Goal
To provide an overview of the physiological importance of rapid blood pressure decrease during hemodialysis, and the pathological consequences of repeated asymptomatic and symptomatic hypoperfusive episodes.

Objectives:

  1. Define intradialytic hypotension (IDH).
  2. Discuss the challenges IDH poses to patients and nephrology clinicians in hemodialysis settings.
  3. Describe the use of an algorithmic intervention pathway that considers mean arterial pressure (MAP) as the blood pressure metric to reduce IDH in patients on hemodialysis.
