  15. 15. Complications that occur during Hemodialysis session. <ul><li>Common complications </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hypotension </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Muscle cramps </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Nausea and vomiting </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Headache </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Chest and back pain </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Febrile reactions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>First-use syndromes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pruritis </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Uncommon but serious complications </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Disequilibrium syndrome </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dialyzer reactions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Arrhythmias </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cardiac tamponade </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Intracranial bleeding </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Seizures </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hemolysis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Air embolism </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dialysis associated neutropenia & compliment activation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hypoxemia. </li></ul></ul>
  16. 16. Frequency of common complications <ul><li>Hypotension = 20 – 30 % </li></ul><ul><li>Muscle cramps = 5 – 20 % </li></ul><ul><li>Nausea & vomiting = 5 – 15 % </li></ul><ul><li>Headache = 5% </li></ul><ul><li>Chest pain = 2 – 5 % </li></ul><ul><li>Back pain = 2 – 5 % </li></ul><ul><li>Febrile reactions = <1 % </li></ul><ul><li>Itching = 5% </li></ul><ul><li>Fever and Chills = < 1 % </li></ul><ul><li>Cardiopulmonary arrest = < 1 % </li></ul>
  17. 17. Causes of Hypotension during HD <ul><li>Common causes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1. Related to excessive decrease </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>in blood volume </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Fluctuation in U/F rates </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>High U/F rate </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Target dry weight set too low. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2. Related to lack of vasoconstriction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Acetate-containing dialysis solution. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Relatively warm dialysis solution. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Food ingestion </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Tissue ischemia </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Autonomic neuropathy </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Anti hypertensive medicine </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>3 . Related to cardiac factors </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cardiac output unusually dependent on cardiac filling: diastolic dysfunction due to LVH, IHD, or other conditions. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Failure to increase cardiac rate </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ingestion of beta blockers </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Uremic autonomic neuropathy </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Aging </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Inability to increase cardiac output for other reasons: poor myocardial contractility due to age, hypertension, atherosclerosis, myocardial calcification, valve disease, amyloidosis, etc </li></ul></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>Uncommon causes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pericardial tamponade. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Myocardial infarction. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Occult hemorrhage. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Septicemia. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Arrhythmia. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dialyzer reaction. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hemolysis. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Air embolism. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Infections (severe & serious). </li></ul></ul>
  19. 19. Common causes of hypotension <ul><li>Excessive or rapid decrease in the blood volume. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Failure to use U/F controller </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Large intra-dialytic weight gain or short treatment. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Excessive U/F below the pt’s “dry weight”. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Lack of vasoconstriction. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use of acetate-containing dialysis solution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dialysis pt’s are often slightly hypothermic. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Food ingestion. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tissue ischemia. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Autonomic neuropathy. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Antihypertensive medication. </li></ul></ul>
  20. 20. Detection of hypotension <ul><li>Most patients will complain of feeling dizzy, light headedness, or nauseated when hypotension occurs. </li></ul><ul><li>Some experience muscle cramps. </li></ul><ul><li>Some times no symptoms whatsoever until the BP falls to extremely low (and dangerous ) levels. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Management of hypotension <ul><li>Fluid administration </li></ul><ul><li>Slowing the blood flow rate </li></ul><ul><ul><li>There are 2 potential reasons to lower the blood flow rate: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>When U/F controller is not used, slowing the blood flow rate makes it easier to limit the amount of UF. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>At very rapid blood flow rates and at a low cardiac out put, there may be a “steal” effect by the extracorporeal circuit, with diversion of blood from systemic tissue beds. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  22. 22. Prevention of hypotension <ul><li>Use machine with U/F controller when ever possible. </li></ul><ul><li>Counsel patient to limit weight gain to < 1kg/day. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not ultra filter a patient to below dry weight. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep dialysis solution Na+ level at or above the plasma level. </li></ul><ul><li>Give daily dose of anti-hypertensive after, not before, dialysis. </li></ul><ul><li>Use Bicarb-containing dialysis solution when high blood flow rate or high-efficiency dialyzers are used. </li></ul><ul><li>In selected patients, try lowering the dialysis solution when tempreture to 34-36 oC. </li></ul><ul><li>Ensure that HCT is > 25-30% pre-dialysis. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not give food or glucose orally during dialysis to hypotensive-prone patients. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Muscle cramps <ul><li>Pathogenesis of muscle cramps during dialysis is unknown. </li></ul><ul><li>3 most important predisposing factors: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hypotension </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The patient being below dry weight. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use of Na+poor dialysis solution. </li></ul></ul>
  24. 24. Management of cramps <ul><li>For cramps with hypotension </li></ul><ul><ul><li>N/S 0.9% is the best on which patient responds quickly. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In isolated cramps & acute status </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hypertonic solutions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Hypertonic saline </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dextrose 50%. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>I V slowly calcium gluconate 10 to 20 ml specially in hypocalcaemic patients. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  25. 25. ANSWER is Now obvious. <ul><li>This Pt. was having Acute Severe Hypotension with muscle cramps. </li></ul><ul><li>Dizziness + Light headedness + Nausea </li></ul><ul><li>+ Sweating + & generally he was about to collapse because of sudden drop in BP. </li></ul><ul><li>Due to removal of fluid more then his dry weight as patient was young so he was tolerating up to dangerous level of low BP without any complain. </li></ul><ul><li>Due to good response of vascular system, the fluid shift from extra-vascular compartment to vascular compartment was taking place because of good vascular compliance. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Management of this case <ul><li>We managed with: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Trendelenburg position.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I.V bolus of NS 0.9% 200+300ml over 15 min. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Stopped U/F. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce Blood Flow pump from 300 to 250 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Oxygen given 6 litters. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hypertonic solution Dextrose 50% given. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dialysate Na+ increased to 138. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Temperature decreased to 34.5C. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Observation vitals. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Investigations: Such as ECG + CXR + Hct+ biochemistry. </li></ul></ul>
  27. 27. Follow up <ul><li>During all above measures patient became stable after 15 minutes his vitals were with in normal limits. </li></ul><ul><li>We monitored rest of time, HD continued with altering the prescription. </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of HD he was alright & left AKU ambulatory. </li></ul><ul><li>He came again for his scheduled next HD after a day. </li></ul><ul><li>While Going Home He said  </li></ul>
