Nephrologist 's  Response
This does not look to be drug induced. It seems more due to water accumulation in the lungs just before dialysis. You should restrict her oral fluids to the amount that her weight gain between sessions of dialysis is less than 2lt. Also cardiac evaluation by an echocardiography is indicated to check the pumping of her heart. Most importantly restrict the oral salt to less than 2grams per day.
