The newest episode of the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN) is hosted by Nazem Akoum, MD, MS, FACC, FHRS. He discusses the recent article he and his colleagues published in CJASN, entitled: “Rates of Cardiac Rhythm Abnormalities in Patients with CKD and Diabetes”.

The purpose of the experiment was to study the occurrence of arrhythmias in a population of diabetic patients with moderate to severe kidney disease. A similar study has been conducted in the past, but with completed with patients with ESRD and on hemodialysis, whereas this study’s participants have CKD and are not on hemodialysis.
