Effects of ionized sodium concentrations on ultrafiltration rate in peritoneal dialysis using lactate and lactate/bicarbonate solutions.


OBJECTIVE To investigate the possible effects of different concentrations of ionized sodium (NaI) on peritoneal ultrafiltration (UF) rate using lactate (Lac) and lactate/bicarbonate (Lac/Bic) dialysis solutions. DESIGN Two random consecutive (after an interval of 48 hours) peritoneal equilibration tests (PETs) were performed in 13 patients (4 males and 9… (More)
