For the first time, it was confirmed that a light emitting diod based miniaturized optical monitor is capable to estimate dialysis dose
and nutritional status without blood samples and offers a possibility for simplified mapping of the dialysis.
The optical dialysis adequacy sensor, DIAMON, would facilitate HD dialysis adequacy monitoring, providing continuous, on-line measurements of dialysis dose
and individual follow-up of dietary protein intake of HD patients.
Comparison of alternative methods for scaling dialysis dose
It helps healthcare professionals give their patients an optimal dialysis dose
and allows them to adjust treatment parameters for the benefit of patients even during treatment.
Hemoglobin normalization results in lower dialysis dose
, despite high dialysate flow.
Dialysate Made from Dry Chemicals Using Citric Acid Increases Dialysis Dose
The DOPPS has shown significant associations between increased mortality risk and low dialysis dose
(Port, Pisoni, Bragg-Gresham, Satayathum, Young, Wolfe, et al.
The dialysis dose
was controlled by an equilibrated double-pool Kt/V value, which was considered as an indicator for the dialysis dose
during the intervention.
If you weigh more than 175 pounds or if your peritoneum filters wastes slowly, you may need a combination of CAPD and CCPD to get the fight dialysis dose
Inadequate dialysis dose
has been linked to higher mortality rates, and Medicare's payment policy for dialysis has often been cited by dialysis units as a barrier to increasing the dose of dialysis.
In designing the program, Fresenius Medical Care wanted to address some of the reversible risk factors contributing to early mortality, such as nutrition, anemia, dialysis dose
, and patient empowerment.
Numerous clinical studies have shown that an increased cumulative dialysis dose
results in better patient outcomes.
is most commonly quantified by use of the unitless expression Kt/V, where K is the clearance of the dialyzer (milliliters of plasma cleared of urea per min), t is the duration of the dialysis treatment, and V is the patient's urea distribution volume.
The two organizations will provide to the dialysis-dependent patients and their families information on optimal dialysis dose
, nutritional facts, anemia management and coping.
The potential for home hemodialysis is of great interest to us, because patients with kidney failure who today must travel several times per week for dialysis could benefit from an increased cumulative dialysis dose
without the inconvenience of leaving home," said Derrick L.
