pulse wave analysis during hemo-dialysis

Hemodialysis volume control based on arterial stiffness and central hemodynamics:
Non invasive pulse wave analysis and central hemodynamics during hemodialysis

The vascular structure of patients with end-stage renal failure undergoing chronic haemodialytic treatment differs from the structure of other hypertensive individuals due to hyperparathyroidism, calcium and volume overload, severe hypertension, uraemia and renal anaemia. The often required high ultrafiltration rate caused by the increased interdialytic weight gain is associated with haemodynamic events such as symptomatic hypotension, cramp and also higher mortality compared to patients with well controlled fluid intake. A more detailed monitoring of haemodynamic parameters during the haemodialysis session may provide an individual and more adequate hemodialysis regimen especially at respect to the ultrafiltration rate.
