Solute and Water Transport and Sterilant Removal in Reused Dialyzers
Since variable decay of solute and water transport rates can be expected in reused dialyzers, it is essential that the magnitude of decay be predictable in an individual dialyzer prior to certification that it is suitable for reuse. Practical clinical reality further requires that this certification be based on an inexpensive and easily measured property of the reused dialyzer that can be quantitatively related to the transport capacity.
