Hi, have a question for all you renal nurses re: your sodium profile use. We have the Fresenius K machines and they have programed Na profiles in the machine. The favored one in our unit is the linear starting at a Na level of 150 and dropping to 135 over the course of the treatment. The question arises - do we need to stop the Na profile with 1/2 hour remaining or is the gradual decline in Na level to 135 sufficient. Also, does anyone have any other profiles or suggestions to assist us with unfortunately high fluid gains interdialytically. We do not have alot of spare time and can't allow patients extra treatment time to remove fluid and have resorted to the Na pull to assist with this removal. What are your thoughts/suggestions.
