Pattern and possible contributing factors to dialysis-associated arrhythmia in young patients
AbstractWe studied dialysis-associated arrhythmia in 48 uraemic patients < 35 years on chronic haemodialysis [HD] [> 3 months]. Holter findings showed only minor arrhythmia; atrial in 42% of patients and ventricular in 38%. ST-segment depression > 1 mm was observed in 58% of patients; 80% had arrhythmia, and 36% experienced anginal pain. HD caused a significant increase in QTc, QTdc and Ca[2+] level, while K[+] level was significantly decreased. Patients who experienced arrhythmia during HD had higher left ventricular mass and left ventricular mass index, lower post-dialysis K+ level, higher QTc and QTdc both before and after HD. They were more frequently hypertensive. ST-segment depression was significantly related to ventricular arrhythmia

Ahmed, A.M.A.; Allam, M.F.; Habil, E.S.; Metwally, A.M.; Ibrahiem, N.A.; Radwan, M.; El Gaafary, M.M.; Gadallah, M.A. (2013)Evidence- and consensus-based clinical practice guidelines for haemodialysis have recently been developed in Egypt. This study aimed to measure compliance with the guidelines in a sample of 16 government hospitals in Cairo and Giza governorates. Each haemodialysis unit was visited to assess the haemodialysis unit and patient care practices for all patients under dialysis at the time of the visit. The mean percentage compliance with haemodialysis guidelines among all study hospitals was 59.3% [SD 11.2%] overall. Within the 5 separate domains, ...
[Programme for improving emotional and cognitive changes in patients under renal dialysis in Egypt] Awadalla, Hala I.; El Ateek, Ahmed M.; Elhammady, Mohamed M.; Kamel, Magda A. (2008)We investigated the effect of chronic renal failure on the emotional status, social and psychological adaptation and the cognitive status of patients and the effect of a programme to improve the psychosocial state of the patients; 40 renal dialysis patients and 40 healthy controls were included. We used the Emotional Status Scale, Psychosocial Adaptation Scale, the Primary Mental Abilities Test and the Memory Processes Scale for assessment of the participants. The controls had better emotional/ cognitive status and psychosocial adaptation than ...
