We describe a method to produce bicarbonate-based dialysates containing approximately 100 mg/dl ethanol by introducing the alcohol into one of the dialysate concentrate solutions geared for the production of bicarbonate-based dialysates.
A phosphorus-enriched dialysate was used to intensively hemodialyze two non-uremic and non-hyperphosphatemic patients poisoned with ethylene glycol. As a consequence of the use of such a dialysate, we were able to prevent a fall in plasma inorganic phosphorus levels in these patients in spite of the intensive dialytic therapy.
A 64-year-old woman presented with coma and shock due to severe ethanol intoxication. Her initial, markedly elevated blood alcohol level of 136.5 mM fell only by 16% after a 4-hour period of conservative treatment consisting of mechanical respiration and the administration of intravenous fluids, vasopressors and inotropics. Subsequent hemodialysis rapidly… (More)
