diaylis treatment
My mother is at end stage kidney failure. she was recently put on dialysis about 3or 4weeks ago. she was also diagnosed with amlydosis a few months ago. for the past week now she has been unable to do dialysis treatment due to her pressure being too low. if pressure remains too low any longer, how long would she be able to survive without dialysis treatment?

If a patient who requires dialysis (meaning they make absolutely no urine) and has blood pressures that are either too low at rest, or drops precipitously too low during dialysis, continuous veno-venous hemodialysis (CVVHD) might be warranted.  This is usually done at a hospital, and often times, in an ICU-setting as dialysis is done continuously (around the clock) rather than intermittently during the regular 2-3 hour sessions 3 times/week.
