Cool dialysate and midodrine have been used successfully to treat intradialytic hypotension (IDH) in the end-stage renal disease population. However, the exact mechanisms by which these interventions improve hemodynamic stability are not well known. We undertook a study to evaluate the effect of these modalities on intradialytic hemodynamics in patients with documented dialysis-associated hypotension. We used the ultrasound dilution technique to measure cardiac output (CO), central blood volume… CONTINUE READING
