conference overview

The KDIGO Controversies Conference on Blood Pressure (BP) and Volume Management in Dialysis examined BP measurement and targets for individuals receiving maintenance dialysis; pharmacologic interventions for BP abnormalities; dialysis prescriptions as they relate to BP and volume; extracellular volume assessment and management with a focus on technology-based solutions; and volume-related patient symptoms and experiences. The objective of this conference was to assess the current state of knowledge related to BP and volume management, and identify existing and future opportunities to improve related clinical and patient-reported outcomes among individuals receiving maintenance dialysis.

Drs. Jenny Flythe (University of North Carolina, USA) and Kevan Polkinghorne (Monash University, Australia) co-chaired this conference.
