Background: Atrial fibrillation is a frequent arrhythmia in patients undergoing hemodialysis. The consequences of hemodialysis on P wave durations and P wave dispersion have not been fully understood. The objective of this study was to study the effect of dialysis on P wave maximum (P-max), P wave minimum (P-min), and P wave dispersion (P-d).
