BACKGROUND Patient safety experts have postulated that increasing patient participation in communications during patient handovers will improve the quality of patient transitions, and that this may reduce hospital readmissions. Choosing strategies that enhance patient safety through improved handovers requires better understanding of patient experiences and(More)
Erythropoietin corrects anemia and improves hemostasis, but on the other hand bears a risk of thrombotic complications. Therefore in the present study an attempt has been made to evaluate bleeding time, platelet functions and some hemostatic and fibrinolytic parameters in relation to blood and platelet serotonin before and after 1, 2, 4, 8 and 12 weeks of(More)
BACKGROUND Amelioration of the anaemia of chronic renal failure and subsequent improved haemorheology result in correction of bleeding diathesis as evidenced by shortening of the skin bleeding time (BT). However, the relationship between the haematocrit and platelet-vessel wall interactions in haemodialysis (HD) patients under recombinant human(More)
The aim of the work has to assess the effects of L-carnitine therapy on erythropoiesis and whole blood platelet aggregation. The studies were performed in 28 patients divided into 3 groups: I-group was given erythropoietin, II-group was given erythropoietin and L-carnitine, III-group was given L-carnitine. After 22 month of the therapy a statistically(More)
Mast cells (MC) are involved in the pathogenesis of interstitial fibrosis, acute renal transplant rejection, and chronic allograft nephropathy. The aim of this study was to evaluate MC tryptase concentrations in the sera of 58 renal transplant recipients at various times after surgery in relation to graft function. We observed that kidney transplantation(More)
Long-term labour market projections are a popular tool for assessing future skill needs and the possibility of skill shortages. It is often noted that reallocation processes in the German labour market are hindered due to its strong standardization and occupational segmentation. However, it is possible that persons leave the occupation for which they have(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of deferoxamine therapy on erythropoiesis, aluminium concentration and iron metabolism in hemodialyzed patients with chronic renal insufficiency treated with human recombinant erythropoietin (Eprex, Cilag). 8 hemodialyzed patients (2 female and 6 male) in long-term programme with aluminium serum concentration(More)
