5 Dialysis adequacy and death
The effect of dialysis dose on survival

6 First Randomised Controlled Trial In Dialysis
The National Cooperative Dialysis Study (NCDS) was the first multicentric, randomized and controlled trial to investigate the impact of dialysis dose on patients' outcome patients were randomized to two different urea time‐averaged concentrations (TAC; 100 vs 50 mg/dl) and to two different treatment times (2.5–3.5 vs 4.5–5.5 h) and followed‐up for 6 months. NCDS 1980

7 First Randomised Controlled Trial In Dialysis
Predialysis urea 38 vs 26 mmol. Dialysis h vs h high kt/v and long dialysis high kt/v and short dialysis low kt/v and long dialysis low kt/v and short dialysis NCDS 1980

8 Secondary analysis of NCDS
A quantification of dialysis dose using spKt/V was first proposed by Gotch in a secondary analysis of NCDS data. In his analysis, probability of dialysis failure was higher for Kt/V ≤0.8 and abruptly decreased for Kt/V >0.9.

9 Higher Kt/V has better outcome
Gotch FA,Sargent Kidney Int 1985;28:526

10 NCDS Conclusion Thus, according to NCDS patient morbidity and treatment failure are related to the dialysis dose

11 Why Should We Measure Dialysis Dose?
There is a correlation between delivered dose of hemodialysis and patient morbidity and mortality Clinical symptoms are not reliable

12 Increasing dialysis dose improved survival
Kidney Int 1996; 50:550

13 Measures of dialysis adequacy
SpKt/V eKt/V StdKt/V URR

14 Hemodialysis Dose Measurement
Kt/V K= dialyzer urea clearance L/h t = dialysis session length hr v = distribution volume of urea L URR

15 Urea reduction Ratio (URR)
URR = 100 x (1-Ct/Co) Ct = postdialysis BUN Co = predialysis BUN

16 Urea Reduction Volume (URR)
Simple Prediction of mortality Limitation: Does not account for the contribution of UF to dialysis dose Kt/V=1.1 (UF=0) Kt/v = 1.35 (UF=10%BW) URR=65

17 URR & Kt/V

18 Hemodialysis Dose Measurement
The preferred method is by formal kinetic urea modeling K/DOQI 2006

19 Kt/V Computerized software Mathematical logarithm
Kt/v = -Ln (R-0.008t)+(4-3.5xR) x UF W Ln = natural logarithm R = postdialysis BUN predialysis BUN UF = Ultrafiltration volume in liters W = Postdialysis weight in kg

20 BUN Sampling Predialysis Postdialysis Immediate predialysis
Slow flow/stop pump

21 Urea Rebound Organs with low blood flow (skin, bone, muscles) may serve as reservoir for urea 70% of TBW is contained in organs that receive only 20% of CO So: during HD, there is loss of urea from well perfused areas, this result in  in BUN over 60 minutes post dialysis.

22 Post Dialysis BUN Sampling
Avoid 2 rebound: Early (<3min post dialysis) Access recirculation,begin immediately post hemodialysis and rebound in 20 seconds Cardiopulmonary recirculation, begin 20 seconds post hemodialysis and is completed in 2-3 minutes after slowing or stopping the blood pump. Late (>3 min) Completed within minutes due to flow-volume disequilibrium.

23 65% rebound ( >50% is AR,15%CP,31% D)
Urea Rebound 65% rebound ( >50% is AR,15%CP,31% D)

24 Single-Compartment Fixed Volume Solute Kinetic Mode

25 Single-Pool vs Double-Pool
Does not account for urea transfer between fluid compartments With  dialyzer clearance, urea removed from extracellular compartment can exceed transfer from intracellular compartment Urea rebound (30-60 min) So: Dialysis dose will be overestimated if this urea pool is large (underestimated of true V)

26 Two-Compartment Variable Volume Solute Kinetic Model

27 Equilibrated Kt/V eKt/v is 0.2 units less than single-pool kt/v, but it can be as great 0.6 unit less. For most patient, urea rebound is nearly complete in 15 minutes after hemodialysis but for minority, it may require up to minutes The degree of rebound is high in small patient eKt/V= spKt/V x (spKt/V) / t (for arterial access) eKt/V= spKt/V x (spKt/V) / t (for venous access)

28 Minimum dialysis dose SpKt/V > 1.2 US eKt/V > 1.2 Europe

29 Daugirdas Formula

30 Daugirdas Formula

31 Prescribed vs. delivered Kt/V
Prescribed Kt/V is a computerized estimation of what the patients Kt/V would be, based on the prescription • Delivered Kt/V is actual results based on how the patient really dialyzed the day the kinetic labs were drawn


33 Discrepancies Between Delivered and Prescribed Dialysis Dose
Delivered less than the prescribed: Low blood flow Inadequate dialyzer performance Low dialysate flow Dialysis machine programmed incorrectly Hemodialysis ended prematurely The predialysis BUN was drained after initiation of hemodialysis Access recirculation

34 Discrepancies Between Delivered and Prescribed Dialysis Dose
Delivered Dose More than the Prescribed: Postdialysis BUN was drained from venous bloodline The post dialysis BUN was diluted with saline Small (V)

35 Low kt/v

36 How to improve clearance

45 Filters Efficiency and Flux Diffusion and Convection
• Efficiency: ability to achieve large small solute clearance with high blood flows (all filters are high efficiency these days) • Flux: ability to achieve high middle molecule clearance and ultrafiltration rate (determined by the average pore size) Diffusion and Convection • Diffusion: solutes move by diffusion between blocks of fluid separated by the membrane • Convection: solutes move en mass with a block of fluid across the membrane (more effective for moving large molecules)
