The relationship between hemodialysis (HD) symptoms and dialyzer membrane composition and area, blood-flow, treatment duration, urea removal, ultrafiltration volume, leukocyte activation, and complement generation (C3a) was studied in 20 patients undergoing 234 HD treatments by 12 different modes in random order using Cuprophan, hemophane, or polyamide membranes with small or large membrane areas with high Qb (400 ml/min) and short duration (2 h) or low Qb (200 ml/min) and long duration (4 h… CONTINUE READING
