Hemodialysis International 2006; 10:241–248 Indiana University School of Medicine and Richard L. Roudebush Veterans Administration Medical Center, The relationship of hypertension with adverse outcomes is uncertain in the hemodialysis population.
If hypertension is an etiologically significant cardiovascular risk factor in hemodialysis patients, thefirst step would be to assess the level of BP accurately. BP obtained at home over a week andaveraged using a validated oscillometric automatic device can prove valuable. To the extent BPlowering influences cardiovascular outcomes, home BP of 150/90mm Hg would warrant therapy,since it correlates with target organ damage and hypertension diagnosed by ambulatory BPmonitoring. To manage hypertension, limiting dietary sodium intake and individualizing dialysatesodium delivery would be first steps. The magnitude of reduction in BP with dietary sodiumrestriction and the whether dialysate sodium can be safely limited in those who are hypotension-prone is unclear. Antihypertensive drug therapies can effectively reduce BP and are needed by thevast majority of hemodialysis patients. Whether control of hypertension translates into betteroutcomes is not known, but collective evidence suggests that hypertension should be controlledin hemodialysis patients.

Predialysis diastolic BP also generally a hemodialysis patient.

The value of each of these techniques has been for both postdialysis systolic (33.1, À 36.3 mmHg) and diastolic BPs (19.3, À 23.9 mmHg). Thus, dialysis unitBP measurements are imprecise estimates of ambulatory BPs.
