Pre-dialysis assessment part 2

Haemodialysis 5

 

Pre-dialysis observations will be performed and recorded:

  • Seated blood pressure. Ensure seated for at least 5 minutes and correct cuff size.
  • Pulse rate
  • Temperature
  • Respiratory rate

Patients wishing to perform their own observations should be appropriately trained and deemed competent as per self-competency documentation.

To ensure patients are treated safely and appropriately it is vital that a thorough assessment of the patients and their observations is performed before dialysis is commenced. This allows early identification of arising medical problems and appropriate delivery of dialysis.
