Impact of an early weighing policy on neonatal hypernatraemic dehydration and breast feeding
TLDR
Weighing babies early coupled with appropriate lactation support resulted in the early recognition of NHD, with less dehydration, less severe hypernatraemia, and higher breastfeeding rates in the short and medium term.
A crossover comparison of progression of chronic renal failure: ketoacids versus amino acids.
TLDR
It is concluded that KA slow progression, relative to AA, independently of protein or phosphorus intake, in patients on this regimen is concluded.
Progression of chronic renal failure in patients given ketoacids following amino acids.
TLDR
This ketoacid supplemented regimen apparently halted the progression of moderately-severe chronic renal failure for at least a year in a small group of patients in whom restriction of protein and phosphate intake without ketoacids failed to halt progression.
Progression of chronic renal failure is related to glucocorticoid production.
TLDR
Progression of chronic renal failure during 35 treatment periods in 27 patients was measured as the rate of change of bimonthly radioisotope GFR for an average of 15 months, and additional significant regressors appeared: serum triglycerides and polycystic kidney disease and ketoacid treatment, which tended to be associated with more rapid progression.
PREDICTION OF ACUTE RENAL FAILURE BY “BEDSIDE FORMULA” IN MEDICAL AND SURGICAL INTENSIVE CARE PATIENTS
TLDR
The bedside formula appears superior to APACHE II in predicting ARF or death in MICU but not SICU, which suggests that these two ICU populations are different.
Progression of chronic renal failure on substituting a ketoacid supplement for an amino acid supplement.
TLDR
The results suggest that this ketoacid supplement slows progression by approximately half, compared with an essential amino acid supplement, with no change in diet.
Effect of oral L-carnitine on serum myoglobin in hemodialysis patients.
TLDR
Oral L-carnitine may lower serum myoglobin and improve muscle cramps and weakness in hemodialysis patients and the maximal effect of carnitine occurs 2 weeks before the maximal improvement in muscular symptoms.
Progression of chronic renal failure in patients given keto acids following amino acids.
Twelve patients with chronic renal failure who exhibited a progressive decline in 24-h creatinine clearance despite being given, for 2-10 months, a diet containing 0.3 g of protein/kg ideal weight
Risk Factors to Predict Renal Failure and Death in the Medical Intensive Care Unit
TLDR
It is concluded that at admission, hypoalbuminemia, urinary hypo-osmolality, and abnormal creatinine levels are predictive of acute renal failure and death, diagnosis, and mental status impact on the risk for acute kidney failure.
