Abstract

The use of Kt/V to prescribe and monitor hemodialysis adequacy remains the current standard, although it is increasingly questioned. Alternative proposals for dose prescription and monitoring have been advocated. In a noninterventional, prospective study reported in this issue, Maduell et al., utilizing online ionic dialysance, explore the association between outcome measures (mortality and hospitalization rates) and the extent to which delivered Kt dose achieved minimal target Kt doses calculated from individual estimates of body surface area.
