Immediately after hemodialysis, the urea concentration rebounds upwards as urea continues to be transferred into the arterial circulation from peripheral body compartments. This rebound takes at least 30 minutes to complete. Hemodialysis is quantified as the Kt/V, calculated prom pre- and post-dialysis urea samples. Unless the post-dialysis sample is taken at least 30 minutes after dialysis, the Kt/V will be overestimated. This overestimation will be relatively greater in short high-efficiency… CONTINUE READING
