Studies with 1.75 mmol/L calcium dialysate have shown that patients gain calcium from dialysate. Thus, hypercalcemia, especially when calcium compounds are used for phosphate control, is a commonly seen complication. Dialysate with 1.25 mmol/L calcium has been available since 1989. Little is known about calcium mass transfer (CMT) with dialysate of this calcium concentration. CMT was measured in 20 stable adult peritoneal dialysis patients. Each CMT study consisted of a 2-L continuous… CONTINUE READING
