Intradialytic hypotension (IH) is a major complication during acute hemodialysis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of dialysate temperature (DT) reduction with Na and ultrafiltration (UF) profiling on hemodynamics of critically ill acute kidney injury (AKI) patients submitted to sustained low-efficiency dialysis (SLED).
