    Dialysate conductivity measurements allow on-line estimation of urea clearance during hemodialysis session. Conductivity measurements provide a value of ‘conductivity clearance’ for some authors, but a value of ‘ionic dialysance’ for others. This paper aims at...

    Hemodialyzer: From macro-design to membrane nanostructure; the case of the FX-class of hemodialyzers. Very few innovations have characterized the different components of the hemodialyzers in the past 20 years. Most improvements have concerned membrane biocompatibility. In this article, we focus...

  • The oxalate level in ultrafiltrate fluid collected from a dialyzer is useful for estimating the plasma oxalate level in hemodialysis patients. Ogi, Makoto; Abe, Ryoetsu; Nishitani, Tomohito; Wakabayashi, Masanori; Wakabayashi, Tsunemichi // Clinical & Experimental Nephrology;Jun2006, Vol. 10 Issue 2, p118 

    Background. Patients on chronic hemodialysis are likely to develop secondary hyperoxalemia. It is, however, difficult to measure plasma oxalate levels. To measure plasma oxalate levels, rapid plasma separation, deproteinization, and acidification are essential in preventing the formation of...

    It is important to observe the flow pattern of dialysate when evaluating dialyzer function and developing the most appropriate design. We investigated dialysate flow through two polysulfone membrane dialyzers (TS-UL [Toray Medical] and APS-S [Asahi Medical]) by computed tomography (CT), with...

    The practice of multiple use of dialyzers was examined over a 15-month period on all 104 patients in a chronic maintenance hemodialysis facility. A computerized medical information system permitted analysis of the incidence of events in over 10.000 successive hemodialyses. It also allowed...
