  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

  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. Impact of renal dysfunction on serum Prostate-Specific Antigen

    University dissertation from Department of Nephrology and Transplantation, Lund University

    Author : Laila Bruun; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Urologi; hK2; Urology; intra-individual variation; elimination; peritoneal dialysis; renal dysfunction; kidney transplantation; hemodialysis; nefrologi; nephrology; PSA;

    Abstract : Measurement of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in blood is an important tool in detection for prostate cancer. PSA occurs in several molecular forms in blood: mainly as a free form with a molecular mass of 28 kDa; and as PSA complexed to alpha-1-antichymotrypsin, complexed PSA, with a molecular mass of 90 kDa.

  5. 5. Extracting Cardiac Information From the Pressure Sensors of a Dialysis Machine

    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
