Abstract

1) The TGM is a valuable and reproducible indicator of QA during HD. 2) The Twister™ device is useful to reduce the time for QA measurement by the TGM. 3) The AVF blood flow values obtained by the TGM and the Delta-H technique correlated highly with each other. 4) It has been shown the lack of relationship between the AVF function and the patient's blood pressure.
