Health-related Quality of Life and Risk of Malnutrition among Persons on Maintenance Haemodialysis

DOI:

Synopsis: 
We studied the association between health-related quality of life and risk of malnutrition among persons on maintenance haemodialysis. Persons on receiving maintenance haemodialysis had a poorer health-related quality of life score and were more likely to be at risk of malnutrition. This may have implications for effective patient management.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to determine health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and risk of malnutrition among persons with chronic kidney disease (CKD), on maintenance haemodialysis.

Analysis of Water Used For Haemodialysis In Dialysis Centres, South East Nigeria – How Adequate?

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.464
Synopsis: 
Water purity is important for effective haemodialysis. We analysed the water used for haemodialysis in eight centres in South East Nigeria for its adequacy. All these centres failed the standard of the Association for Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI).

 ABSTRACT

Background: Standard water purity is one of the essential ingredients in achieving the goals of haemodialysis. However, water purity, though cardinal to the outcome of haemodialysis is probably the most neglected aspect of renal replacement therapy with haemodialysis.

Atrial Electromechanical Delay and P-wave Dispersion Before and After Haemodialysis in Patients with End-stage Renal Failure

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.190
Synopsis: 
Atrial fibrillation is a dangerous condition and maintaining sinus rhythm is crucial for patients with end-stage renal disease. Haemodialysis sessions have favourable hemodynamic effects which result in the decrement in atrial electromechanical delay and P-wave dispersion.

ABSTRACT

Background: Electromechanical delay (EMD) has been defined as the temporal interval between the onset of cardiac electrical activity and myocardial contraction. Atrial EMD is considered as an independent predictor of atrial fibrillation. In this study, we sought to evaluate the effect of hemodialysis (HD) on atrial electromechanical properties and conduction homogeneity in patients with end-stage renal failure (ESRF).

Evaluation of Nutritional Biochemical Parameters in Haemodialysis Patients Over a Ten-year Period

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.117
Pages: 
213–7
Synopsis: 
This study evaluated the nutritional status of haemodialysis patients by assessing biochemical and anthropometric parameters. The prevalence of malnutrition in haemodialysis patients was evident; however, the results showed that the nutritional deterioration of these patients was mainly reflected in their biochemical parameters rather than in their anthropometric measurements.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To study the correlation of nasal Staphylococcus aureus carrier status in patients on haemodialysis, infected by hepatitis C virus (HCV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and their sociodemographic features.

Pages: 
499–505
Synopsis:

The results indicate that haemodialysis can briefly improve the cellular immune function of patients on maintenance haemodialysis.

ABSTRACT

Background: The study of the effect of different dialysis methods on cellular immune function of maintenance haemodialysis (MHD) patients should provide theoretical support for deciding on the best method of blood purification that effectively improves cellular immune function of haemodialysis patients.

Ischaemic Colitis during Haemodialysis

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.351
Pages: 
404-05

INTRODUCTION

Ischaemic colitis results from a chronic or acute drop in the blood supply to the bowel and accounts for 6%–18% of the causes of acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding. Diabetes mellitus, hypotension, advanced age, aortic surgery and peripheral vascular disease have also been suggested to be predisposing factors for ischaemic colitis. In this report, we present a case of ischaemic colitis in haemodialysis with a good response to conservative treatment.
