High-quality dialysis does not always mean high efficiency; dialysis should maintain nutritional balance and full biocompatibility. In undergoing treatment with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) and/or ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer (EVAL) membrane dialysers, the body weight decrease caused by polysulfone membrane has been dramatically improved for those receiving predilution online haemodiafiltration (HDF) as well. These membranes are assumed to somewhat suppress the clearance of small molecular… CONTINUE READING
