Abstract

To assist in the management of hypotensive episodes during dialysis the authors have used a microprocessor-based interface to link a hemodialysis delivery system with a blood pressure monitoring device. The system monitors vital signs. When values are beyond the established limits, the system will notify the staff of changing conditions and will take corrective action by altering ultrafiltration pressure, blood flow, and dialysate sodium concentration. The system is found to better control hemodialysis-related hypotensive episodes independent of patient symptoms and staffing.
