Hemodialysis (HD)-induced hypotension may be precipitated by severe hypovolemia. To avoid the appearance of destabilizing hypovolemias, we have developed a biofeedback control system for intradialytic blood volume (BV)-changes modeling. The system, incorporated in a dialysis machine, is based on a multivariable closed-loop control with a dependent output variable, the BV changes, and two independent control variables, the ultrafiltration rate (Qf) and dialysate conductivity (DC). The relative… CONTINUE READING
