Fluid balance monitoring by cuff-occluded rate of rise of peripheral venous pressure in haemodialysis patients.

Abstract

Cuff-occluded rate of rise of peripheral venous pressure has been proposed to reflect volume changes in experimental studies. The aim of this study was to evaluate changes in cuff-occluded rate of rise of peripheral venous pressure associated with fluid removal by haemodialysis in six adult patients with chronic renal failure on intermittent haemodialysis. Measurements were carried out before and after each haemodialysis session. The volume of fluid removed (indexed to body surface area) linearly correlated with changes in cuff-occluded rate of rise of peripheral venous pressure (r = 0.84; r(2) = 0.70; p = 0.037). Cuff-occluded rate of rise of peripheral venous pressure may be feasible for future clinical monitoring of individual fluid balance.
