Hemodynamic changes during sequential ultrafiltration and dialysis

Kidney International
B WehleJ Bergström


Seven patients on regular dialysis were studied to elucidate the hemodynamic changes during ultrafiltration and dialysis, performed sequentially, the period of ultrafiltration (1 hour) either preceding or following dialysis (3 hours). During dialysis ultrafiltration was prevented by applying positive pressure in the dialysate compartment. Cardiac index (dye dilution: indocyanine green), heart rate, stroke volume index, blood pressure, and total peripheral vascular resistance index were measured. During ultrafiltration, cardiac index and stroke volume index decreased, but heart rate was not significantly changed. Total peripheral vascular resistance increased, resulting in unchanged blood pressure. During dialysis, the total peripheral vascular resistance decreased, but cardiac index and heart rate increased. BP decreased when the increase in cardiac index was insufficient to compensate for the decrease in total peripheral vascular resistance. PRA increased during ultrafiltration due to hypovolemia and decreased during dialysis, presumably due to decreased sympathetic activity which may also be a cause of dialysis-induced vasodilation.

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.

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
