Standard profiling analysis aims to evaluate medical providers, such as hospitals, nursing homes, or dialysis facilities, with respect to a patient outcome. The outcome, for instance, may be mortality, medical complications, or 30-day (unplanned) hospital readmission. Profiling analysis involves regression modeling of a patient outcome, adjusting for patient health status at baseline, and comparing each provider's outcome rate (e.g., 30-day readmission rate) to a normative standard (e.g., national "average")...

OBJECTIVE: Hypotension during hemodialysis (HD) is the most common complication that negatively affects the quality of life of patients. The objective of the current study was to evaluate the preliminary efficacy and safety of herbal acupoint therapy (HAT) for intradialytic hypotension (IDH). METHODS: A randomized, placebo-controlled trial was performed in 32 HD patients to determine whether HAT was more effective than a sham treatment for the treatment of IDH. The outcomes were frequency of IDH episodes and number of nursing interventions during HD sessions, pre- and post-dialysis BP, subjective change in fatigue as measured by the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), and recovery time from fatigue after dialysis at the 0th and 4th week...

Patients with chronic kidney disease have a high disease burand may benefit from primary care services and care coord A medical home model with direct access to primary care services is one approach that may address this need, yet has not been examined. As a substudy of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) patient-centered medical home for kidney disease (PCMH-KD) health system intervention study, we examined the uptake of free primary care physician (PCP) services. The PCORI PCMH-KD study was an initial step toward integrating PCPs, a nurse coordinator, a pharmacist, and community health workers (CHWs) within the health care delivery team...

BACKGROUND: Inadequate volume control may be a main contributor to poor survival and high mortality in hemodialysis patients. Bioimpedance measurement has the potential to improve fluid management, but several dialysis centers lack an agreed fluid management policy, and the method has not yet been implemented. Our aim was to identify renal care professionals' perceived barriers and facilitators for use of bioimpedance in clinical practice. METHODS: Qualitative data were collected through four focus group interviews with 24 renal care professionals: dieticians, nephrologists and nurses, recruited voluntarily from a nation-wide selection of hemodialysis centers, having access to a bioimpedance-device...

BACKGROUND: Hemodialysis requires needle insertions every treatment. Needle injury (mechanical or hemodynamic) may cause complications (aneurysms/stenosis) that compromise dialysis delivery requiring interventions. Metal needles have a sharp slanted "V"-shaped cutting tip; plastic cannulae have a dull round tip and four side holes. Preliminary observations demonstrated a difference in intradialytic blood flow images and mean Doppler velocities at cannulation sites between the two devices...

BACKGROUND: Dialysis-requiring acute kidney injury (D-AKI) is a serious complication in hospitalized heart failure (HF) patients. However, data on national trends are lacking after 2002. METHODS: We used the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (2002-2013) to identify HF hospitalizations with and without D-AKI. We analyzed trends in incidence, in-hospital mortality, length of stay (LoS) and cost. We calculated adjusted odds ratios (aOR) for predictors of D-AKI and for outcomes including in-hospital mortality and adverse discharge (discharge to skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes, etc)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: In hemodialysis patients, sedentarism is a potentially modifiable mortality risk factor. We explored whether healthcare staff's attitude towards exercise interacts with patient-perceived barriers in modifying the level of physical activity in this population. METHODS: In this prospective, cross-sectional, multicenter study we recruited 608 adult patients and 330 members of the healthcare staff in 16 hemodialysis units in Italy. We assessed patient-perceived barriers to, and healthcare staff's attitude towards, exercise by specific questionnaires...

Background: Individuals on hemodialysis bear substantial symptom burdens, but providers often underappreciate patient symptoms. In general, standardized, patient-reported symptom data are not captured during routine dialysis care. We undertook this study to better understand patient experiences with symptoms and symptom reporting. In exploratory interviews, we sought to describe hemodialysis nurse and patient care technician perspectives on symptoms and symptom reporting. Methods: We conducted semi-structured interviews with 42 US hemodialysis patients and 13 hemodialysis clinic personnel...

To date, single-needle (SN) hemodialysis (HD) requires a dialysis machine equipped with two blood pumps-one controlling arterial blood flow (Qb) and one controlling venous Qb. B. Braun has developed an innovative single-pump SN HD system. Therefore, usability is improved by reducing complexity. The aim of this study was to compare dialysis parameters of the new single-pump SN HD system with a double-pump SN HD system available on the market (Fresenius Medical Care [FMC] 5008). In this two-armed crossover study, patients were randomized into two groups (B...

Patients receiving hemodialysis are vulnerable to infectious diseases due to their impaired immunity and high risk of exposure to pathogens. To protect patients, staff, and visitors from potential infections, each hemodialysis unit should establish and follow standard infection control and prevention measures. Therefore, clinical practice guidelines were developed by a working group of nephrologists and infection control specialists to provide evidence-based guidance for dialysis physicians and nurses, with the aim of preventing infection transmission and controlling infection sources in hemodialysis facilities...

Rosa K Hand, Jeffrey M Albert, Ashwini R Sehgal
OBJECTIVE: Patient to staff ratios vary based on facility characteristics, and therefore have been proposed as an explanatory factor for the variation in dialysis facility outcomes. This analysis tested that hypothesis. DESIGN AND METHODS: Observational study using Dialysis Facility Report data. Reported staff numbers from the Annual Facility Survey were converted to full time equivalents (FTE). Subsequently, ratios were created for patients per FTE registered dietitian (RD), social worker, nurse, and patient care technician...
