Simplified equations for monitoring Kt/V, PCRn, eKt/V, and
Adv Renal Replacement Ther
(Oct) 2:295-304 1995
This paper is the most recent compilation of simplified formulas for urea
kinetic modeling. It includes the 2nd generation logarithmic formula for
Kt/V, made even more accurate by using modeled or anthropometric V instead of
weight, and the new "rate equation" that corrects for urea rebound. The
article also discusses the Smye method of predicting urea rebound, and a set
of new formulas by Daugirdas and Depner for estimating PCRn from the
predialysis BUN and either the single-pool or equilibrated Kt/V.
