In order to monitor heparin activity during hemodialysis, were evaluated three commonly used methods; measurement of whole blood activated coagulation time (WBACT), whole blood thrombin time (WBTT) and heparin concentration in plasma, determined with a chromogenic substrate. Studies were performed on six regular dialysis patients during 4-hour dialysis… CONTINUE READING
