Pulmonary Aspects of Dialysis Patients

  • Marc E. De Broe

  • Wilfried A. De Backer


Patients with acute or end-stage chronic renal failure, whether treated by dialysis or not, frequently develop pulmonary complications such as edema, pleural effusion and infection (1). In addition, hemodialysis treatment is always accompanied with a variable degree of hypoxemia at the start or towards the end of the treatment session. Respiratory failure secondary to hyperkalemia is a life threatening, fortunately rare complication, in chronic hemodialysis
