  1. 1. Excessive Fluid Overload Among Haemodialysis Patients : Prevalence, Individual Characteristics and Self-regulation of Fluid Intake

    Author : Magnus Lindberg; Per Lindberg; Björn Wikström; Regina Wredling; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Behavioural medicine; fluid overload; adherence; haemodialysis; self-efficacy; attentional style; depressive symptomatology; cluster analysis; tailored treatment; quasi-experimental single-case design; Fluid Intake Appraisal Inventory FIAI ; renal nursing; Kidney diseases; Njursjukdomar; Caring sciences; Vårdvetenskap; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science; Caring Sciences; Vårdvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis is comprised of four studies and concerns haemodialysis patients’ confidence in being able to manage fluid intake between treatment sessions, and whether the fluid intake is influenced by certain modifiable characteristics of the persons in question. The overall aim was to study aspects of excessive fluid overload and haemodialysis patients’ self-regulation of fluid allotment from a bio-psychosocial and behavioural medicine perspective.

  2. 2. Fluid Management in Haemodialysis : Studies on current practices and new methods

    Author : Jenny Stenberg; Hans Furuland; Magnus Lindberg; Eva Tiensuu Janson; Bernd Stegmayr; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Haemodialysis; Fluid management; Fluid overload; Bioimpedance spectroscopy; Dry weight; Brain natriuretic peptide; Decision aid; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Chronic fluid overload has been identified as an independent predictor of mortality in haemodialysis patients, and 30% remain fluid overloaded at dry weight. The use of bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) in fluid management may improve blood pressure control and cardiovascular status. READ MORE

  3. 3. Adjuvant therapies to fluid resuscitation in experimental sepsis : Intervention studies in models of ARDS and peritonitis

    Author : Annelie Barrueta Tenhunen; Gaetano Perchiazzi; Johanna Hästbacka; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Acute respiratory distress syndrome; edema formation; peritonitis; sepsis; fluid resuscitation; animal model; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care;

    Abstract : Fluid resuscitation is essential to antagonize the deleterious effects of tissue hypo-perfusion in sepsis. If not thoroughly monitored and individually tailored, fluid therapy increases the risk of volume overload. Volume overload is associated with higher mortality in sepsis. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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.

  5. 5. Volume kinetics of glucose solutions given by intravenous infusion

    Author : Fredrik Sjöstrand; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Volume kinetics; osmosis; dehydration; rehydration; glucose solutions; glucose; hypovolemia; hypoglycemia; fluids; intravenous fluid therapy; fluid shifts; plasma volume; dilution; plasma dilution; intracellular hydration; central volume.;

    Abstract : Fluid therapy is often cumbersome to plan since the distribution and the elimination of the administered solution are difficult to analyze in the clinical setting. The knowledge of the adequate rate and dose for each individual patient and under various physiological conditions would be very attractive to obtain in order to avoid fluid overload and hyperglycemia.
