This week has been a landmark in the progress of our iTrend and DIAMONDS projects. We have commenced a 150 patient study in the renal unit at Royal Derby Hospital. The patient study captures continuous physiological measurements from patients receiving typically 4-hour dialysis treatment. The study supports the DIAMONDS Dialysis Monitoring for decision support project […]Read More
Noninvasive continuous intradialytic blood pressure monitoring: the key to improving haemodynamic stability
Abstract Intradialytic hypotension (IDH) occurs in 20% of haemodialysis treatments, leading to end-organ ischaemia, increased morbidity and mortality; and contributing to poor quality of life for patients. Treatment of IDH is reactive since brachial blood pressure (BP) is recorded only intermittently during haemodialysis, making early detection and prediction of hypotension impossible. Noninvasive continuous BP monitoring […]Read More
Health monitoring tech developed on iTrend project being deployed on new Kidney Research U.K. project.
Continuous non-invasive blood pressure monitoring technology developed by University of Derby and University of Nottingham researchers on the iTrend Intelligent Technologies for Renal Dialysis project is now being deployed on the DIAMONDS Dialysis Monitoring for Decision Support project. The Stoneygate Research Award project funded by Kidney Research U.K. will use continuous blood pressure monitoring data […]Read More
