An Advanced, User-Friendly Microcomputer Program for Hemodialysis Kinetics

  • Tom Buur
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 223)


This project has been undertaken as a study in medical informatics. The aim is to develop a multipurpose program for hemodialysis kinetics with the following characteristics: 1. Can be used on widespread computer systems. 2. Is easy to use 3. Can treat the general, unsimplified case, if desired 4. Can be customized for individual requirements.
