Taking Venus line off before arterial line in dialysis

Hello. I have a line in my neck. In dialysis yesterday the nurse mistakenly took off my Venus line first before the Arterial line via the machine. I began to feel Funny, told her and she laughed and said she hasn't done that for a long time (which meant she'd done this before. What happened to me please? What could be happened please?

Thanx Linda x

I haven't had a neck line but do have a fistula in my arm. Sometimes if my Venus line is playing up, they wash back through the arterial line and its no problem.....
