Even though I'm a new nurse let alone new to dialysis, my manager, charge nurse, and fellow staff RNs have all stressed turning off the UF when the pt is in distress whether it be cramping or low BPs. Why continue stressing the body and heart on pulling more fluid if the BP is too low or the HR is too high? I'm still trying to learn what my pts can tolerate...41 a day is stressful :(
