One review of literature indicated that, while ultrafiltration may not improve renal function, it did not cause an increased deterioration of renal function either when compared with diuretic use (Kazory & Ross, 2009).

Each group had differing tracking systems that required oversight to ensure we were in compliance with the regulations.

Outcomes We accomplished our goal with a 98% vaccination rate.

The ultrafiltration process is able to remove 2-4 liters of fluid in a single treatment without a hypotensive effect due to the ability to keep a plasma refilling rate proportional to the fluid removal rate (Rosenthal, 2004).

Each year our Chief Nursing Officer and Medical Director partner to promote influenza vaccination.

Dialysis nurses are available and already trained in the ultrafiltration process with 5 floor nurses who are experienced in caring for individuals receiving ultrafiltration for renal dysfuction.

Standards of care in the aquapheresis process include monitoring vital signs, labs, edema and weight changes, maintenance of the catheter, intake and output, and continued education of the patient regarding ultrafiltration and heart failure management.

The hospital is able to perform catheter access either through the PICC team or interventional radiology depending on the physician's order and appropriateness for the patient.
