Haemodialysis recirculation detected by the three-sample method is an artefact.

Abstract

The efficiency of haemodialysis may be limited by recirculation of blood between venous and arterial needles. Recirculation can be detected directly using a saline dilution method but is most commonly calculated from the urea concentrations of simultaneous samples from venous and arterial lines and a peripheral vein (three-sample method). The methods detect… (More)
