In the short term, if too much water is removed from your blood in a 3-4 hour treatment, your body will become dehydrated (dried out). Besides low blood pressure, you may have painful muscle cramps, nausea and vomiting, feel dizzy, or pass out. These symptoms can be so severe that you dread coming to dialysis. You can avoid these problems by knowing your dry weight and checking your fluid removal goal at each treatment.
Though individuals vary, generally a blood pressure before dialysis should be less than 150/90 and after treatment should be less than 130/80. Common dangers of high blood pressure are stroke, heart attack, and vessel diseases. High BP can cause congestive heart failure due to an increased load on the heart.

Certainly, in the general dialysis population, the removal .
A sudden drop in blood pressure while undergoing dialysis has long vexed many kidney patients.

Patients also suffer in the short term with gastrointestinal, muscular and neurologic symptoms .
Dialysis patient here as well. Low blood pressure is very common. It is usually caused from dehydration. One of the purposes of dialysis is to remove fluid from the bloodstream that would normally be turned into urine by the kidneys. Removing fluid causes blood pressure to drop, and removing too much
Low blood pressure (hypotension) is pressure so low it causes symptoms or signs due to the low flow of blood through the arteries and veins. When the flow of blood is too low to deliver enough oxygen and nutrients to vital organs such as the brain, heart, and kidney, the organs do not function normally and may be temporarily or permanently damaged.
