Arterial oxygen partial pressure decreases during hemodialysis if acetate as buffer is used or if certain types of bioincompatible dialyzer membranes are used. Several hypotheses considering the main cause of this hypoxemia have been proposed. To gain more insight into the mechanisms leading to this hypoxemia, a mathematical model for the computerized… CONTINUE READING
