We developed a new method of hemodialysis using a charging chamber for treatment of hemodialysis patients with hypotension occurring during the latter half of hemodialysis (collapse). The purpose of this method was to recover systolic blood pressure (BP) by returning a part of blood within the chamber into the body circulation when hemodialysis collapse occurred. Using this method, systolic BP recovery (DeltaBP) in ten hemodialysis patients (4 males, 6 females, mean age 66.0 years old) was compared to a control group treated with intravenous administration of 20 ml of 10% NaCl. When hemodialysis collapse occurred, 60 ml of blood within the chamber in this method and 20 ml of 10% NaCl intravenously in the control group were administered and systolic BP was measured 20 minutes later. The results showed that DeltaBP using this method was 26.0 mm Hg (ANOVA: p = 0.0072), while in the control group it was 30.2 mm Hg (ANOVA: p = 0.0003), and there was no significant difference between the systolic BP recovery of both groups (paired t test: p = 0.4196).
