Interdialytic lung

Objective: To investigate the risk factors of ultrasound lung comets and its impact on the survivals of patients undergoing hemodialysis. Methods: One hundred and forty-two patients on hemodialysis (Male 76, female 66) were divided into three groups according to the score of lung comets (mild: ≤14 comets; moderate: 15 to 30 comets; severe: >30 comets). Seventy-two healthy subjects examined by lung ultrasound serve as a control. Pulmonary artery systolic pressure and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) were assessed by Doppler ultrasonography...

Patients on chronic hemodialysis have a shortened survival compared to the general population. There are multiple sources of morbidity and mortality unique to the dialysis population that account for this. Reasons include the effects of blood membrane interactions, intradialytic hypotension, myocardial stunning, excessive interdialytic weight gain, high-flow arteriovenous fistulae, and impaired lipid break down by anticoagulation administered during HD. Another risk factor, not well appreciated, is the occurrence of microemboli of air (microbubbles) during HD...

Residual renal function (RRF) is of paramount importance for hemodialysis (HD) adequacy, morbidity, and mortality. Some studies have shown that overhydration is beneficial for preservation of RRF, but it can also increase the probability of adverse events such as hypertension and heart failure in HD patients. To determine the optimal amount of dehydration, we performed HD with limited water removal in HD patients. Eighteen HD patients included in this self-controlled study underwent HD with limited water removal...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate pulmonary function and respiratory muscle strength in chronic renal failure patients, correlating these variables with hemodialysis-related weight fluctuation; to study the correlation between the duration hemodialysis and potential respiratory alterations. METHODS: Seventeen patients (median age, 47 years; interquartile range, 41-52 years), submitted to three weekly hemodialysis sessions for a median of 27 months (interquartile range, 14-55) were evaluated...

Impaired lung function in hemodialysis patients may be caused by an underlying pulmonary disease; however, the impact of uremia and the effects of dialysis treatment are not well understood. Our investigation aimed to characterize the acute effects of bicarbonate hemodialysis using membranes differing in biocompatibility on various parameters of lung function in unselected uremic patients maintained on regular hemodialysis. Fourteen clinically stable hemodialysis patients without acute lung disease were included in the study...

OBJECTIVE: It has previously been demonstrated that a lining of surface-active phospholipid (SAPL) is reversibly bound (adsorbed) to normal peritoneal mesothelium. The lining acts as a boundary lubricant and release (anti-stick) agent preserving mechanical Integrity of the epithelial surface. In a review of clinical trials on the use of SAPL (akin to "surfactant") to restore ultrafiltration (UF) in patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD), speculation is that, by adsorption, the SAPL lining might also be Imparting the semipermeability vital for UF...
