However, after adjusted for age, sex, time on dialysis, urea reduction ratio, spKt/V, SBP, DBP, and hemoglobin, different hospital tiers were not associated with hyperphosphatemia and high iPTH ( P = 0.312 and P = 0.157, respectively).
For dialysis-related indicators, such as the urea reduction ratio, spKt/V, predialysis blood pressure, and hemoglobin, the patients at the tertiary institutions were superior to the patients at the non-tertiary institutions.
The urea reduction ratio and serum albumin concentrations as predictors of mortality in patients undergoing hemodialysis.
(14) We also calculated urea reduction ratio (URR) because another measure of delivered dialysis dose is the URR.
Physiological indicators included albumin, preblood urea nitrogen, interdialytic weight gain, Kt/V, urea reduction ratio, phosphorus, hemoglobin and hematocrit.
Correlation between compliance with hemodialysis treatment, Kt/V and URR (n = 50) Compliance with Hemodialysis treatment Self-Care Management Outcomes Pearson r P-value Kt/V 0.105 ns 0.469 Urea Reduction Ratio 0.025 ns 0.865 ns .
The most common dialysis adequacy assessments in general are the Kt/V and the urea reduction ratio (URR).
Current KDOQI, European, and Australian nephrology guidelines (CARI) suggest that the target dose of dialysis is a single pool Kt/V (spKt/V) of 1.4 or a urea reduction ratio (URR) of 70% (Kerr, Perkovic, Petrie, Agar, & Disney, 2005).

Urea reduction ratio. Adequacy of treatment is critical to ensure avoidance of uremic symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, which will cause further compromise in food intake.
It was found that patients in the group with > 5% gain exhibited higher Kt/V, solute removal index, urea reduction ratio, predialysis blood urea nitrogen (BUN), urea removal rate, and protein catabolic rate (PCR) than those in the < 5% group.
Although Uyghur people demonstrated a higher predialysis blood pressure and lower hemoglobin levels, albumin levels, urea reduction ratios, and Kt/V values compared to Han people, nevertheless, there were no significant differences in the CKD-MBD markers in the Uyghur and Han groups.
