Abstract

In a study of autonomic function in chronic renal failure, electrodermal response to valsalva stimulation (exhalation against 40 mmHg for 12 sec) was recorded for 25 patients maintained on hemodialysis and 25 normal controls. The dialysis patients were found to have greatly reduced phasic (skin conductance response) and tonic (skin conductance level) electrodermal activity. There was minimal overlap between the two groups. Positive correlations were obtained among electrodermal conductance and residual renal function and motor nerve conduction velocity. The results may bear on the assessment of the dialysis technique.
