Anyone have an answer for why the so-called standard for setting the minimum UF on a dialysis machine seems to always be taught as 300? this would be when you are not taking any
fluid off. There does not seem to be any documentation why this seems to be the minimum you should always set. I am thinking it is because:
- may increase backfiltration
- may screw up the machine pressures otherwise
- the machines have this as the lowest spec for UF
Anyone with any info let me know. We are lookin to write some policies and need standards. Thanks!!
