About

Dr. Flythe’s research interests include identifying and understanding modifiable mortality determinants among maintenance dialysis patients and developing innovative treatment strategies to reduce these risks. She is particularly interested in hemodialysis procedural risk factors. The majority of her work focuses on dialysis hemodynamics, fluid management, and blood pressure patterns among maintenance hemodialysis patients. She also incorporates patient-centered outcomes and patient preferences into her work to ensure that patient-stated priorities drive outcomes research.

At UNC, Dr. Flythe is involved in the management of acute and chronic kidney disease patients with a focus on hemodialysis patients at the UNC Hospital and Kidney Center and its associated outpatient dialysis facilities.
