A high blood level in the air trap reduces microemboli during hemodialysis.
Previous studies have demonstrated the presence of air microemboli in the dialysis circuit and in the venous circulation of the patients during hemodialysis. In vitro studies indicate that a highExpand

A Significant Proportion of Patients Treated with Citrate Containing Dialysate Need Additional Anticoagulation
Background The blood membrane interaction induced during hemodialysis (HD) activates the coagulation system. To prevent clotting and to maintain dialyzer patency, an anticoagulant such as tinzaparinExpand

Development of air micro bubbles in the venous outlet line: an in vitro analysis of various air traps used for hemodialysis.
Venous air traps were tested in vitro with respect to presence of micro bubbles. Three types of venous air traps were measured (Bioline, Bioline GmbH, Luckenwalde, Germany; Gambro, Gambro AB, Lund,Expand

Limited scientific evidence supports the use of conservative treatment interventions for pain and function in patients with subacromial impingement syndrome: randomized control trials
Abstract Background: Different conservative treatment interventions are often used to decrease pain and improve function in patients with subacromial impingement syndrome (SAIS). However, the currentExpand

Current leakage in hemodialysis machines may be a safety risk for patients.
During hemodialysis, the dialysis fluid is conductive and allows current to flow from or to the machine if a difference in electrical potential occurs. This may cause a health risk for the patient.Expand

Air bubbles pass the security system of the dialysis device without alarming.
During hemodialysis microembolic findings have been noted after the venous chamber (subclavian vein). The aim of this study was to evaluate if air could pass the venous chamber and, if so, if itExpand

The sensor in the venous chamber does not prevent passage of air bubbles during hemodialysis.
We previously showed, in vitro, that micro bubbles pass the air trap without inducing an alarm. The aim was to investigate if micro bubbles bypass the detector during hemodialysis (HD). During HD (40Expand

Microemboli, developed during haemodialysis, pass the lung barrier and may cause ischaemic lesions in organs such as the brain.
BACKGROUND Chronic haemodialysis (HD) may relieve some medical problems of terminal uraemia, but the life expectancy of patients is still significantly shortened, and there is a greatly increasedExpand

Hemodialysis Dialyzers Contribute to Contamination of Air Microemboli that Bypass the Alarm System in the Air Trap
Background Previous studies have shown that micrometer-sized air bubbles are introduced into the patient during hemodialysis. The aim of this study was to investigate, in vitro, the influence ofExpand

A high blood level in the venous chamber and a wet‐stored dialyzer help to reduce exposure for microemboli during hemodialysis
During hemodialysis (HD), microemboli develop in the blood circuit of the apparatus. These microemboli can pass through the venous chamber and enter into the patient's circulation. The aim of thisExpand
