Hyper/hypo-osmotic peritoneal dialysis

Journal of Dialysis
A ZelmanD Gisser


This report concerns the augmentation of peritoneal dialysis using alternating hyper/hypoosmotic peritoneal dialysates, and covers a detailed examination of the longest lived, anephric goat to be maintained using this delivery system. Experimental results show that with this technique: 1) urea clearance can be increased some 200% over control values, 2) the convective transport of urea is unimportant and the increased urea clearance is due primarily to increased peritoneal permeability, 3) net ultrafiltration and electrolyte balance can be easily controlled by variation of total electrolyte and glucose about an appropriate mean. A detailed autopsy failed to demonstrate any gross or microscopic pathology.

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.
