- Severe Hypoglycemia Accompanied with Thyroid Crisis. Nakatani, Yuki; Monden, Tsuyoshi; Sato, Minoru; Domeki, Nozomi; Matsumura, Mihoko; Banba, Nobuyuki; Nakamoto, Takaaki // Case Reports in Endocrinology;2012, p1
We report a 32-year-old Japanese women with severe hypoglycemia accompanied with thyroid crisis. She complained of dyspnea, general fatigue, and leg edema. She was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism with congestive heart failure and liver dysfunction. Soon after admission, sudden cardiopulmonary...
- Why are Hemodialysis Treatments Shortened and Skipped? Development of a Taxonomy and Relationship to Patient Subgroups. Gordon, Elisa J.; Leon, Janeen B.; Sehgal, Ashwini R. // Nephrology Nursing Journal;Apr2003, Vol. 30 Issue 2, p209
Focuses on a study which analyzed the shortening and postponement of hemodialysis treatments in the U.S. attributed to inadequate dialysis and increased mortality. Methods; Results; Discussion; Implications for patient care.
- Inside Lab Invest. // Laboratory Investigation (00236837);Feb2011, Vol. 91 Issue 2, p168
The article discusses various articles published within the issue, including one on the use of Krï¿½ppel-like factor 15 (KLF15) as a regulator for adipogenesis, one on the administration of glucose to weaken the complications due to intestinal ischemia/reperfusion injury (I/R), and one on the...
- Concerns About Meta-analysis of Glucose Control and Cardiovascular Disease in Type 2 Diabetes. Yudkin, John S.; Richter, Bernd; Kelly, Tanika N.; Jiang He // Annals of Internal Medicine;1/5/2010, Vol. 152 Issue 1, p63
A letter to the editor is presented in response to the article about the meta-analysis of glucose control and cardiovascular disease in type 2 diabetes in the previous issue.
- Adherence to the Dialysis Prescription: Partnering with Patients for Improved Outcomes. White, Breiterman Randee // Nephrology Nursing Journal;Jul/Aug2004, Vol. 31 Issue 4, p432
Nonadherence is common in the U.S. dialysis population. No single strategy has been definitely proven to yield universal and/or lasting improvements in adherence. However, using a patient-centered approach, including the removal of barriers to adherence, ongoing education, and cognitive...
- Comparison of two methods for predicting equilibrated Kt/V (eKt/V) using true eKt/V value. Marsenic, O.; Peco-Antic, A.; Jovanovic, O. // Pediatric Nephrology;1999, Vol. 13, p418
Two methods have been suggested by Daugirdas and Schneditz (the rate equation), and Smye for predicting true equilibrated Kt/V (eKt/V) without the need for obtaining a blood sample 60 min after hemodialysis (HD). We compared the accuracy of these two methods when applied to pediatric HD....
- Non-invasive intravascular monitoring in the pediatric hemodialysis population. Jain, Sanjeev R.; Smith, Lori; Brewer, Eileen D.; Goldstein, S. L. // Pediatric Nephrology;2001, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p15
Assessment of dry weight in pediatric hemodialysis (HD) patients is difficult, since small fluid shifts may result in dialysis-associated morbidity (DAM) and children may not verbalize complaints. Achieving dry weight is critical since chronic fluid overload can result in hypertension and left...
- Literature Abstract. Brem, A.S.; Lambert, C.; Hill, C.; Kitsen, J.; Shemin, D.G. // Pediatric Nephrology;Aug2001, Vol. 16 Issue 8, pB691
Presents an abstract on the outcome data on two groups of pediatric dialysis patients that were taken from a study on the clinical indicators of end-stage renal disease. Evidence that smaller children belonging to both sample groups tend to have a greater dialysis adequacy; Evidence that...
