I am having problems finding nursing research articles on the following subject: Dialysis Patients Emergency Room complaints continued below

How to handle dialysis patients presenting to the Emergency Room. Major reasons why Dialysis patients are sent to the Emergency Room. I don't think I am wording the subject right, but I am doing a capstone project on 'How to care for multiple problems Dialysis Patients present with in the Emergency Room'. Thanks for any assistance.

I would recommend starting with the EBSCO databases CINAHL, Health Source Nursing, Health Source Consumer, and MedLine.  Try a general search to start out - something like:


dialysis AND emergency room* AND (admit* OR present*) which gives 41 results or


(TI dialysis) AND (TI admit* OR TI present*) which gives you 145.


If you don’t have time to use interlibrary loan, limit to full text using the ‘refine your results’ controls on the left side of the screen.  That reduces the results to 5 and 10, respectively, however.


Some of the articles that sound interesting include Automated peritoneal dialysis as a lifesaving therapy in an emergency room: report of four cases” and “Past, present, and future of quantified peritoneal dialysis


You can also add or remove keywords to get more or less results (for instance, just using dialysis AND emergency room* gets 79 hits).  And if you don’t find enough here, try similar searches in ProQuest Health and Medicine and Journals@OVID.  We have a LibGuide listing all nursing resources online here, as well.


Let me know if I can be of any further help.

    Updates to Database Access

    Database Updates:

    Problem Accessing Fulltext in the ERIC Database


    From their website:


    Dear ERIC Community,

    In early August we discovered that sensitive personally identifiable information appeared in some full text documents contained in the ERIC collection. Specifically, social security numbers and other highly sensitive information were found in multiple documents and in a way that could not easily be isolated. For that reason, we had to temporarily disable access to many full text documents.

    Although these documents had been publicly available in microfiche for many years, the advent of Internet search engines has made it easier to find this information. Our number one concern is to ensure that any full-text documents we provide do not violate any individual's privacy. We believe that if any of us were to have our privacy compromised by an ERIC document, we would want the same consideration.

    We are seeking to restore access to documents as soon as possible. In order to restore access to ERIC, we have to check every document to see if it contains personally identifiable information. Due to the quality of many of the documents, a large portion of the search has to be done by hand. This is a large undertaking and we are in the process of hiring a team to help restore access in a fast and responsive manner. We hope to get this team in place by late September and releasing large numbers of ERIC documents by the end of October. We will continue to release documents after that point on a rolling basis.

    To minimize the burden on our users, we will prioritize searching the documents that users request. If you would like to request a PDF to be returned online, please email with the record number (such as ED263102). Documents will be returned on a rolling basis and may take several weeks, but we are working as fast as possible.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience and want to thank you for bearing with us through this unexpected delay.
