Body Composition Affects Urea Distribution Volume Estimated by Watson's Formula.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Dialysis machines use the Watson formula (Vwatson) to estimate the urea distribution volume (UDV) to calculate the online Kt/V for each dialysis session. However, the equation could give rise to inaccuracies. The present study analyzes whether body composition affects UDV estimated by Vwatson in comparison to bioimpedance spectroscopy (Vbis) as… (More)
