QUESTION: Does inspiratory muscle training improve respiratory muscle strength, functional capacity, lung function and quality of life of patients with chronic kidney disease? Does inspiratory muscle training improve these outcomes more than breathing exercises? DESIGN: Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised trials. PARTICIPANTS: People with chronic kidney disease undergoing dialysis treatment. OUTCOME MEASURES: The primary outcomes were: maximal inspiratory pressure, maximal expiratory pressure, and distance covered on the 6-minute walk test...

PURPOSE: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are among the most frequently used drugs, and this widespread use is complicated by safety issues. METHOD: A Literature review was conducted. RESULTS: NSAIDs are a leading cause of drug-related morbidity, especially in the elderly and patients with comorbidities. Most adverse effects are related to generalized inhibition of the major targets of NSAIDs: cyclooxygenases I and II. These enzymes are not only involved in pain and inflammation pathogenesis but are also required in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract for mucosal protection and gut motility, and in the kidneys for functional integrity...

This cross-sectional case-control study evaluated upper limb muscle strength and shoulder mobility in hemodialysis (HD) patients with arteriovenous fistula or graft. Twenty-five adult patients on thrice-a-week HD treatment for 6 months at least, were selected for the study. In all the patients and control subjects, handgrip tests and tests of range of motion in the upper extremities were evaluated by physiotherapy tests. Patients on HD showed lower muscle strength than age and sex matched subjects without severe chronic kidney disease (right: 30...

UNLABELLED: During the last decades, aerobic exercise programs have shown beneficial effects on quality of life of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients, but there is still little evidence on the benefits of resistance training programmes. The aim of this study was to analyze the effects of a short strengthening exercise program for ESRD during hemodialysis on exercise and functional capacity and on quality of life. METHODS: 16 hemodialysis patients were assigned, according to their own election, to exercise (N>or=8) or control group (N>or=8)...
