Latha A and Dr. Indira A

Introduction: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a long term condition where the kidneys do not work as well as normal. CKD does not usually cause any symptoms until it has reached an advanced stage. It is usually detected at earlier stages by blood and urine tests. Hemodialysis is the type of dialysis that most people are aware of it. It involves inserting a needle, which is attached by a tube to a dialysis machine, into a blood vessel. Blood is transferred from body and into the machine, which filters out waste products and excess fluids. The filtered blood is then passed back into the body. Most people require three sessions of hemodialysis in a week, with each session lasting for four hours. The aim of the study is to assess the level of fatigue among Chronic Kidney Disease patients with AV fistula undergoing haemodialysis.
Methodology: A cross-sectional study was conducted on 100 Participants who are admitted in dialysis unit in Ramachandran Reddy Hospital who fulfilling the inclusion criteria. A Modified Multi-Dimensional Rating scale to assess the level of fatigue. It consists of 18 items.
Results: The scores shows that 54(54%) were having Moderate Fatigue level and 46(46%) were having severe Fatigue level of score. Frequency and percentage distribution to assess the level of fatigue among CKD patients with AV fistula undergoing hemodialysis. The mean value fatigue is 9.06 and SD of 1.6.
Conclusion: Most of the CKD patients having moderate level of fatigue with A.V fistula however, need to conduct interventional studies to reduce the fatigue.
