The 2-pool urea kinetic model has been developed analytically and applied to the description of the observed increase in blood levels of urea following dialysis (urea rebound), assuming that the dialyser urea clearance K less than 0.4X where X is the urea mass transfer coefficient between the intracellular and extracellular pools (volumes V1, V2 respectively). Urea generation was also neglected. Measurements were made in a group of six children suffering from chronic renal failure. From the… CONTINUE READING
