Fig I-1. Impact of solute clearance through ultrafiltration losses on the delivered dose of hemodialysis as measured by the Kt/V. The curves are derived from formal urea kinetic modeling assuming a 3-hour hemodialysis, no residual kidney urea clearance, and a volume of distribution of urea of 58% of body weight. Wt refers to net ultrafiltration losses as a fraction of final body weight. Reprinted with permission.142
