These factors pose a major challenge to the proper management of dialysis patients. The other complicating factor is the differing sensitivity of patients (and sometimes the same patient at different times) to the most commonly used anticoagulant, heparin. Anticoagulation methods are described below (Fig. 2). S. 1 <10 Reuse >10 Reuse Fig. 1 Comparison of Kt/V in patients with lower and higher reuse on regular dialysate and citrate dialysate. (From Reference 2) 2. Heparin (10–50 units / kg / hr) Citrate 2 – 8% Qb 2 – 6 mEq / min 3.

These data point to the need for effective anticoagulation during the treatment. Further, the activation of the clotting cascade is known to produce proinflammatory proteins that, in turn, activate the inflammatory cascades; inflammation is commonly reported in dialysis patients. Unfortunately, dialysis patients are also at increased risk of bleeding due to platelet dysfunction, at the same time clotting of the extracorporeal system and of the vascular access is a common occurrence. These factors pose a major challenge to the proper management of dialysis patients.

To avoid this, the clamps on the side branches should be good quality and close to the main tubing segment. The procedure should ensure flushing of the heparin and other side branches during the rinse cycle. 2 Blood Pump The most common type of blood pump is the roller design. Rotating rollers compress the pump segment of the tubing and sweep the blood forward. The speed of rotation determines Qb. The usual Qbs range from 200 to 500 ml/min in adults (median rate about 350 ml/min). If the pump is set at a certain rate but access is unable to provide blood at that rate, the pressure in the arterial chamber 1 drops below the set range and the alarm stops dialysis.
