  1. 1. Haemodialysis Treatment Monitored On-line by Ultra Violet Absorbance

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och vård

    Author : Fredrik Uhlin; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dialysis; Hemodialysis; Proteins; Metabolism; Renal dialysis; Ultraviolet spectrophotometry; Urea; Uremia; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Kidney diseases; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin 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. Analysis of Transvascular Transport Phenomena in the glomerular and peritoneal microcirculation

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : CARL ÖBERG; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peritoneal dialysis; glomerular filtration barrier; pore model; automated peritoneal dialysis APD ; three-pore model;

    Abstract : The current work is devoted entirely to the study of passive transport phenomena, or more specifically, the more simple diffusion, electric migration and filtration of solute matter and water over glomerular and peritoneal capillary walls. The driving forces behind such trans-capillary transport phenomena have long been assumed to be simple gradients of concentration, hydrostatic pressure and electric potential. READ MORE

  3. 3. Oxidative stress and inflammation as a response to glucose exposure and dialysis

    University dissertation from Department of Nephrology, Lund University

    Author : Anna Bryland; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glucose; glucose degradation products; dialysis; diabetes; oxidative stress; inflammation; endothelial dysfunction;

    Abstract : Abstract: The main player of this thesis is glucose, both on a cellular level and with a clinical approach. Too much or wrongly handled glucose contributes to increased inflammation and oxidative stress, which is reinforced by the negative influences of uraemia and dialysis treatment. READ MORE

  4. 4. Microbial biofilms on peritoneal dialysis catheters

    University dissertation from Malmö University, Faculty of Odontology, Department of Oral Biology

    Author : Maria Pihl; Malmö University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Microbiology Bacteriology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Mikrobiologi Bakteriologi; Medicine; Peritoneal dialysis; Biofilm;

    Abstract : When the kidneys are failing the blood needs to be purified artificially. This can be done using peritoneal dialysis, in which a catheter is surgically inserted into the peritoneal cavity, through the abdominal wall, and used to infuse or withdraw dialysis fluid. READ MORE

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jon Gjessing; Uppsala universitet.; [1969]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;
