dialysate

 [di-al´ĭ-sāt]
1. the fluid and solutes in a dialysis process that simply flow through the dialyzer and do not pass through the semipermeable membrane, being discarded along with removed toxic substances after they flow back out of the dialyzer.
2. diffusate (def. 2).

di·al·y·sate

(dī-al'i-sāt),
That part of a mixture that passes through a dialyzing membrane; the material that does not pass through is referred to as the retentate.
Synonym(s): diffusate

There is evidence that continuation of PD may be beneficial as the dialysate itself could act as a sclerosant by promoting "sealing" of the epithelial layers.
The catheter is connected to the dialysate solution and drain bag through use of a Y-connector or twin-bag system.

We found that the D/Pcr was positively correlated with 24 h dialysate protein, and the peritoneal loss of protein was significantly higher in HT group compared with LT group.
Introduced multi-wavelength algorithms enable reliable and more accurate calculation of the uremic toxins concentration from the spent dialysate compared to one wavelength calculations.
Non-pharmacological methods such as reduction in dry weight and individualization of the sodium dialysate prescription represent effective means of reducing blood pressure in patients receiving dialysis.
Increasing dialysate flow rate increases dialyzer urea mass transfer-area coefficients during clinical use.
Blood enters the extracorporeal circuit through an access line, passes through the haemofilter; the dialysate and replacement fluids are added on the fluid side of the filter to increase solute exchange by diffusion and convection.
Dialysate retention and sequestration of dialysate under the skin were the most common complications noted.
An earlier study has indicated that the multi-wavelength UV-absorbance method may improve the measurement accuracy for optical creatinine concentration estimation in spent dialysate in terms of relative error, compared to the algorithm, based on the single wavelength approach [13].
Glucose-based peritoneal dialysate (PD) is responsible for increased accumulation of advanced glycation end products (AGE) in the peritoneum of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis patients.
