Association of achieved dialysis dose with mortality in the hemodialysis study: an example of "dose-targeting bias".
Novel algorithms for measuring concentration of water soluble small molecular weight uremic toxins, urea, uric acid, and creatinine, in the spent dialysate for the estimation of dialysis dose and nutritional status (protein nitrogen appearance and lean body mass) on dialysis patients were developed [51-53].
Measures such as mortality rates, hospitalization rates, transfusion rates, and dialysis dose adequacy can be considered for inclusion if differences in quality of care in the production of dialysis services are to be understood and controlled for.
On-line monitoring of the dialysis dose has been suggested as a valuable tool to ensure adequate dialysis prescription [7].
While survival and hospitalizations were not substantially different among the 1,800 hemodialysis patients randomly assigned to high or standard dialysis doses and high- or low-flux filters, there were intriguing-though not definitive-findings for certain patients.
One-sixth of the 200,000 Americans undergoing hemodialysis treatment do not receive an adequate dialysis dose, it was bund.
The target dialysis dose for each patient was monitored using the more accurate and validated expression of equilibrated Kt/V, or eKt/V, which is derived from the traditional single-pool Kt/V (spKt/V) and time on dialysis.
The dialysis dose can be increased by using a larger bag, but only within the limit of the amount your abdomen can hold.
In designing the program, FMCNA sought to address some of the reversible risk factors contributing to early mortality, such as poor nutrition, anemia, poor mineral metabolism, cardiac issues, inadequate dialysis dose, and lack of patient empowerment.
The dialysis dose (DD) is a key element of dialysis adequacy and affects survival of patients undergoing dialysis.
A number of published studies suggest that factors related to practice patterns, such as dialysis dose, vascular access, and injectable drugs can influence patient outcomes.
