just wondering if any of you have suggestions for dialyzing normotensive or hypotensive pts?? we have a couple of people that come in severely hypotensive, 80's/50's and usually have about 3 kilos on. we usually end up putting them on Na+ profile and giving them sodium choloride at the beginning of the treatment (which makes them thirsty during/after tx and leads to more wt gain) and still have to give fluids and cut the UFR down. i know this sounds like a bunch of babbling, but I just got off from a 14+hr shift!! any input is greatly appreciated.
