Transonic, thermodilution, or ionic dialysance to manage vascular access: which method is best?
Blood flow determination in vascular access withionic dialysance.
Q: What is known about ionic dialysance, a new method for measuring dialysis dose?
With technological advances in hemodialysis equipment, it is now possible to obtain online assessment of sodium clearance via a built-in online clearance program referred to as ionic dialysance, Kt/V (ID) (Locatelli et al.
Dialysis dose (Kt/V) and clearance variation sensitivity using measurement of ultraviolet-absorbance (on-line), blood urea, dialysate urea and ionic dialysance
OCM uses ionic dialysance
to measure Kt/V Ionic dialysance
is a measure of the conductivity of the dialysate waste via a conductivity probe and compares this to the conductivity of the fresh inflow of dialysate during the HD session.
Transonic realizes that the dialysance
method has not been independently validated, and we would not want to block scientific inquiry.
Kt data, measured by the monitor, were collected by ionic dialysance
in all sessions of the study period.
measurement is urea distribution volume dependent: A new approach to better results.
Currently almost all dialysis monitors are equipped with ionic dialysance
sensors, allowing to indirectly and at real-time to get information about urea clearance in all dialysis sessions without obtaining blood samples.
Describe how ionic dialysance
measurements may be used to proactively adjust the treatment so that the prescribed dialysis doses can be accurately and consistently delivered.
