  1. 1. 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

    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.

  4. 4. Everyday Life among Next of Kin of Haemodialysis Patients

    Author : Kristina Ziegert; Berit Lundman; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
    Keywords : Next of kin; Haemodialysis; Everyday life; Health; Time; Life situation; Professional support; Nursing process; Qualitativ analysis; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Everyday life can be complex when next of kin of haemodialysis patients are preoccupied with taking care of the patient and his/her health, which implies the difficulties and requirements needed. The general aim of this thesis was to explore and describe everyday life among next of kin of haemodialysis patients with focus on the life situation, health, time and professional support.

  5. 5. Safety and biological aspects of present techniques of haemodialysis

    Author : Per Jonsson; Hans Dietrich Polaschegg; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : haemodialysis; safety; leakage current; central dialysis catheter; microbubbles; microemboli; air contamination; transfusion medicine; transfusionsmedicin;

    Abstract : Introduction: Haemodialysis (HD) is a treatment in which blood from the patient is lead through a tubing system into a dialysis device in a extracorporeal circuit. This circuit contains semipermeable membranes (dialyzer). Blood with uraemic toxins flows on one side, and a salt solution flows on the other side. READ MORE
