A mathematical analysis of a two-compartment model of urea kinetics.

Abstract

A model of urea distribution comprising well-mixed intracellular and extracellular compartments, with diffusive transfer of urea between compartments, is used to study blood urea variation during haemodialysis. Assuming that a typical adult patient (weight 70 kg and urea generation rate 5 mg min-1) is dialysed using a high-efficiency dialyser (urea… (More)
