Calculate Kt/V - t

Dialyzer Urea Clearance (K): L/min
Dialysis Time (t):
Height:

Diabetes?
Urea Volume Distrib (V):
: liters
Kt/V:

Calculate URR

Pre-dialysis BUN: mg/dL
Post-dialysis BUN: mg/dL
Post-dialysis Weight:
Ultrafiltrate Removed: liters
Urea Reduction Ratio: %
Kt/V:

Formula:

Watson:

Hume-Weyers:

Chertow's Bioelectrical Impedance:

Mellits-Cheek (kids):

Urea Reduction Ratio:

URR =
(1 -
post-BUN ) x 100

pre-BUN

Daugirdas:

Kt/V =
-ln( post-BUN  - 0.03) + (4 - 3.5 x  post-BUN ) x  UF
