[Changes in rubidium and cesium levels in the blood of patients on long-term dialysis and decreased velocity of neural conduction].

In 19 patients aged 19 to 45 years on long-term dialysis treatment during 12.6 +/- 18.2 months the concentrations of Rb and Cs were determined by atomic spectrometry in whole blood before and behind the dialyser at the beginning and end of dialysis.
