Involves hooking a bag of dialysate to the catheter and emptying it into peritoneal cavity and leaving the dialysate there for four or five hours, drain back into bag and then discard bag
Introduced multi-wavelength algorithms enable reliable and more accurate calculation of the uremic toxins concentration from the spent dialysate compared to one wavelength calculations.
Non-pharmacological methods such as reduction in dry weight and individualization of the sodium dialysate prescription represent effective means of reducing blood pressure in patients receiving dialysis.
For both studies, samples of blood and spent dialysate were taken at discrete times for the analysis (Table 1).
Our findings suggest that catheter insertion should be performed by trained dialysis unit staff; patients should be educated to present to the unit if they experience any abdominal pain; peritoneal dialysate fluid should be inoculated directly into blood culture bottles; and patients should be told to avoid antibiotics unless prescribed by dialysis unit staff.
It is designed to use a dialysand to dialysate ratio of 1:1 and up to 200 [micro]L in each compartment.
In a small pilot study, patients fell asleep faster and stayed asleep longer at night when they received cooler dialysate than when they received standard-temperature dialysate.
Patients may use more hypertonic dialysis solution to increase ultrafiltration; however, that will lead to a further increase in the intraabdominal pressure and subsequently, increased flux of the dialysate into the pleural space causing worsening of symptoms.
Furthermore, to determine whether these changes in dialysate DA concentrations provide a more sensitive index of altered DA function than do changes in postmortem tissue DA concentrations, we measured striatal tissue DA concentrations in male rats of the same age, exposed to PCBs for identical periods of time.
The dialysate is infused into the peritoneal (abdominal) cavity by way of a catheter.
