Improvement of Treatment Compatibility in Dialysis by Blood Volume Controled Ultrafiltration
In hemodialysis therapy fluid is removed from the intravascular space. 80% of this fluid come from the extravascular compartments. As shown by continuous recording of blood volume during hemodialysis therapy, changes in blood volume are dependent on the amount of fluid overload of the patient [], the ultrafiltration rate [], the total amount of removed fluid [], and fluid shifts between the fluid compartments induced by changes in sodium concentration, body position, and food intake [].
