OBJECTIVE To evaluate lung function and functional capacity in patients with chronic kidney failure (CKF) undergoing dialysis and in patients after kidney transplant. METHODS Seventy-two participants were evaluated: 32 patients with CKF on dialysis (DG) for at least six months, ten patients who had kidney transplants (TG) at least six months earlier, and(More)

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the magnitude of diurnal changes in the parameters of pulmonary function and respiratory muscle strength/endurance in a sample of patients with COPD. METHODS A group of 7 patients underwent spirometry, together with determination of MIP and MEP, at two distinct times (between 8:00 and 8:30 a.m. and between 4:30 and 5:00 p.m.) on a(More)

PURPOSE To establish a model of chronic kidney disease in White New Zealand rabbits, using an exclusive unilateral technique of renal ischemia and reperfusion. METHODS Twenty males White New Zealand rabbits were used. All animals were subjected to the following: pre-surgical blood collection (1st collection) for creatinine and urea serum analysis, left(More)
