Transient Erythrocyte Volume (MCV) Increase in Hemodialysis
Blood volume changes during hemodialysis can be computed using simple laboratory blood tests (1, 2, 3). These methods do not take into account the possible water shifts between plasma and blood cells, a phenomenon reflected by MCV changes. The aim of this study was to reinvestigate the MCV changes due to dialysis, both in vessels and in blood passing the dialyser.
