Intradialytic hypotension is the most common complication of haemodialysis (HD). This study on the effect of profiled hemodialysis on intradialytic hypotension(IDH) and related symptoms,nursing interventions during dialysis. Evaluated intradialytic hypotension related symptoms included muscle cramps, dizziness, headache,nausea and vomitting. Evaluated nursing interventions included saline infusion,decrease or stop ultrafiltration(UF) and session failure.


Intradialytic hypotesion, sodium profiles, ultrafiltration profiles.
