A computer model of pressure response to hemodialysis-induced hypovolemia is reported. Heart rate and hematocrit, measured in the course of hemodialysis, are imposed as computer model inputs and the model computes the arterial pressure response after tuning model parameters representative of patient's cardiovascular reactivity. Computer model reproduced(More)
Acute hypotension is a frequent complication of hemodialysis. Blood oxygenation may play a role in hypotension and hypoxemia may be considered as a surrogate marker of hemodynamic instability. Continuous, non-invasive monitoring of oxygen saturation (SO 2) during hemodialysis is now possible, by means of sensors measuring SO 2 in blood entering the(More)
