Abstract

KDOQI practice guidelines recommend predialysis blood pressure /=160 mm Hg. For patient-level systolic blood pressure, mortality was elevated at low (/=180 mm Hg), systolic blood pressure. For predialysis diastolic blood pressure, mortality was lowest at 60-99 mm Hg, a wide range implying less chance to improve outcomes. Higher mortality at systolic blood pressure of
