key Scaling UF rate limits to body surface area. Drs. Daugirdas and Schneditz argue that scaling UF rate limits to body weight will result in uneven risk patterns, and be overly restrictive for small patients, and not sufficiently restrictive for large patients; in the Jan/Feb issue of Seminars in Dialysis. (more...)

Seminars in Dialysis
key Sources of mortality on dialysis with an emphasis on microemboli. Dr. Stegmayr brings up the important point that our blood leak detectors really pass a great number of smaller microemboli during dialysis. The concentration depends on the blood flow rate and also the height of the blood in the venous chamber. This is an unrecognized source of potentially long term side effects that perhaps we should worry more about; in the Nov/Dec issue of Seminars in Dialysis. (more...)

Site Description:
Hypertension, Dialysis, and Clinical Nephrology provides up-to-date, selected information on renal disorders and their treatment (hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis), and about hypertension, dialysis, and clinical nephrology topics.
Hypertension, Dialysis, and Clinical Nephrology is a place for physicians and nurses who treat patients with kidney or renal disease. Here physicians and nurses can find answers to frequently asked hypertension, dialysis, and nephrology questions (FAQ), pointers to recent review articles, and summaries of hot new hypertension, dialysis, and nephrology papers, abstracts, and meeting presentations. Also, information about medical products, devices, services, and drugs pertaining to hypertension, dialysis, and clinical nephrology are provided, as is a list of links to relevant hypertension / dialysis / transplantation organizations, medical provider networks, and databases. Much of the information presented is collected from a distinguished editorial board composed of specialists in the field of kidney or renal disease.
