Frequency and grade of premature ventricular depolarizations were assessed in 10 patients on maintenance renal replacement therapy. All medication was withdrawn prior to the study. Each patient was treated sequentially by 8 different methods [acetate and bicarbonate hemodialysis (HD), hemofiltration, hemodiafiltration, ultrafiltration, use of 5 different membranes]. Despite marked changes in serum electrolyte concentrations there was no difference in frequency or grade of premature ventricular… CONTINUE READING
