Brief Summary:
Hemodialysis patients frequently complain of postdialysis fatigue and washed-out feeling. The aim of this study is to use blood flow rate (BFR) profiling to mitigate postdialysis washed-out state.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hemodialysis-Induced Symptom Other: Blood flow Rate profiling Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Hemodialysis patients who complain of the postdialysis washed-out state were recruited. blood flow rate was altered to be 350 ml/min in the first hour of the session then decreased by 50 ml/min hourly for the 4-hour dialysis session. blood flow rate profiling was continued for 9 dialysis sessions (21 Days). Patients were asked to grade their washed-out state on a scale from 1 (no washed-out state) to 5 (severe washed-out state) before and after blood flow rate profiling. Paired t=-test and Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test were used in appropriate context to compare washed out scale before and after together with urea reduction rate and other blood chemistry tests.
