Hypotension is one of the complications frequently seen during hemodialysis. The decrease in intravascular volume caused by ultrafiltration plays an important role in its pathogenesis. A transcellular fluid shift from the extracellular to the intracellular compartment may aggravate this depletion. Continuous recording of blood volume during dialysis would be beneficial in detecting hypovolemia at an early stage. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of an electrical conductivity… CONTINUE READING
