Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Pruritus can be one of the important factors of exacerbation of discomfort in patients with chronic renal failure. In an unpublished clinical trial which was performed in the Semnan University of Medical Sciences, the effect of reduction of dialysate temperature on controlling the pruritus was assessed. The results suggest a positive effect. The author recommends further studies to consider reducing dialysate temperature on control of pruritus.
