    To evaluate the mechanism(s) of dialysis disequilibrium syndrome, measurements of pH and PCO2 in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and plasma, and of sodium, potassium, calcium, urea, creatinine, water content and osmolality in brain, CSF, and plasma were made in seven groups of dogs, including normal...

    Loss of hypoxic vasodilation has been proposed as a causative factor in the development of hypertension in dialysis patients treated with recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuHPO). Venous occlusion plethysmography was therefore performed on 22 dialysis patients (aged 23 to 71 years, dialysis...

    Daily measurements of nitrogen balance were made at two levels of protéin intake in five patients undergoing chronic intermittent dialysis therapy. During ingestion of high (1.4 g/kg of body wt) protéin intake, nitrogen balance was positive on nondialysis days and negative on dialysis...
