Background Self-management has shown to improve the quality of life in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Readily accessible self-management tools are essential in promoting adherence to self-care behaviors. In recognizing that digital health facilitates efficient access to self-management programs, we developed a digital counseling progra...
Article
Patients have varied learning styles and this has implications for home hemodialysis (HHD). Assessment tools directed towards understanding these styles remains understudied. As a consequence, this may lead to substandard retention rates or adverse events in HHD programs. As part of a continuous quality improvement initiative we have aimed to impro...
Article
We present an unusual but severe complication of peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheter removal resulting in significant haemorrhage and hospitalisation. A patient presented for PD catheter removal under local anaesthesia in the interventional radiology suite and was noted to have a heavily calcified deep Dacron cuff. This cuff was intimately associated...
Article
Purpose of review: Renal involvement in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus can lead to significant complications including end-stage renal disease. Treatment of lupus nephritis has evolved over the last several decades, but despite this evolution, many patients fail to achieve remission and often progress to end-stage kidney disease or car...

The risk of natural disasters and pandemics will continue to rise as the population around the globe rises. These events can be disruptive to social infrastructure and the healthcare system, putting vulnerable populations, particularly those on dialysis, at risk. Hemodialysis [HD] is heavily reliant on these infrastructures, and caring for HD patie...
Chapter
This chapter provides a broad overview of the different types of diffusive and adsorptive clearances for the removal of various poisons along with a summary of current EXTRIP (EXtracorporeal TReatments In Poisoning) workgroup recommendations.

Background Inotropic dependence and diuretic resistance in patients with cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) lead to frequent hospitalizations and are associated with high mortality. Starting peritoneal dialysis (PD) acutely (within 2 weeks of a heart failure hospitalization) offers effective volume removal without hemodynamic compromise in this population....

Rationale: Hemodialysis patients are at significant risk from COVID-19 due to their frequent interaction with the health care system and medical comorbidities. We followed up the trajectory of the first COVID-19-positive maintenance hemodialysis patient at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto. We present the lessons learned and changes in...

Introduction The provision of sufficient support contributes to home hemodialysis (HHD) technique survival. The need for back‐up treatment in incident and prevalent patients on HHD has not been well described previously, and is important from both technique survival and resource allocation. We aimed to quantify the amount of back‐up treatment given...

Objectives Home haemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) have seen growth in utilisation around the globe over the last few years. However, home dialysis, with its attendant technical complexity and risk of adverse events continues to pose challenges for wider adoption. We examined whether differences in patients’ learning styles are associa...

Elderly patients who receive home dialysis (peritoneal dialysis or home hemodialysis) may have reduced survival compared to younger patients. Therefore, it is important to ascertain the goals of home dialysis in the elderly rather than simply fixate on standard metrics such as technique survival. As Canada’s population continues to age, the prevale...
Article
Coping with the transition from end‐stage kidney disease to dialysis can be challenging for patients and their care partners. Introducing incident dialysis patients to incremental forms of dialysis is associated with better quality of life and reduced cost. Incremental hemodialysis (HD) has generated significant interest over the last decade with t...

Background Compared with the general population, end-stage renal disease patients are at increased risk for bone loss and fractures. Nocturnal hemodialysis offers superior calcium-phosphate control and improved uremic clearance compared with conventional hemodialysis. Rates of bone loss by type of hemodialysis are unknown. Objectives This study aim...
Article
Males often signal to attract mates and can show extensive variation in how much time they spend signalling. In crickets, some males signal extensively, spending over 50% of their adult lives attempting to attract a mate. At the other end of the continuum, some males are rarely observed to signal. Given that signalling efforts are usually correlate...
