  1. 1. 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

  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

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. On repetitive control

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Gunnar Hillerström; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [1994]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Reglerteknik; Control Engineering;

    Abstract : This thesis will concern control systems ability to enhance performance by repeating, while maintaining a stable and sufficiently fast closed loop performance. Iterative techniques can be divided into repetitive and learning control. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
