Abstract

An essential but frequently neglected aspect of dialysis treatment is the dialysis fluid produced by blending treated tap water with concentrated solutions containing electrolytes and buffer. Chemical and microbiological contaminants as well as the electrolyte and buffer composition of the dialysis fluid play major roles in the induction or modulation of morbidity associated with regular dialysis therapy.
