    Why Patients Have Acute Shortness of Breath on Dialysis

    Why Patients Have Acute Shortness of Breath on DialysisDialysis is an important medical measure for patients with kidney disease when their kidney function is damaged severely, but dialysis is a treatment which often causes patients to have many health problems, among which many patients may find they have acute shortness of breath.

    Dialysis using syndrome is a common problem for patients with kidney disease who are accepting dialysis, and that can also cause patients to have shortness of breath.

    This condition is mainly caused by patient’s allergy to dialysis machine, and it is more likely to appear when new dialysis machine or new pipeline is used.

    Low blood pressure is also very common for patients who are on dialysis, which can cause patients to have many obvious symptoms, like nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, etc. Low blood pressure has high ratio in patients who are accepting dialysis, and it is about 20%~40%.


    Kidney has the function of secreting hormones, among which hemopoietin plays a key role in producing red cell. As we know, patients who need dialysis has low kidney function, so it normal for them to have severe anemia, and that can also cause patients to have shortness of breath.
