My father is a heart patient with amyloidosis and edema. He is in coma after cardiac arrest for seven days now. He was diagnosed with hypertension 26 years ago. His current medications are Lasix, Midodrine, Amiodarone and Eliquis. Patient also has AFib. Patient has BP readings of 121/71 mmHg. There is an option for dialysis, but could affect the fragile heart. How much does dialysis lower the pressure? Is dialysis being done in the stomach safer? What medication would help the patient before the procedure?
