  1. 1. Glucose degradation products in patients on hemodialysis : interventional studies

    Author : Bernd Ramsauer; Bernd Stegmayr; Henrik Hadimeri; Bengt Lindholm; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hemodialysis; advanced glycation end products; skin autofluorescence; plasma autofluorescence; glucose degradation products;

    Abstract : Hemodialysis (HD) is the most frequently used treatment for end-stage renal disease. Despite all efforts to improve the outcomes, the mortality of patients on HD is still high, and this especially is related to cardiovascular diseases (CVD). READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies on treatment of renal anemia in patients on chronic hemodialysis

    Author : Bergur V. Stefánsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : hemodialysis; IV iron; oxidative stress; erythropoietin; hepcidin;

    Abstract : In patients with chronic kidney disease, treatment with erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESA) effectively corrects anemia. Most of these patients also need supplementation with regular iron injections to secure iron availability for proper erythropoiesis. READ MORE

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Cardiac signal analysis during hemodialysis.... READ MORE

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Influence of bone-associated and cardiovascular biomarkers on vascular events and mortality in relation to renal dysfunction

    Author : Ping-Hsun Wu; Östen Ljunggren; Bengt Fellström; Torbjörn Linde; Jonas Spaak; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; biomarkers; bone markers; cardiovascular markers; proteomics; vascular event; mortality; renal function; hemodialysis; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Biomarkers can help physicians identify subjects with an increased cardiovascular risk. Apart from the clinical factors, some biomarkers have been recognized as important predictors and risk factors for cardiovascular disease in renal disease. READ MORE
