1 IntroductionThe current recommended method to measure the dialysis dose is Kt/V [1–4]. Kt/V, which measures urea clearance by dialysis time divided by the volume of distribution of urea, can be calculated by different formulas. Currently, the most accepted formula to calculate the monocompartmental Kt/V is the 2nd generation Daugirdas formula. Several internationally acknowledged studies have demonstrated that dialysis dose is related with patient prognosis; in patients with three weekly sessions, [...]
