FIFO and LIFO are methods used in the cost of goods sold calculation FIFO ("First-In First-Out") assumes that the oldest products in a company's inventory have been sold first and goes by those production costs The LIFO ("Last-In First-Out") method assumes that the most recent products in a company's inventory have been sold first and uses those costs instead


Differences (discrete data) Means (continuous data) Indirect comparison meta-analysis methods (also called network meta-analyses in particular when multiple treatments are assessed simultaneously) generally use two main methodologies First is the Bucher method which is a single or repeated comparison of a closed loop of three-treatments such that one of them is common to the two studies

Peritoneal Dialysis–Related Infection Rates and Outcomes

Peritoneal dialysis (PD)-related peritonitis carries high morbidity for PD patients Understanding the characteristics and risk factors for peritonitis can guide regional development of prevention strategies We describe peritonitis rates and the associations of selected facility practices with peritonitis risk among countries participating in the Peritoneal Dialysis Outcomes and Practice

Longitudinal comparison of dialysis access methods: Risk

Longitudinal comparison of dialysis access methods: especially in patients who have multiple failed grafts Lastly comparing patency data for the various methods of dialysis access is useful but reporting methods can dramatically alter the apparent results Standard definitions of "failure" and "patency" are needed and statistical reporting standards must be developed to make

differences in acute kidney injury requiring dialysis

Methods: We utilized the Hospital Episode Statistics database to calculate the -stratified incidence of AKI requiring renal replacement therapy (AKI-D) among 194 157 726 hospital discharges reported for the years 1998-2013 In addition we conducted a systematic review of the English literature to evaluate dialysis practices among men versus women with AKI Results: Hospitalized men were

Determination of Glucose Levels during Dialysis

The measurement of glycemia in subjects with renal failure thus treated with hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis is clinically relevant since glucose levels may influence the determination of other solutes such as creatinine as well as some ions such as sodium whose degree of removal during dialysis sessions should be controlled carefully

Understanding dialysis

Understanding dialysis What is dialysis and how does dialysis work? What is dialysis? Dialysis largely replicates the functions of the kidneys in patients with chronic kidney failure Hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis TongWei over the key tasks of the kidneys removing waste materials toxins excess salt and fluids from the body Dialysis treatment does not entirely replace all the functions


standards the BCPRA HD Committee has identified the preferred form of HD vascular access as the native arteriovenous fistula (AVF) followed by the artificial arteriovenous graft (AVG) and lastly the central venous catheter (CVC) Despite all best efforts for patients undergoing HD to have an AVF (preferred) or AVG (2nd choice) there will always be patients that receive HD by CVC on a
