dry weight dialysis

Panagiotis I Georgianos, Rajiv Agarwal
The diagnosis and management of hypertension among patients on chronic dialysis is challenging. Routine peridialytic blood pressure recordings are unable to accurately diagnose hypertension and stratify cardiovascular risk. By contrast, blood pressure recordings taken outside the dialysis setting exhibit clear prognostic associations with survival and might facilitate the diagnosis and long-term management of hypertension. Once accurately diagnosed, management of hypertension in individuals on chronic dialysis should initially involve non-pharmacological strategies to control volume overload...

Mediastinal masses incidentally discovered on chest imaging often suggest underlying malignancy such as lymphoma or metastatic cancer. However, the radiographic appearance of mediastinal edema can mimic a mediastinal mass in the context of acute fluid overload. We describe the case of a 75 year old woman known for end-stage renal disease on hemodialysis who presented with acute pulmonary edema in the context of a Non ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction. Chest CT imaging showed pulmonary edema, pleural effusions, and a middle mediastinum soft-tissue mass of 4...

Systemic arterial hypertension (SAH) is a progressive cardiovascular syndrome caused by complex and interrelated causes. The early markers of this syndrome are often present even before the blood pressure (BP) elevation; therefore, SAH cannot only be classified by the BP elevation threshold, which sometimes is discreet. Its progression is strongly associated with structural and functional cardiovascular abnormalities, which lead to end-organ damage (heart, kidney, brain, blood vessels and other organs), and cause premature morbidity and death...

BACKGROUND: Effusion is common in dialysis patients. The most common causes include fluid overload due to renal failure and nonrenal causes like congestive heart failure and infection. We here report a case of left side transudative effusion due to brachiocephalic venous stenosis. METHODS: A 34-year-old female who had chronic kidney disease V during transplant work-up was found to be having left arm swelling and left transudative effusion. Work-up for transudative effusion did not show any cardiac cause or liver problem...

PURPOSE: Interdialytic weight gain (IDWG) is both a measure of dietary compliance and a well-established predictor of future adverse outcomes in dialysis patients. The impact of environmental conditions on IDWG in end-stage renal disease is little studied to date. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed IDWG for 100 consenting chronic end-stage renal disease patients undergoing thrice weekly in-center hemodiafiltration under three different climatic conditions in a Central European city: Weekend_1 was humid (93 %) and warm (24 °C); Weekend_2 was dry (38 %) and hot (33 °C); and Weekend_3 was dry (30 %) and warm (24 °C)...

Introduction Blood volume changes and vascular refilling during hemodialysis (HD) and ultrafiltration (UF) have been assumed to depend on volume overload (Vo ). It was the aim to study the magnitude of vascular refilling in stable HD patients with moderate volume expansion in everyday dialysis using novel technical approaches. Methods Patients were studied during routine dialysis and UF based on clinical dry weight assessment. Pre-dialysis Vo was independently measured by bioimpedance spectroscopy. Vascular refilling volume (Vref ) was calculated as: Vref  = Vuf  - ΔV, where ΔV is the absolute blood volume change determined by on-line dialysate dilution using a commercial on-line hemodiafiltration machine incorporating a relative blood volume monitor, and where Vuf is the prescribed UF volume...

Background/Aims: We investigated which dialysis unit blood pressure (BP) is the most useful for predicting home BP in patients undergoing hemodialysis (HD). Methods: Patients undergoing HD who had been treated > 3 months were included in this study. Exclusion criteria were hospitalized patients with acute illness and changes in dry weight and anti-hypertensive drugs 2 weeks before the study. We used the dialysis unit BP recording data, such as pre-HD, intra-HD, post-HD, mean pre-HD, and post-HD (pre-post-HD), mean pre-HD, intra-HD, and postHD (pre-intra-post-HD) BP...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of pregnancy in women with end-stage renal disease seems to be increasing. Improvements in dialysis, obstetrical care, and antenatal fetal monitoring over the past two decades appear to have increased fertility rates and successful pregnancies in dialysis-dependent women. A pregnancy with a successful outcome despite the long dialysis period, as in the patient described here, is very rarely reported in the literature. CASE PRESENTATION: I report a case of a 34-year-old white Kurdish woman who had had two uncomplicated pregnancies while on hemodialysis, with delivery of healthy babies...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: In dialysis patients, the associations between apoprotein profile and all-cause or cardiovascular disease (CVD)-related mortality are not well known. We, therefore, investigated whether apoprotein levels are associated with these events. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS: We undertook a prospective observational cohort study of prevalent hemodialysis patients aged ≥18 years (n=1081), who were followed for 4 years (2011-2014)...

BACKGROUND: Intradialytic hypertension is a condition where there is an increase in blood pressure (BP) from pre- to post-hemodialysis; this condition has been recently identified as an independent mortality risk factor in hypertensive hemodialysis patients. The mechanisms and management of intradialytic hypertension have been explored in numerous research studies over the past few years. SUMMARY: Patients with intradialytic hypertension have been found to be more chronically volume overloaded compared to other hemodialysis patients, although no causal role has been established...

BACKGROUND: Among hemodialysis patients, probing dry weight is an effective strategy for improving control of hypertension. Whether controlling hypertension improves or worsens symptoms among such patients remains unclear. The purpose of the study was to develop a tool to evaluate symptoms and examine the relationship of the change in these symptoms with blood pressure (BP) control. METHODS: Among patients participating in the Hemodialysis Patients Treated with Atenolol or Lisinopril (HDPAL) randomized controlled trial, a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was performed to establish the relationship between symptoms and organ systems...

Intradialytic hypotension (IDH) is a life-threatening condition. We evaluated the feasibility of blood volume monitoring (BVM) and blood temperature monitoring (BTM) in preventing IDH in patients prone to the same. Fourteen hemodynamically unstable end-stage renal disease patients who were prone to IDH and unable to achieve dry weight were given BVM treatment twice weekly for two weeks. Forty patients who were not on BVM treatment served as controls. Patients were anemic, had low serum albumin (3.4 ± 0.43 g/dL) and fluid overload and were edematous...

Symptomatic intradialytic hypotension (IDH) continues to be an important complication of hemodialysis treatment. There is some evidence that besides an IDH episode, repeated episodes could represent an even more important independent risk factor for mortality in hemodialysis patients. A retrospective cross-sectional study was performed to study 18 dialysis treatments in 43 patients during 6 weeks. Relationships of IDH episodes with baseline variables were examined using a Poisson regression model (generalized linear model)...

INTRODUCTION: It is well established that nutritional status is an important factor affecting the outcome and recovery from disease or injury. Assessment of nutritional status is an integral part of care for patients with chronic kidney disease, especially for those treated with dialysis procedures. According to available literature, 18%-80% of patients on dialysis have some form of nutritional deficiency. Furthermore, in patients treated with dialysis procedures there is a rule called 'reverse epidemiology', according which patients with better nutritional status have better survival rate...

Fluid overload in patients undergoing hemodialysis contributes to cardiovascular morbidity and is a major cause of hospitalizations. It is often addressed by reinforcing the importance of a low-salt diet with patients and challenging estimated dry weights. More recently, interest has shifted toward the dialysate sodium prescription as a strategy to improve fluid overload and its adverse sequelae. The availability of high-flux high-efficiency dialysis in conjunction with the need to ensure its tolerability for patients has resulted in an increase in dialysate sodium prescriptions from 120 to ≥140 mEq/L...
