AIM The relation of ambient temperature (AMT) and relative humidity to systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), body weight (BW), and body weight gain between dialysis sessions (DeltaBW) was examined in hemodialysis patients by Fourier analysis. METHODS AND RESULTS The authors recruited 144 dialysis patients from a hemodialysis center in Okinawa, Japan where there is distinct seasonal variation in monthly AMT but a constant intradiurnal temperature change throughout the… CONTINUE READING
