PURPOSE: Patients undergoing intermittent hemodialysis (HD) with ultrafiltration (UF) frequently experience hypotension which potentially can result in end-organ injury. Prior research has shown that pulse O2 saturation (SpO2) waveform may correlate with changes in intravascular volume. This study assessed the ability of the changes in pulse oximetry waveform patients before and after UF to reflect changes in intravascular volume.
