A study was undertaken to evaluate the acute hemodynamic effects in ten patients from this clinic's long-term peritoneal dialysis program. With a Swan-Ganz catheter, the following parameters were measured in each patient during peritoneal dialysis: cardiac index, pulmonary artery pressure, right atrial pressure, inferior vena cava pressure, heart rate and(More)
The pharmacokinetics of cefoxitin were examined in 4 healthy volunteers, 6 patients with normal renal function (inulin clearance, greater than 80 ml/min per 1.73 m2), and 35 patients with various degrees of renal insufficiency (inulin clearance, 80 to less than 5 ml/min per 1.73 m2). A single dose of 30 mg of cefoxitin per kg of body weight was injected(More)
The pharmacokinetics of mezlocillin were examined in 8 patients with normal renal function (inulin clearance, > 80 ml/min per 1.73 m2), 32 patients with moderately reduced renal function (inulin clearances, 80 to 5 ml/min per 1.73 m2), and 12 patients maintained by hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis because of severely impaired renal function. A single(More)
Radiation dosimetry measurements on angiographer, X-ray technician and patient were performed during 18 femerocerebral angiograms. Lithium fluoride (LiF) thermoluminescent dosimeters were placed on various body areas to measure X-ray exposure. The results of this study indicate that radiation exposure received by medical personnel are well within the(More)
Eleven patients were treated with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) for periods of 2-7 months (48 patient-months). Clinical and biochemical control of uremia was adequate in all patients. Control of hypertension and serum phosphate level was easier than with previous intermittent peritoneal dialysis (IPD). Mean protein loss during CAPD was(More)
The continuous peritoneal lavage aims: mechanical lavage of the abdominal cavity for elimination of spores, endotoxin and inflammatory products, local antibacterial therapy and prevention of kidney insufficiency. The success of continuous peritoneal lavage depends on: 1. the safe and permanent entrance to the peritoneal cavity (Tenckhoff-catheter). 2. the(More)
Junction potentials at the tip of a 0.15 M NaCl- and a 3 M KCl-flowing bridge dependent on the surrounding electrolyte solution were measured and calculated. There was a close correlation between the calculated and measured junction potentials. The magnitude of the calculated and experimentally determined junction potentials at the tip of the 0.15 M(More)
During in vitro experiments using pooled human plasma at 37 degrees C, sisomicin alone showed only a small loss of activity of 12% in 24 hr. Incubation with 80 micrograms/ml mezlocillin did not alter the rate of inactivation. But, after the addition of 300 micrograms/ml mezlocillin to either 5.0 or 2.5 micrograms/ml sisomicin, the sisomicin half-life was(More)
Five patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis were studied to evaluate dietary intake, glucose absorption from the dialysate, and urinary and dialysate nitrogen removal. The study was done on an outpatient basis, while the patients ingested their usual diets and went about their usual activities. The results indicate that patients greatly(More)
