Comparison of stroke volume measurements during hemodialysis using bioimpedance cardiography and echocardiography.
Hemodialysis International. 10 August 2017. DOI:10.1111/hdi.12589
Fluid management remains a major challenge of hemodialysis (HD) care, with serious implications for morbidity and mortality.
Intradialytic fluid management is typically guided by blood pressure, an indirect resultant of hemodynamics status.
Direct measurements of hemodynamic parameters may improve cardiovascular outcomes by providing rational bases for intervention.
We compare stroke volume (SV) measurements using a noninvasive, regional biompedance cardiography device (NiCaS) with Doppler echocardiography (Echo) in HD setting.
