How to improve dialysis adequacy in patients with vascular access problems.

Abstract

Blood flow rate is a critical factor in the achievement of an adequate dialysis dose. The aim of this review is to evaluate the possibility of optimizing dialysis dose in terms of Kt/V in patients with reduced vascular access (VA) flow rate, considering effective blood flow (Qb eff), recirculation, access flow and hemodialyzer. In patients where the… (More)
