Effective ionic dialysance (EID) is an online measure of hemodialysis (HD) effective urea clearance that is calculated using changes in dialysate sodium conductivity. Effective ionic dialysance is blood flow (Q(b)) dependent. The presence of significant (> or =5%) access recirculation (sAR) during dialysis lowers EID at a given Q(b), thereby lowering(More)
