Patients Blame Granuflo for Heart Attacks
Posted in the Kidney Failure Forum
#1 Jun 24, 2013
Dialysis treatment is used when a patient's kidney fails. This treatment involves the mixing of three components in a dialyser: dialysates, sodium bicarbonate, and purified water. When the components are not combined properly, bicarbonate overdose may occur. This may lead to serious complications, such as heart attack.
Moreover, high levels of bicarbonate in the bloodstream may result in metabolic alkalosis, a metabolic state in which the pH of tissue is raised way above normal. This medical condition can potentially result in the following complications:
* Cardiac Arrhythmias
* Hypopotassemia This is a medical condition that occurs when the potassium level in the blood is low. This condition may cause serious heart arrhythmias, particularly in patients who have a history of heart problems.
* Hypoxaemia This is a medical condition in which oxygen concentration within the blood is lower than normal, causing respiratory problems.
If you want to know more about Granuflo and related injuries, there is an article that I bumped into at http://spurse.org/wiki/index.php... that may be of great help to you.
