(Study stopped due to a lack of enrollment.)
This is a prospective, observational study to compare presep(tm) catheter central vein mixed venous oxygen saturation before and after dialysis is initiated via the vascath(tm) central venous dialysis catheter to evaluate device interaction.
Condition or disease
The central venous oxygen saturation catheter measurement may be influenced by close approximation to the tip of the central venous hemodialysis catheter when hemodialysis is ongoing.
