Total metal concentrations were determined in the serum of 12 continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients and in fresh and spent CAPD fluids by electrothermal and flame atomic absorption spectrometry (ETAAS, FAAS). Concentrations of Cu in serum of CAPD patients ranged from 720 to 1780 ngcm(-3), Rb from 128 to 346 ngcm(-3), Al from 10 to 72 ngcm(-3), Fe from 800 to 2300 ngcm(-3) and Zn from 659 to 1310 ngcm(-3). The accuracy of the analytical procedure was checked by the analysis… CONTINUE READING
