Predialysis Systolic Blood Pressure Evolution in Incident Hemodialysis Patients: Effects of the Dry Weight Method and Prognostic Value
Blood Purification, 05/10/2012
Chazot C et al. – Hence the dry weight method is efficient in decreasing the predialysis blood pressure (BP) in incident hemodialysis (HD) patients. The initial body weight decrease was correlated with BP decrease at W26 and W52. Early correction of BP by fluid removal erases the reverse epidemiology for BP and influences positively the patient survival.
