About this book


This book provides a complete description of online hemodiafiltration (HDF) in five sections. Sections cover topics such as technical and essential aspects of convective techniques, equipment, the effects of HDF treatment on various biomarkers, results of recent large randomized control trials and meta-analyses on HDF treatment, as well as various practical issues.

Online HDF has become an established treatment nowadays, and is supported by a vast amount of comprehensive information on a diversity of clinical and scientific aspects. This book collects and structure this information in a convenient practical guide for professionals interested in and/or working with patients with end stage kidney disease. 

Hemodiafiltration - A Practical Guide is of great and global relevance for health regulatory authorities and insurance companies, dialysis industries and last but not least for the millions of  patients for whom dialysis therapy is a life-saving treatment.
