Multicompartment analysis of the effects of plasmapheresis. Application to lipid kinetics in humans.

Abstract

The quantitative effect of plasmapheresis on concentrations of intravascular solutes is described by a minimal two-compartment model, which allows exit to and entry from a nonplasma body pool of the solute. This novel method is simple and capable of determining endogenous metabolic turnover of physiologically important plasma constituents in both… (More)
