The aim of this study was to determine the level of engagement with medication among kidney transplant recipients in South Africa. A descriptive cross-sectional study design with random sampling was used. Data were collected through structured face-to-face interviews. Total engagement with medication scores among kidney transplant recipients ranged from 60% to 100%, with a mean score of 80%. Although over half of the participants (55%) scored above the mean, only 19% had high levels of engagement with medication...

Fluid restriction is a major lifestyle change for patients with end stage renal disease who are on hemodialysis. Educating patients about fluid management supports self-management of their prescribed fluid restrictions. Using a pre-test/post-test design, this project aimed to educate 17 patients on chronic hemodialysis about the management of fluid restrictions for improved renal fluid adherence. Post-intervention assessments revealed increased knowledge of hemodialysis treatment and improved renal fluid adherence...

A retrospective study was performed to evaluate predictors and outcomes of acute kidney injury (AKI) post-cardiac surgery based on the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) criteria. The incidence of AKI post-cardiac surgery was 30.3% for AKI Stage 1, 7.1% for AKI Stage 2, and 7.9% for AKI Stage 3. Smoking history, postoperative acute respiratory failure, and postoperative blood transfusion were predictors of all AKI stages. Hypertension, cardiopulmonary bypass, and postoperative coma/encephalopathy were predictors of higher AKI stages...

Dietary recommendations that potentially delay the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) can be perceived as restrictive and unpalatable, negatively impacting quality of life (QOL). This pilot study examined the effect of a six-week small group intervention, "Self-Management of Dietary Intake Using Mindful Eating," on QOL, health literacy, and dietary self-efficacy among persons with CKD Stages 1-3. Improvements (n=19) were found from pre-test to post-test in total scores for Kidney Disease Quality of Life Short Form-36 (p=0...

Intradialytic events (IDEs), such as cramping, loss of consciousness, bleeding, and allergic reactions, are major stressors for persons on hemodialysis (HD). This study examined the association between coping strategies and stress associated with HD in persons who have experienced an IDE. Using a cross-sectional correlation design, a convenience sample of patients (N=73) completed a Hemodialysis Demographic Form, Ways of Coping Questionnaire, and a Hemodialysis Stress Visual Analog Scale. Most participants were African American (95%), male (52%), with a mean age of 57 (SD=11...

This study evaluated 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) monitoring in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) who had a normal casual blood pressure (CBP) of less than 140/90 mmHg. A total of 350 patients with CKD (Stages 1-5) and a normal CBP were included, and 24-hour ABPs were monitored. Of these patients, 147 patients (42.0%) exhibited increased mean ABP; 69 patients (19.7%) exhibited masked hypertension; 199 patients (56.9%) exhibited an abnormal BP mode (circadian rhythm disappearing); and 204 patients (58...

The genome is insufficient for understanding chronic health conditions, such as kidney disease. Only a small portion of chronic disease incidence can be attributed to genetic causes, and the field of exposomics provides an opportunity to explore the impact of environmental exposures on kidney disease. The environment plays a significant role in lifestyle choices and the stressors or exposures the body encounters throughout life. Exposures influence genetic expression, thereby impacting health and wellbeing of individuals exposed...

End stage renal disease (ESRD) affects African Americans more than any other ethnic group. Adherence is a challenge. Patients with ESRD must adhere to medication, diet, fluid restrictions, and dialysis treatment schedules if they do not receive a kidney transplant. The purpose of this exploratory, descriptive study was to assess adherence in 120 African Americans with ESRD undergoing hemodialysis (HD). Participants completed a demographic questionnaire and the ESRD Adherence Questionnaire (ESRD-AQ). Biomarkers were collected from medical records...

For youth with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and their families, shifting from pediatric to adult systems of renal care can be challenging. This study explored the transitional process experienced by youth with CKD and their families, including perceived facilitators and barriers to effective transition. Qualitative interviews were conducted with youth with CKD (n=28) and their parents (n=28). Ambiguity regarding healthcare provider roles within the adult system was frequently reported. Themes reflected parental challenge relinquishing care responsibility, synergistic and divergent expectations between youth and parents, tensions in youth self-care readiness, desired healthcare provider roles in transition preparedness, and system considerations in transition...

This evidence-based quality initiative project was designed to increase advance care planning and palliative care referrals, thus improving quality of life for patients with chronic kidney disease by increasing nephrology providers' knowledge of the Renal Physicians Association guidelines on "Shared Decision Making in the Appropriate Initiation of and Withdrawal from Dialysis." Thirteen nephrology providers and nurses received the educational intervention. Post-intervention outcomes included four renal palliative care referrals and 21 advance care plans over four months from a baseline of zero/unknown...

There is a gap in the research literature regarding advance care planning with this population of patients. This article reports on a study about the end-of-life knowledge, needs, and preferences of patients on hemodialysis - as reported by patients - within a hospital or community-based setting that addresses this gap. Data were collected using a survey method; non-probability, consecutive sampling (n=133) resulted in a high response rate of 64.0%. There were three key findings: 1) patients do not identify themselves as having a progressive health condition, 2) patients are comfortable discussing end-of-life issues, and 3) patients want discussions about end-of-life care when they request to do so or when their health worsens...

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) metric for reporting ultrafiltration (UF) recommends limiting UF at a range of 10 to 13 mL/Kg/Hr to avoid organ stunning. All organ stunning has an impact on patient quality of life (QoL). As this new standard of UF is implemented, the interdisciplinary team (IDT) and the patient must work together toward achieving a less than 13 mL/Kg/Hr UF buy-in. Understanding the CMS goals and target date of January 1, 2018, for data collection purposes was key to early initiation of staff and patient education...

Hemodialysis (HD) has a significant impact on health-related quality of life (HRQoL). We performed an observational study to assess the mental and physical status of 41 patients on chronic HD treatment. We planned and launched a program of recreational and therapeutic intradialysis activities to reduce patients' boredom due to inactivity. Patients' mental and physical status was reassessed at 12 months. Our initial attempt to introduce these recreational activities as intradialysis therapy has been rated positively by all patients...

This study was conducted to identify the effect of elastic compression stockings on hypotension in patients with intradialytic hypotension. Subjects of this study were 59 patients (29 in the experimental group, 30 in the control group). Elastic compression stockings were applied to patients in the experimental group during hemodialysis. To evaluate effects of treatment, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, pulse rate, and hypotension symptom scores were measured. Results indicated the decrease in systolic blood pressure in the experimental group was less than that in the control group...
