Abstract

Predialysis hypotension has been noted to be a predictor of mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Previous studies evaluating the impact of predialysis hypotension on the mortality of HD patients did not exclude patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) or cardiovascular disease. Eight hundred and sixty-six patients on maintenance HD were recruited. Clinical parameters were recorded and subjected to the analysis of predictors of predialysis hypotension and mortality. Multivariate logistic regression analyses indicated that DM (odds ratio [OR]: 0.439, P=0.002), hypertension history (OR: 0.634, P=0.022), Kt/V Daugirdas (OR: 2.545, P=0.001), anuria (OR: 2.313, P=0.002), serum phosphate (OR: 0.833, P=0.010), and serum triglyceride (OR: 1.002, P=0.012) were associated with predialysis hypotension. Multivariate Cox regression analysis showed that age (P<0.001), male sex (P=0.029), anuria (P=0.004), and DM (P=0.011) were associated with higher probability of 24- and 36-month mortality. Predialysis hypotension was not associated with higher probability of 12-, 24-, and 36-month mortality. Predialysis hypotension is not a predictor of 12-, 24-, and 36-month survival in patients without DM and with higher dialysis adequacy.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 24 August 2016.
All research outputs
#7,834,178
of 12,485,238 outputs
Outputs from Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management
#642
of 922 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#144,805
of 262,247 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management
#38
of 48 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,485,238 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 922 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.1. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 262,247 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 48 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
