Long-term use of a "stable" bicarbonate containing dialysate

Journal of Dialysis

We present an original method for the preparation of "stable" dialysate containing 35 mEq/l of bicarbonate. The dialysate was utilized with 4 patients for periods ranging from 4 months to 1 year according to a short-term recirculated dialysis schedule in closed circuit (20-40L) (2-2 1/2 hrs) on alternate days. Preliminary results are reported here with respect to the tollerance of the dialytic run and correction of the acid-base balance equilibrium. The clinical tollerance is excellent despite high dehydration rates even in patients particularly sensitive to ultrafiltration. The acidosis correction would seem to be much better with bicarbonate than with traditional dialysis. The difference is even higher if we consider the brevity of the dialysis. During the bicarbonate dialysis we do not observe any fall of the PCO2 or significant difference in PO2 in the patient's blood. The correction of acidosis probably causes the normalization of pre-dialytic potassiemia in spite the "net" removal of K with short dialysis is considerably less.

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.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.
