Table 5 Comparison of the changes in values between the middle to pre-dialysis periods and the post-dialysis to middle periods

From: Associations between fluid removal and number of B-lines, peak early mitral inflow wave velocity, and inferior vena cava dimensions in hemodialysis patients

  2nd–1st 3rd–2nd P value
ΔE (cm/s) − 23 ± 14 − 7 ± 6 < 0.0001
ΔIVC-ex (mm) − 4 ± 3 − 1 ± 2 < 0.0001
ΔB-lines − 3 ± 3 − 4 ± 2 0.0016
  1. Mean ± SD
  2. 1st just after the start, 2nd middle, 3rd just before the end, E peak early diastolic filling velocity, IVC inferior vena cava dimensions, ex exhalation
