Brief Summary:
Arm vein intermittently gripping arm movements, can promote the increased diameter of arteriovenous fistula, which enhance the maturity of fistula, the effect of lack of empirical research. Objective: this study, randomized controlled study, investigate systematic random arm vein pressure and arm movements to arteriovenous fistula in hemodialysis patients improve the maturity rate and effectiveness of the diameter. Methods: a prospective comparative study randomly assigned.

Systematically Intermittent Arm Exercise for Improving Maturation of Hemodialysis Arteriovenous Shunt Other: Systematically intermittent arm exercise Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
the effect size is the diameter of arteriovenous fistula in hemodialysis patients with treatments or not is the key to smoothly. Arm vein intermittently gripping arm movements, can promote the increased diameter of arteriovenous fistula, which enhance the maturity of fistula, the effect of lack of empirical research. Objective: this study, randomized controlled study, investigate systematic random arm vein pressure and arm movements to arteriovenous fistula in hemodialysis patients improve the maturity rate and effectiveness of the diameter. Methods: a prospective comparative study randomly assigned. This study plan for each patient has received a wrist artery and vein access tracks before and after 3 months of operation, according to randomly divided into three groups, the first group of patients after accepted guidance for systematic and intermittent arm movements; the second group of patients receiving the guidance system of intermittent arm vein compression and arm movements; a third group as a control group. Discussion: the plan is expected to include 150 patients, receive instruction after the randomly with/without systemic venous pressure, with/without systemic movement. The plan design under the patient safety assessment of the effectiveness of these two activities the primary end point and secondary end points. This study offers clinicians advise patients, how to effectively improve the patients ' arteriovenous access matured speed and diameter.

Arm Intervention/treatment
arm movement more than a total of at least 30 minutes a day
Using the provided rubber ball grip the ball movement on a daily basis, and grip the ball at a time 3-5 seconds, every 5 minutes, daily at least 6 rounds (for example, according to the daily morning, noon and night-time sports training in the two groups), to reach an arm movement more than a total of at least 30 minutes a day
Other: Systematically intermittent arm exercise
While holding a rubber ball for 5 minutes a day, together with strappy elastic compression arm veinElastic bandages defined for using this research provides of standard bandages, according to research personnel Guide, reached hand elbow near heart end 4 (2~6) cm at of arm local pressure strong 50 mm-Hg (+/-10 mm-Hg) (about equivalent to provides pressure strong 6.67 thousand PA (kPa), also about equivalent to 0.97 PSI (pound per square inch)), to reached 5 minutes arm movement Shi short reduced vein return, promotion pathway vein extended of effect
Other Name: Systematically intermittent arm exercise with local pressure

arm movement and local press strength 50 mmHg at the upper arm
Using the provided rubber ball grip the ball movement on a daily basis, and grip the ball at a time 3-5 seconds, every 5 minutes, daily at least 6 rounds (for example, according to the daily morning, noon and night-time sports training in the two groups), to reach an arm movement more than a total of at least 30 minutes a day with Elbow proximal 4 (2~6) local press strength 50 mmHg at the upper arm
Other: Systematically intermittent arm exercise
While holding a rubber ball for 5 minutes a day, together with strappy elastic compression arm veinElastic bandages defined for using this research provides of standard bandages, according to research personnel Guide, reached hand elbow near heart end 4 (2~6) cm at of arm local pressure strong 50 mm-Hg (+/-10 mm-Hg) (about equivalent to provides pressure strong 6.67 thousand PA (kPa), also about equivalent to 0.97 PSI (pound per square inch)), to reached 5 minutes arm movement Shi short reduced vein return, promotion pathway vein extended of effect
Other Name: Systematically intermittent arm exercise with local pressure




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The diameter of each passage of the passage vein (forearm head vein) of the arterial and venous access within three months [ Time Frame: Postoperative Three months ]
    Comparison of the various methods to achieve within three months the checkpoint path diameter increase rate (two time points measurement difference).
