    Author : Fredrik Uhlin; Lars-Göran Lindberg; Martin Magnusson; Bernd Stegmayr; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dialysis; Hemodialysis; Proteins; Metabolism; Renal dialysis; Ultraviolet spectrophotometry; Urea; Uremia; Kidney diseases; Njursjukdomar;

    Abstract : This thesis describes and evaluates an optical method utilizing ultra violet (UV) absorbance for on-line monitoring of haemodialysis treatment. Increased efficiency of haemodialysis treatment is considered to correlate to decreased morbidity and mortality when urea clearance (Kt/V) is elevated. READ MORE

  2. 2. How to reduce the exposure to anticoagulants when performing haemodialysis in patients with a bleeding risk : a study of methods used in clinical practise

    Abstract : When a patient suffers from kidney failure and also has an enhanced risk of bleeding, the standard haemodialysis (HD) treatment becomes a problem. When human blood comes in contact with artificial material, as in the tubing system and in the dialyser (the extra corporeal circuit, ECC), the coagulation system is activated. READ MORE
