Are You Overlooking this Common Source of Cardiac Dysfunction?

We’ve told you about the rising rate of cardiac failure among hemodialysis patients. But did you know that the AV access is often an overlooked source of cardiac dysfunction in patients?
This is because the AV access bypasses the customary arteriole/capillary beds and establishes a direct high flow connection between the arterial and venous systems, which significantly affects blood flow. Find out more about how access flow can impact cardiac output and what you can do to protect your patients in this post.
