NKF K/DOQI GUIDELINES 2000
These guidelines are based upon the best information available at the time of completion of the structured literature review. They are designed to provide information and assist decision making. They are not intended to define a standard of care, and should not be construed as one. Neither should they be interpreted as prescribing an exclusive course of management. Variations in practice will inevitably and appropriately occur when clinicians take into account the needs of individual patients, available resources, and limitations unique to an institution or type of practice. Every health-care professional making use of these guidelines is responsible for evaluating the appropriateness of applying them in the setting of any particular clinical situation.
