The article presents information on dye-dilution cardiac output technique for hemodialyzed patients with arteriovenous fistula. For the determination of cardiac output, two needles were inserted in the arterialized vein of the A-V fistula as used for hemodialysis. One needle was implanted distally near the fistula itself and another one more proximally. The technique was used in the measurement of cardiac output through the standard needles used for hemodialysis with an A-V fistula. The determination of cardiac output using this method appears to be very accurate when compared to the conventional technique.

    Background. The rope-ladder puncture technique, with cannulation along the whole length of the vessel traject, has been very common in haemodialysis patients with autogenous arterio-venous fistula (AVF). Today's dialysis population with AVF may exhibit difficult cannulation, because of a short...
