Why Does Blood Pressure Drop during Dialysis

2014-02-19 11:59

Dialysis is a life-extending procedure. While it can relieve the associated complications of kidney failure, the patients often experience a lot of adverse effects. A sudden drop in blood pressure has long vexed many dialysis patients. Why does blood pressure drop during dialysis?

Blood pressure drop during dialysis is attributed to more than one cause. If blood pressure declines too low, the patients may experience nausea, vomiting, and dizziness.

Dialysis is a process in which a machine is used to remove the extra fluid and waste products from body. However, if extra fluid is eliminated from body, it will cause low blood pressure.

Blood pressure drop during dialysis may be due to taking blood pressure medicines before dialysis. Dialysis can eliminate fluid from blood so blood pressure will be lowered. In general, the patients will not be recommended to take blood pressure medicines before dialysis treatment. If blood pressure medicines are taken before the treatment, blood pressure may decline to a low level.

Dizziness, nausea and vomiting commonly occur during dialysis if blood pressure drops. Moreover, the patients who have the most frequent episodes of low blood pressure during dialysis are two times more likely to have a clotted fistula than patients with the fewest episodes.

Apart from low blood pressure, the dialysis patients may also experience many other adverse effects like infection, heart disease and so forth. Therefore, many patients are eager to find an alternative treatment to dialysis.

If the impaired kidney structure can be restored, the native kidneys will return to function better. If so, dialysis will not be required.

Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy can activate the self-repairing of the impaired kidney tissues and cells. Once renal function is improved, dialysis will not be required any longer.
