Interpretation of postpump arterial pressures may identify poor arterial flow through the dialyzer by denoting higher pressures.
The authors set about to clarify the effect of extensive reprocessing (up to 15 uses) with Renalin[TM] on small and large solute clearances for two each of commonly used low and high flux dialyzers. Patients are thus protected from inadvertent albumin (protein) loss, while clearance of [[Beta].sub.2] Microglobulin is progressively reduced.
They further suggested prescribing a higher target Kt/V for reuse patients or using on-line urea monitoring, with appropriate modification of dialysis time to adjust for reduced clearances as the reused dialyzer ages.
Dialyzer reuse is not a straightforward proposition.
In July of 1998, the Dialysis Centers of Dayton LLC in consortium with the Miami Valley Hospital Artificial Kidney Unit determined that the average dialyzer reuse number was too low and met to determine how this number could be improved.
The Global Dialyzer Market size is expected to reach $4.4 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 6.21% CAGR during the forecast period.
AN 69 dialyzers (M-60 and M-100, AN-69 membrane) were used in 83.33 percent (15/18) and PAES dialyzer (HF-20, PAES membrane) was used in 16.66 percent (3/18) of dogs during Continuous renal replacement therapy (CVVHDF).
HDF was performed via a dialyzer using a PS membrane at the rates of QB 1 mL/min, QD 8 mL/h and QF 0-0.3 mL/min (mean=0.14 mL/min) for 30 minutes.

Dialysis centers exhibit variations in practice patterns, including choice of dialyzer reuse, whether to offer PD and late shifts, staff size and so on.
I need money for my fare in going to the center and for my dialyzer (equipment used in dialysis) because each one is good for just five sessions, Diwa said, adding that a dialyzer costs P1,500.
Some research identifies the problematic material that passes through dialyzer membrane directly as endotoxin, the byproduct of bacteria and the substance stimulating the physiological symptoms of inflammation.
