Objective: To identify the factors related to post-hemodialysis recovery time in kidney failure patients. Method: This study used a descriptive correlation design with a cross-sectional method. The samples in the study were 185 hemodialysis patients at Sanglah Central Hospital, Denpasar, who were recruited through a consecutive sampling technique. Data were analyzed using multiple linear regressions. Results: The results of the study showed that the mean recovery time was 578.41 ± 402.27 min. Post-hemodialysis recovery time was found to be significantly related to the hemodialysis schedule (p = 0.029), comorbid diseases (p = 0.046), the number of acute complications (p = 0.001), and depression (p = 0.004). The results of multivariate analysis showed that the number of acute complications during hemodialysis was the most dominant factor related to recovery time (β = 0.747). Conclusion: Gender, upper-arm circumference, hemodialysis schedule, sodium dialysate concentration, intradialytic weight loss, comorbid diseases, and the number of acute complications were found to be significant correlated with post-hemodialysis recovery time.
