Determinants of haemodialyser performance and the potential effect on clinical outcome

Show Summary Details

Preview

The performance of a dialyser is determined by several factors. Many of these factors relate to the dialyser membrane, including mean pore size, pore size distribution, wall thickness, surface area, and adsorptivity. In this article, several of these factors are reviewed. The potential impact of these factors on the clinical outcome of chronic haemodialysis patients is also discussed.
