Muscle wasting and activity limitations have been reported in patients undergoing hemodialysis, and these ultimately lead to poor quality of life. We aimed to develop a respiratory training device and determine its effectiveness in improving cardiorespiratory performance and dyspnea scores in patients undergoing hemodialysis. Twenty-five (25) patie...

Background The number of patients who suffer from chronic renal failure (CRF) has widely increased worldwide. Patients with advanced stages of CRF experience a gradual and progressive loss of muscle and fat mass leading to decreased physical activity and mental health problems. The loss of muscle mass in CRF might contribute to the development of s...

Background: Muscle wasting and limitation in physical activity have been reported in patients with hemodialysis; this leads to poor quality of life at the end. Objective: To develop the respiratory training device and to determine the efficiency of the prototype on respiratory muscle strength, functional capacity and dyspnea perception in hemodialy...
Article
Background: People with chronic renal failure (CRF) show decreased respiratory fitness and poor quality of life (QOL). Exercise during hemodialysis has been suggested to improve the cardio-respiratory fitness. However, results of effects of respiratory muscle (RM) training on respiratory fitness and QOL are inconsistent. In addition, very few stud...

Background: When non-diabetic renal disease (NDRD) is suspected, kidney biopsy is used for definite diagnosis; however, this is not always easily available and may lead to complications. A clinical prediction score may help selecting appropriate patients for kidney biopsy. Methods: A retrospective cohort study was conducted in type 2 diabetes melli...

Background . Patients with peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis usually have different responses to initial antibiotic treatment. This study aimed to explore the patterns of response by using the changes of dialysate white blood cell count on the first five days of the initial antibiotic treatment. Materials and Methods . A retrospective cohort...

... These studies yielded a total sample of five continents (Asia: 45.6%, Europe: 25.9%, North America: 14.3%, South America: 13.7%, and Australia: 0.5%). Thirty-one studies [19,[22][23][24][25][26][27]29,30,[34][35][36][37][38][39][40][41]43,44,46,[48][49][50][51][52][53][54][55][56][57][58] were conducted in HD population, seven studies [20,21,28,31,32,42,47] were performed in PD population, and three studies [24,33,59] were carried out in mixed populations (both HD and PD). Of the included patients, the mean age was 62.3 years, 61.4% were male, and 38.6% had diabetes mellitus as a comorbidity with a mean dialysis vintage of 52.4 months. ...
... Pellizzaro et al 28 found significant improvement in the 6MWT in patients who underwent IMT in 50% of MIP versus the control group. Yuenyongchaiwat et al 29 observed improvements in respiratory fitness and shortness of breath after IMT at 40% intensity of MIP for 3 days/ week, for 2 months. These results are essential because patients with chronic kidney disease commonly have decreased inspiratory muscle strength or muscle weakness compared with predictive values. ...
... Three patterns of treatment outcome were analysed: early response, delayed response (defined by gradual decline in effluent white cell count but still above 100/mL on day 5) and treatment failure (defined as peritonitis not cured by antibiotics, change to haemodialysis either temporarily or permanently or peritonitis-associated death). 296 This study highlighted the varying rate or trajectory of effluent white cell count decline. In one-fifth of the cases, patients showed delayed response with 34% reduction of effluent white cell count by day 5, without the need for PD catheter removal. ...
