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

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Bernd Ramsauer; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : 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

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Bergur V. Stefánsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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

    University dissertation from Department of Biomedical Engineering, Lund university

    Author : Mattias Holmer; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017-05-19]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; 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. Signal Modeling and Detection in Nephrologic and Cardiac Applications

    University dissertation from Department of Biomedical Engineering, Lund university

    Author : Kristian Solem; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Heart rate turbulence HRT ; Heart rate variability HRV ; Electrocardiogram ECG ; Pulse oximetry.; Biomedical signal processing; Intradialytic hypotension; Hemodialysis; Ectopic beats;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis is comprised of five parts in the field of biomedical signal processing with focus on methods for use in hemodialysis as well as in cardiac applications. The problem of predicting hypotension is the main concern in the parts were data from patients undergoing hemodialysis are used. READ MORE
