What is the acceptable range for dialysate pH?
Furthermore, what is an acceptable test result when verifying the absence of residual bleach?
Any color (preferably clear) indicating 0.5 ppm or below on the appropriate testing strips.
Likewise, what does conductivity measure in dialysis? The conductivity of the dialysis fluid is a parameter well suited for measuring the total concentration of salt. The conductivity is easy to measure with reasonable accuracy and the measuring device is usually very stable over time. It can be used for both proportioning and monitoring of the concentrate intermixing.
Secondly, what is the maximum level for bacteria in water used for dialysis?
Additional studies and outbreak investigations demonstrated that the incoming water and final dialysis fluids should not exceed a maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 100–1000 CFU because of possible pyrogenic or septicemic complications (37,38).
What is AAMI in dialysis?
Water and equipment used for dialysis meets the water and dialysate quality standards and equipment requirements found in the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) publication, “Dialysate for hemodialysis,” ANSI/AAMI RD52:2004.
