  1. 1. Extracting Cardiac Information From the Pressure Sensors of a Dialysis Machine

    Author : Mattias Holmer; Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hemodialysis; extracorporeal pressure signals; cardiac pressure signal; heart rate; ventricular premature beats; venous needle dislodgement;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis in biomedical engineering deals with cardiac monitoring using the built-in extracorporeal blood pressure sensors of a hemodialysis machine. Patients treated with hemodialysis often suffer from cardiovascular disease. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fluid state and blood pressure control in patients on maintenance hemodialysis

    Author : Krassimir S Katzarski; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : chronic renal failure; hemodialysis; blood pressure; hypertension; fluid state; extracellular volume; blood volume; dry weight;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of high mortality in dialysis patients. Hypertension is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and despite the use of highly efficient antihypertensive drugs (AHD), blood pressure (BP) is poorly controlled in the vast majority of hemodialysis (HD) patients.

  3. 3. Effects of Hemoglobin Normalization with Epoetin in Chronic Kidney Disease

    Author : Hans Furuland; Björn Wikström; Torbjörn Linde; Peter Barany; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Internal medicine; Anemia; blood viscosity; cardiac output; chronic kidney disease; renal dialysis; dialysis adequacy; erythopoietin; heart rate variability; hemoglobin; hemorheology; hypertension; kidney transplantation; Kt V; left ventricular hypertrophy; Quality of Life; Invärtesmedicin; Internal medicine; Invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Anemia is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CDK), contributes to reduced Quality of Life (QoL) and is associated with cardiovascular disease, morbidity and mortality. Epoetin raises hemoglobin (Hb) and increases QoL and physical exercise capacity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cardiovascular and metabolic effects of endothelins in man : an experimental and clinical study

    Author : Astrid Ottosson-Seeberger; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : endothelin-1; big ET-1; C-terminal big ET-1 22-3 8 fragment; hemodynamic; blood flow; fractional extraction; conversion; plasma half-life; end-stage renal failure; ischemic heart disease; hemodialysis; high-flux membrane; glucose uptake; insulin sensitivity;

    Abstract : Increased plasma concentrations of endothelin-1 (ET-1) and of its propeptide big endothelin-1 have been reported in diseases associated with endothelial dysfunction, cardiovascular remodelling and insulin resistance. In this thesis, we studied the hemodynamic effects of big ET-1 in healthy humans focusing on the mechanisms of the effects (study I-IV). READ MORE
