  1. 1. Analysis of Transvascular Transport Phenomena in the glomerular and peritoneal microcirculation

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : CARL ÖBERG; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [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

  2. 2. 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

  4. 4. Sleep Problems in Patients on Peritoneal Dialysis Prevalence, Effects on Daily Life and Evaluation of Non-Pharmacological Interventions

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Pia Yngman-Uhlin; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Östergötlands Läns Landsting.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Fatigue; insomnia; peritoneal dialysis; renal supportive care; sleep; self-care management; sleep hygiene; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Sleep problems affect a considerable number (49-86%) of patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment. Insomnia i.e. difficulties to initiate and/or maintain sleep or too early wakening, combined with daytime symptoms, seems to be the dominating problem. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biological effects of glucose degradation products in peritoneal dialysis fluids

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Peter Jonasson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peritoneal dialysis; glucose degradation products; peritonitis; peritoneum; neutrophils; macrophages; vital microscopy; microcirculation; complement; leukocyte recruitment; respiratory burst.;

    Abstract : Background: It is well known that Peritoneal dialysis (PD) fluids have biological effects on a number of cells and tissues in the peritoneum and the peritoneal cavity. However, little attention has been paid to the influence of glucose degradation products (GDPs), formed during heat-sterilization and storage of PD fluids. READ MORE
