Encephalopathic Toxicity: An Experimental Model of Uremia and Solute-Specific Dialysis
The questions before us are: (1) How does renal failure make patients sick? and (2) How does dialysis make them better? Put another way: What is the connection, if any, between abnormal extracellular fluid (ECF) chemistry and patients’ symptomatic illness, since both are produced bys severe renal failure and both are improved by dialysis?
