TORREZ SALAZAR, Jeanneth et al. Reducing the rate of urea "As marker of fitness in dialysis patients in the H.O.N. N° 2 C.N.S. - 2009. Gac Med Bol [online]. 2010, vol.33, n.1, pp.17-22. ISSN 1012-2966.

The Permanent CKD (IRCP) has been a worldwide increase, which has led to increased demands of dialysis services and kidney transplantation, as necessary, the introduction of systems for monitoring the actual dose dialysis "ade-quacy" in order to prevent the complications of chronic uremia and renal transplantation access in the best conditions, that is why we propose to measure the "rate of urea reduction (URR) 65-70%. The purpose of this study is to assess the "Quality of Dialysis" we provide dialysis patients the CNS on both HD and SD modes, using the URR with sampling (pre and post Diálisis Urea). It is an transversal and descriptive study. In the Dialysis Unit are a total of 75 patients, of whom 63 are in HD, 12 PD. The URR achieved in HD was 51-69% and> 70% by DP was <50%. The best URR> 70% was reached in the female, 4 hrs, three times a week, with a permanent catheter with a pump flow (QB)> 300, with a refuse <6 dialyzer with interdialytic weight <1 kg, with Hb 11-13 g / di, with no activity limitations according to the Karnofsky index, is associated with better quality of life. Over 60% of the patients studied achieved a URR <70% (KDOQI). So we can conclude that the U.R.R. is a useful tool to determine adequate dialysis, but only as an absolute valué, does not correlate with the prognosis of patients also meet international standards recommended by other documented evidence.
