Table 1 Conduction and data of dialysis sessions

From: Pulmonary artery pressure as a method for assessing hydration status in an anuric hemodialysis patient – a case report

  Data Remarks
Conduction PAP/MAP PAP-readings made at intervals:
- Before beginning of dialysis
- After 15 min of dialysis
- Once every 30 min from that point
- At the end of dialysis
- 15 min after ended dialysis
MAP measured at the same intervals
Mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) and mean systemic artery pressure (MAP) is used for discussion in this case report
Dialysis data Session 1 Mean UF-rate: 743 ml/hr
UF-volume: 2590 ml
Hemoglobin: 6.0 mmol/L
Abumin: 35 g/L
Urea: 24.4 mmol/L
Creatinine: 204 μmol/L
Alkaline phosphatase: 115 U/L
Pro-BNP: 1120 pmol/L
A total of one PAP reading has been omitted due to a technical error
Blood samples planned for session 1, 4, 7, 10.
Session 2 Mean UF-rate: 800 ml/hr
UF-volume: 2770 ml
Session 3 Mean UF-rate: 524 ml/hr
UF volume: 1600 ml
Final post-dialytic reading has not been obtained due to patient’s compliance, as he was not admitted and wished to leave the hospital
Two events of systemic hypotension occurred, that lead the nurse to pause the ultrafiltration. They are marked by arrows in Fig. 1
Patient related data Clinical estimated dry weight: 86 kg
Endpoint: The patient died after 3 dialysis sessions were conducted
