Abstract

During Hemodiafiltration (HDF) the kinetics of bicarbonate and calcium involves both a convective loss through the filter into the dialysate and a diffusive uptake from the dialysate (1). A careful study of these phenomena is, therefore, necessary to avoid acid-base and calcium imbalance. Aim of this study was to evaluate the balance of both bicarbonate and calcium through the filter during postdilutional HDF.
