Abstract

To assess the effect of haemodialysis practice guidelines on dialysis indicators and haemodynamic complications, the comparative study was conducted at the dialysis unit of Sheikh Zayed Hospital, Lahore, Pakistan, and comprised patients undergoing haemodialysis who were divided into intervention group A in which updated haemodialysis practice guidelines were used, and control group B in which routine base dialysis was given.  Data was collected using a self-structured tool. Data was analysed using McNemar test and Mann-Whitney U-test with p<0.05. Compared to baseline, there was a significant improvement in post-intervention ratio of effective removal of clearance (K) resulting from the treatment characterised by time (t) in the patient with a specific volume of distribution (V), or Kt/V, median & IQR 0.83(0.355) vs 1.21(0.11) and percentage of urea reduction ratio with median & IQR 49(12) vs. 66.5(18.65) (p<0.05).
