Most machines allow the operator to check what the actual ﬂuid removal achieved was over a given time period. Such checks should be done to ensure that the correct ﬂuid removal is entered into the ﬂuid balance calculations; many nursing protocols mandate ﬂuid balance check each hour particularly for inexperienced nurses. The beneﬁts of such continuous monitoring of ﬂuid delivery and removal are many. They include frequent patient assessment, vigilance with regard to other simultaneous therapies, attention to detail, avoidance of dangerous swings in ﬂuid status, and competent and detailed machine operation.
Irrespective of membrane type, all ﬁlters in the “virgin” state have small solute SC values of 1, and these values are typically not reported by dialyzer manufacturers. SC values for solutes of larger molecular weight are more applicable and manufacturers frequently provide data for one or more middle molecule surrogates, such as vitamin B12, inulin, cytochrome C, and myoglobin. As is the case for solute clearance, the relationship between SC and solute molecular weight is highly dependent on membrane mean pore size.

Clark Renal replacement therapy (RRT) is required in a signiﬁcant percentage of patients developing acute kidney injury (AKI) in an intensive care unit (ICU) setting. One of the foremost objectives of continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is the removal of blood solutes retained as a consequence of decreased or absent glomerular ﬁltration. Because prescription of CRRT requires goals to be set with regard both to the rate and extent of solute removal, a thorough understanding of the mechanisms by which solute removal occurs during CRRT is necessary.
