Kinetics of Solute Removal in Hemodialysis

  • Frank A. Gotch
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 223)


The basic premise of dialysis therapy for uremia is that uremic pathophysiology is dependent on abnormal solute levels in body water which can be normalized by dialysis. Consequently, the clinician is concerned with predicting changes in concentration and body content of solutes as a function of the amount of dialysis prescribed. This can best be achieved through kinetic analysis.
