Influence of the ionic dialysance monitor on Kt measurement in hemodialysis.

Am. J. Kidney Dis.. 2008 Jul;52(1):85-92, PMID: 18455852

Ionic dialysance can provide accurate monitoring of dialysis dose during each hemodialysis session. Increasingly, hemodialysis machines incorporate devices that measure ionic dialysance, allowing the dialysis dose to be determined noninvasively in real time and in each session. Because Kt product was proposed as a measure of hemodialysis dose to avoid the reverse J-shaped curve between urea reduction ratio or Kt/V and mortality, we investigated whether ionic dialysance values and Kt measurements are affected by different ionic dialysance monitors (Diascan and online clearance monitoring [OCM]) and dialysis machines.
