          Abstract

          The quantification of dialysis in critically ill acute renal failure (ARF) patients requires a unifying expression that can establish kinetic equivalence amongst patients treated with irregular or frequent intermittent haemodialysis (IHD) schedules or with differing renal replacement therapies. EKRjc is a generalized form of the equivalent urea renal clearance (EKRc), and represents the equivalent continuous urea clearance that will result in the given time-averaged concentration of urea, for the given amount of urea removal. The suitability of EKRjc for the measurement of dialysis dose in this setting is examined.
