Abstract

Introduction:The dialysis disequilibrium syndrome is defined as a medical syndrome of neurologic deterioration that manifests in hemodialysis patients. It is much more likely to occur in patients during or immediately following their first treatment, but it can occur in any affected person who receives hemodialysis. Methods:For the study, a descriptive research design was used. The research was carried out at Saveetha Medical College Hospital in Chennai. The convenience sampling technique was used to select 60 samples that met the inclusion criteria. Dialysis Disequilibrium Syndrome (DDS) risk assessment was performed prior to hemodialysis imitation, and the client is continuously monitoring signs and symptoms of Dialysis Disequilibrium Syndrome (DDS) during intra dialysis and the first hour after dialysis. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyse the data.Results: Intradialysis results Karl Pearson's correlation coefficient of 0.501 indicates a moderately positive correlation. Karl Pearson's Correlation value of r = 0.404 after dialysis indicates a mild positive correlation that was found to be statistically significant at the p0.001 level. Conclusion: This clearly implies that as the risk factor increases, so do the signs and symptoms. "As a result, early detection of DDS (Dialysis Disequilibrium Syndrome) is a very powerful action to reduce the severity of mortality."This descriptive study discusses the importance of demographic and clinical variables in the development of Dialysis Disequilibrium Syndrome (DDS).
