Exploring the role of body composition analyzer (BCM) monitoring in improving dialysis hypotension in patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis (MHD)


51 patients with dialysis hypotension in our center, 27 females and 24 males, with an average age of (55±8.7) years old, were monitored and adjusted by BCM. The patients were re-evaluated and adjusted for 1 month before and after BCM monitoring.The incidence of hypotension and changes in mean arterial pressure.


The average dry weight before BCM monitoring was (53.2±7.9) kg, and the average dry weight after BCM monitoring was (55.8±8.1) kg. The incidence of dialysis hypotension before BCM monitoring was 38%, and the incidence after monitoring was significantly reduced to 14%. The incidence of dialysis hypotension was significantly reduced after BCM was monitored and up-regulated (P<0.001). There was no significant change in the mean arterial pressure after BCM monitoring and up-regulation of dry weight (P>0.05).


BCM monitoring can improve the dialysis hypotension of patients with MHD without increasing the patient's water and sodium retention, and does not increase the blood pressure before transfusion. It can quickly and accurately regulate the patient's dry weight.
