Is ionic dialysance
useful for early detection of vascular access dysfunction?
Weidmann et al., "Plasma levels and dialysance
of atrial natriuretic peptide in terminal renal failure," Kidney International, vol.
Dialysis variables were usually collected and then extracted from Dialog7[R] software: effective time of session, ultrafiltration rate, convective volume, real blood volume depurated, Kt measured by ionic dialysance
, clotting events and quantity of blood residues, and increased time to hemostasis.
Q: What is known about ionic dialysance
, a new method for measuring dialysis dose?
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.
Lindberg, "Dialysis dose (Kt/V) and clearance variation sensitivity using measurement of ultraviolet-absorbance (on-line), blood urea, dialysate urea and ionic dialysance
," Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation, vol.
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.
Blood flow determination in vascular access withionic dialysance
* 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.
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.
