II.2 Haemodialysis dose quantification: middle molecules (MM)

Show Summary Details


Guideline II.2.1

A. β 2‐m is representative in its kinetic behaviour of other MM and peptides of similar size, and may be used as a marker for such molecules.

(Evidence level: B)

Guideline II.2.2

A. To enhance MM removal, synthetic high‐flux membranes should be used. Additional strategies, such as adding a convective component, or increasing HD time or frequency, should be used to maximize MM removal.

(Evidence level: B)
