The mechanisms and consequences of haemodialysis induced acute cardiac injury
Burton, James O. (2009) The mechanisms and consequences of haemodialysis induced acute cardiac injury. DM thesis, University of Nottingham.
Patients on dialysis are subject to a hugely elevated risk of cardiovascular mortality. Incidence and prevalence of, and mortality and morbidity from heart failure is significantly higher in the haemodialysis population than the general population as a whole. This thesis describes research work focusing on the large scale haemodynamic changes that occur during haemodialysis and how they may negatively impact on the cardiovascular system.
