Dialysate monitoring

Haemodialysis 6

 

Conductivity

  • Conductivity is the amount of electrical current conducted through a dialysate and reflects electrolyte concentrations
  • A constant voltage is applied across two electrodes 1 cm apart in the dialysate flow. If the concentration of electrolytes changes, the voltage will change
  • Conductivity should be  between 12-16 mS/cm (millisiemens per centimeter). The greater the number of ions, the greater the conductivity of the dialysate
  • Conductivity can be affected by temperature, or concentration of acid to base
  • alarms will stop dialysate flow if conductivity is outs of limits
