-center hemodialysis with self-management and improve outcomes. Using a single-arm, repeatedmeasurement, quasi-experimental design, 46 patients participated in a four-month P2P intervention. Outcomes include knowledge, self-management behaviors, and psychosocial health indicators: self-efficacy, perceived social support, hemodialysis social support, and healthrelated quality of life (HRQoL)...
