Allergic reactions during hemodialysis - Are they worth your attention? Absolutely!
For haemodialysis patients, the allergen that causes allergic reactions is the synthetic dialyser membrane.
17% of patients do not report severe itching to staff.
69% of Medical Directors in dialysis centres underestimate the prevalence of itching.
It is easy to confuse an allergic reaction to a synthetic dialyser membrane with symptoms of kidney disease, side effects of haemodialysis treatment or other pathologies.
