Abstract

Hypoglycemia (HG) has been demonstrated during chronic hemodialysis (HD). These events may become more frequent with the current use of glucose-free bicarbonate dialysis solution, the standard formula in most dialysis units in our hospitals. The Aim of study is to evaluate the occurrence of HG in non-diabetic (NDM) end-stage renal failure patients during HD using dialytic solution without glucose. In Merjan teaching hospital from January to September 2013. A hospital-based cross-sectional study design has been carried out on fifty non-diabetic patients with chronic renal failure randomly selected from the dialysis unit of Merjan Teaching Hospital after their setting for HD session of the glucose- free bicarbonate solution. Serum glucose has been measured at zero hour before dialysis session and 30 minutes after dialysis session. The study duration was from January to September 2013 Categorical variables were presented as frequencies and percentages. Continuous variables were presented as means with their 95% confidence interval (CI) and standard deviation. The Pearson's chi-square test (x2) was used to determine the associations between categorical variables. Independent sample t-test was used to compare between two means. A p-value of < 0.05 was considered as statistically significant.Data were expressed No patient presented any clinical evidence of HG.40 patients(74.8%) of fifty patients express serum sugar levels changes before and after HD ,serum sugar levels after HD was <80mg/dl ,which is statistically significant P value <0.01.Asymptomatic HG was frequent during HD when glucose-free dialysis solution was used. Glucose added dialysis solution at 90 mg/dl significantly reduced the number and severity of HG episodes and although it caused higher mean glycaemia in DM patients during HD, its use seems advisable in all patients.

Abstract

Background:Hypotension is one of the complications of hemodialysis treatment. It increases morbidity and mortality and can compromise the dialysis efficacy. Cooling the dialysate below 36.5°C is an important factor that contributes to hemodynamic stability in patients during hemodialysis.Objective:To assess the effect of dialysate temperature on hemodynamic stability during hemodialysis sessions, post dialysis fatigue and the adequacy of dialysis.Methods:A total of 40 patients were assessed during six dialysis sessions; in three sessions, the dialysate temperature was (37 °C) and in three other sessions, the dialysate temperature was (35 °C). Specific scale questionnaires were used in each dialysis session, to evaluate the symptoms during the dialysis procedure as well as post-dialysis fatigue, and respective scores were noted. Blood pressure, heart rate, temperature were recorded. Also dialysis efficacy using Kt/v, urea reduction ratio were measured.Results:The results showed that usage of low dialysate temperature was associated with the following : higher post dialysis systolic blood pressure (P < 0.05) and lower post dialysis heart rate (P < 0.05), better intra-dialysis symptoms score and post-dialysis fatigue scores (P < 0.05 and P < 0.05, respectively), shorter post-dialysis fatigue period (P < 0.05) as well as Similar urea removal and Kt/V .Conclusion:Cool dialysis is an important factor in hemodynamic stability during hemodialysis. Also it improves symptoms during and after hemodialysis. Cool dialysis has no effect on adequacy of dialysis.Key words:Hemodialysis, Cool dialysate, Hypotension, Hemodynamic
