Good morning,


Hope to steal some information from you regarding……..steal!


Does anyone have specific diagnostic criteria for diagnosing steal from dialysis access grafts/fistulas?  Are you using finger PPG waveforms before and after access compression?  Finger pressures?  Radial/ulnar CW or PW waveforms pre- and post- access compression?  Are you looking to see if flow just increases to the hand with access compression, or are you measuring how much of a change there is in pressure or waveform amplitude and then determining whether there is a steal based on the change in flow?
