Intradialysis hypertension is a frustrating complication among hemodialysis (HD) patients. This study was conducted to investigate the physiological changes during intradialytic hypertension. The beat-to-beat continuous heart rate, hematocrit (Hct) changes during HD, serum levels of nitric oxide, plasma levels of catecholamine, renin, endothelin (ET-1), cardiac output (CO), and peripheral vascular resistance (PVR) were measured before and after HD in patients prone to develop intradialysis… CONTINUE READING
