Evidence for pulmonary microembolization during hemodialysis

M D BischelJ G Mohler


The generation of microaggregates during the extracorporeal circulation of heparinized blood through two types of hemodialyzers was demonstrated by increased screen filtration resistance. Arterial blood deoxygenation and widening of the alveolar-arterial oxygen difference occurred following either unfiltered or inadequately filtered dialysis. These changes were consistent with pulmonary microembolization. The blood gas abnormalities and the increased screen filtration resistance were reversed or improved when venous line microemboli filters were used.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.
