BACKGROUND/AIMS Fluid overload is an important factor causing cardiovascular complications in dialysis patients. We compared fluid status, blood pressure (BP) and heart function between peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients and hemodialysis (HD) patients. METHODS We recruited 94 PD and 75 HD patients in our hospital. Fluid status was assessed by bioimpedance spectroscopy. Home BP was recorded. Use of antihypertensives was retrieved by chart review. In each group, 39 patients received… CONTINUE READING
