Conclusions: According to our data, there is no difference in the reached dialysis dose
according to the type of vascular access employed.
Optimizing dialysis dose
by increasing blood flow rate in patients with reduced vascular-access flow rate.
They rationalised this by calculating that their weekly dialysis dose
was the same as when they dialysed during the daytime.
Merike Luman defended her PhD thesis on the assessment of dialysis dose
and nutrion by an optical method in 2010 (supervisor I.
On-line monitoring of the dialysis dose
has been suggested as a valuable tool to ensure adequate dialysis prescription .
While survival and hospitalizations were not substantially different among the 1,800 hemodialysis patients randomly assigned to high or standard dialysis doses
and high- or low-flux filters, there were intriguing-though not definitive-findings for certain patients.
One-sixth of the 200,000 Americans undergoing hemodialysis treatment do not receive an adequate dialysis dose
, it was bund.

In designing the program, FMCNA sought to address some of the reversible risk factors contributing to early mortality, such as poor nutrition, anemia, poor mineral metabolism, cardiac issues, inadequate dialysis dose
, and lack of patient empowerment.
A vital component in delivering high-quality care to patients requiring renal replacement therapy is the regular measurement of dialysis dose
In order to evaluate the correlation between dialysis dose
measured by ionic dialysance and those measured by urea kinetic equation by Kt/V second generation according to Daugirdas, we designed a cross-sectional study involving 28 prevalent patients in our dialysis unit, we obtained affiliation data, dialysis dose
(clearance, KT, KT/V) by ionic dialysance and KT/V by Daugirdas formula.
A longer, overnight therapy also allows greatly expanded flexibility in dialysis dose
and schedule, better enabling physicians to match the dialysis prescription to individual patient needs.
Several guidelines recommend minimum target values of Kt/V formula aimed at delivering an adequate dialysis dose
to all patients [7,8].
All patients were on chronic thrice-weekly hemodialysis; dialysis dose
was ensured according to the international guidelines .
