Chronic Kidney Disease & Nutrition for Dietetic Educators
Acute Renal Failure
There are two million people with chronic kidney disease CKD worldwide. In Mexico, it is estimated that by , there will be thousand CKD cases. Among the renal replacement treatments, peritoneal dialysis PD exists either in the continuous ambulatory CAPD or automated APD mode, which requires continuous monitoring and strict control. Thus, several software systems have been proposed to perform reliable remote monitoring of patients using PD but also to achieve the goal with effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction; i. However, few studies have addressed usability issues using case studies with patients and medical staff in real domains. In this paper, we present a usability assessment of a telemonitoring system for patients with CKD on peritoneal dialysis treatment through a case study with patients and medical staff of the Mexican Institute of Social Security IMSS. The usability evaluation was carried out through the application of two satisfaction instruments.
Background: Whereas several longitudinal metabolomics studies have been conducted in individuals with normal estimated glomerular filtration rate eGFR at baseline, disease progression among individuals with established chronic kidney disease CKD has not been rigorously examined. To directly assess how the kidney modulates circulating metabolites, we profiled plasma from the aorta and renal vein of 25 hospital-based individuals. Results: At baseline, cases and controls had a mean eGFR of In a cross-sectional analysis, all 6 of the metabolites that were higher in cases than controls were significantly associated with eGFR at baseline. By contrast, threonine, methionine and arginine were lower in cases than in controls and had no association with baseline eGFR.
To summarize, here is our entire Case Study with the Questions and Answers. You are a nurse in a primary care clinic. Your client, Mr.
