BACKGROUND: Elderly patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) have a high risk of death before reaching end-stage kidney disease. In order to allocate resources, such as advanced care nephrology where it is most needed, it is essential to know which patients have the highest absolute risk of advancing to renal replacement therapy (RRT). METHODS: We included all nephrology-referred CKD stage 3b-5 patients in Sweden 2005-2011 included in the Swedish renal registry (SRR-CKD) who had at least two serum creatinine measurements one year apart (+/- 6 months)...

Importance: The exclusion of undocumented immigrants from Medicare coverage for hemodialysis based on a diagnosis of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) requires physicians in some states to manage chronic illness in this population using emergent-only hemodialysis. Emergent-only dialysis is expensive and burdensome for patients. Objective: To understand the illness experience of undocumented immigrants with ESRD who lack access to scheduled hemodialysis. Design, Setting, and Participants: A qualitative, semistructured, interview study was conducted in a Colorado safety-net hospital from July 1 to December 31, 2015, with 20 undocumented immigrants (hereinafter referred to as undocumented patients) with ESRD and no access to scheduled hemodialysis...

INTRODUCTION: Recent randomised controlled trials suggest that on-line hemodiafiltration (OL-HDF) improves survival, provided that it reaches high convective volumes. However, there is scant information on the feasibility and the consequences of modifying convection volumes in clinics. METHODS: Twelve stable dialysis patients were treated with high-flux 1.8 m2 polysulphone dialyzers and 4 levels of convection flows (QUF) based on GKD-UF monitoring of the system, for 1 week each...

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a significant cause of health care-associated infections. Vancomycin remains an acceptable treatment option. There has been a welcome increase in the number of agents available for the treatment of MRSA infection. These drugs have certain differentiating attributes and may offer some advantages over vancomycin, but they also have significant limitations. These agents provide some alternative when no other options are available.

The Frequent Hemodialysis Network Daily Trial compared conventional three-times weekly treatment to more frequent treatment with a longer weekly treatment time in patients receiving in-center hemodialysis. Evaluation at one year showed favorable effects of more intensive treatment on left ventricular mass, blood pressure, and phosphate control, but modest or no effects on physical or cognitive performance. The current study compared plasma concentrations of uremic solutes in stored samples from 53 trial patients who received three-times weekly in-center hemodialysis for an average weekly time of 10...

BACKGROUND: There is evidence that end-stage kidney disease patients who are older or with more comorbidity may have a poor trade-off between benefits of dialysis and potential harms. We aimed to develop a tool for predicting patient mortality in the early stages of receiving dialysis. METHODS: In 23 658 patients aged 15+ years commencing dialysis between 2000 and 2009 in Australia and New Zealand a point score tool was developed to predict 6-month mortality based on a logistic regression analysis of factors available at dialysis initiation...

INTRODUCTION: Chills are a complication of patients undergoing hemodialysis. The rate of infection among hemodialysis patients presenting with chills is not well established and empirical broad spectrum antibiotics are usually the rule. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study aiming to assess the rates of infection and bacteremia in hemodialysis patients presenting with chills. We evaluated risk factors for infection and bacteremia and tested a prediction model for infection...

BACKGROUND: Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are at a high risk of cardiovascular mortality (CVM). In patients with ESRD, arterial stiffness increases at an earlier age when compared to the general population and this contributes to the overall risk of cardiovascular mortality. The main objective of this study was to clarify the interplay between age and cardiovascular alterations in ESRD. METHODS: Prospective, observational cohort study initiated in April 1987 until the end of 1998 with events recorded until the end of the year 2000 at the F...

BACKGROUND: Information on an individual's risk for death following dialysis therapy initiation may inform the decision to initiate maintenance dialysis for older adults. We derived and validated a clinical risk prediction tool for all-cause mortality among older adults during the first 6 months of maintenance dialysis treatment. STUDY DESIGN: Prediction model using retrospective administrative and clinical data. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: We linked administrative and clinical data to define a cohort of 2,199 older adults (age ≥ 65 years) in Alberta, Canada, who initiated maintenance dialysis therapy (excluding acute kidney injury) in May 2003 to March 2012...

REVIEW
Manish Saha, Michael Allon
Given the high comorbidity in patients on hemodialysis and the complexity of the dialysis treatment, it is remarkable how rarely a life-threatening complication occurs during dialysis. The low rate of dialysis emergencies can be attributed to numerous safety features in modern dialysis machines; meticulous treatment and testing of the dialysate solution to prevent exposure to trace elements, toxins, and pathogens; adherence to detailed treatment protocols; and extensive training of dialysis staff to handle medical emergencies...

Maintenance dialysis patients experience a high burden of physical and emotional symptoms that directly affect their quality of life and health care utilization. In this review, we specifically highlight common troublesome symptoms affecting dialysis patients: insomnia, restless legs syndrome, and uremic pruritus. Epidemiology, pathophysiology, and evidence-based current treatment are reviewed with the goal of providing a guide for diagnosis and treatment. Finally, we identify multiple additional areas of further study needed to improve symptom management in dialysis patients...

REVIEW
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...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review focuses on recent advances in our understanding of intradialytic hypotension (IDH) and measures that may reduce its frequency. RECENT FINDINGS: The frequency and severity of IDH predict the risk for adverse clinical outcomes. The highest mortality risks associated with IDH were observed when the intradialytic systolic blood pressure (SBP) nadirs were <90 and <100 mmHg and the predialysis SBP were ≤159 mmHg or ≥160 mmHg, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Hyperkalemia is common in patients receiving maintenance hemodialysis. However, few studies have examined the association between serum potassium level and mortality. METHODS: This study used annual cohorts of hemodialysis patients during 2007-2010. To determine hyperkalemia prevalence, monthly hyperkalemia was defined as serum potassium level ≥5.5 mEq/l; prevalence was calculated as a ratio of hyperkalemia episodes to follow-up time, reported separately by long and short interdialytic interval...

INTRODUCTION: Intradialytic hypertension with a prevalence of 15% among hemodialysis patients is with unknown pathophysiology, demographic, laboratoiy and clinical characteristic of patients, and it's influence on longtenn clinical effects (cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, rate of hospitalization). The aim of the study is to present the clinical, laboratoiy and demographic characteristics of patients with intradialytic hypertension in our dialysis center. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Out of 110 hemodialysis patients, 17 patients (15,45%) had intradialytic hypertension - started at a systolic pressure greater than 140 nun Hg or had an increase in systolic pressure more than 10 mm Hg during the session, and 17 patients were nonnotensive or had a drop in blood pressure dining the dialysis...

Chronic fatigue--an overwhelming subjective feeling of mental or physical exhaustion--impacts patients' everyday functioning and quality of life, delays recovery after hemodialysis, and increases mortality. There are a number of factors that may perpetuate clinically significant fatigue among individuals with chronic kidney disease, including sleep disorders, depression, sedentary lifestyle, anemia, and chronic inflammation. Some of these factors (i.e., anemia and inflammation) are in the forefront of clinical attention, whereas the other contributing factors often remain unrecognized...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The International Society of Renal Nutrition and Metabolism (ISRNM) has recently recommended the use of the term "protein-energy wasting" (PEW). PEW is a state of malnutrition with decreased body stores of protein and energy fuel in hemodialysis patients and is known as a risk factor for morbidity and mortality. We examined the prevalence of PEW and the characteristics of PEW patients in a hemodialysis center in Japan. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: Fifty-nine outpatients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis at Iga City General Hospital were evaluated...
