UF deviation message on Baxter


#1

New to Pd receiving UF deviation at the end of my treatment. What does that mean? Is it something to be concerned about? The number is 636 after the comment.
Thank you.

It sounds like your PD cycler isn’t removing all the fluid you drain in. If so, your prescription may need to be changed or the placement of your catheter may need to be evaluated to make sure it’s in the best position to remove all the fluid. Removing too little fluid can lead to fluid overload and shortness of breath. I’d suggest you contact your home training nurse and/or Baxter to find out what needs to be done to correct this.
