However, more recently, it has been considered that the hemodialysis product (HDP), rather than the Kt/V, is better associated with the clinical symptoms and outcomes in patients undergoing short daily dialysis or nocturnal dialysis.

The purpose of the present study was to establish a continuous hemofiltration model using porcine blood to compare filter life. Continuous hemofiltration (CHF) experiments were performed using an in vitro hemofilter evaluation system utilizing porcine blood containing trisodium citrate in addition to nafamostat mesilate as anticoagulants. The lifetime of the hemofilter was evaluated using the transmembrane pressure and the pressure drop across the hemofilter at varying trisodium citrate concentr...
