Firstly, low blood pressure. When patients systolic pressure declines by more than 20mmHg or mean arterial pressure declines by more than 10mmHg, along with low blood pressure symptoms, which shows patients suffer low blood pressure in dialysis. Here are some methods to deal with it. One, taking head-down; Two, stopping ultrafiltration; Three, supplying 100ml normal saline or albumin solution; Four, supplying normal saline again if blood pressure doesn’t recover, or applying drugs that rising blood pressure if blood pressure declines rapidly!
Secondly, nausea and vomiting. The reason of it can be low blood pressure, imbalance syndrome etc. Thus, treatment contains three parts, namely taking urgent treatment for patients whose pathogen is low blood pressure; adopting asymptomatic treatment on the basis of pathogen, like applying antemetic; strengthening observation and nursing , so that avoid aspiration.
