A better understanding of these aspects helps to understand and manage difficult daily situations. Objectives: This study describes the emotional state of patients on hemodialysis using the EE-D questionnaire, applied by nursing professionals and we will analyze if there is a relationship between this and other individual variables.

The EE-D questionnaire was used, which evaluates the sadness and nervousness perceived by the patient in the last week, their concerns in different areas and what motivations they find to feel better or to be excited. Demographic, labor, adherence to pharmacological data, etc. were collected in an ad hoc questionnaire.
