A Feasibility Study of Non-Invasive Continuous Estimation of Brachial Pressure Derived From Arterial and Venous Lines During Dialysis

ABSTRACT Objective: Intradialytic haemodynamic instability is a significant clinical problem, leading to end-organ ischaemia and contributing to morbidity and mortality in haemodialysis patients. Non-invasive continuous blood pressure monitoring is not currently part of routine practice but may aid detection and prevention of significant falls in blood pressure during dialysis. Brachial blood pressure is currently recorded […]
