Flummoxed by Flux: The Indeterminate Principles of Hemodialysis

The magnitude of the transport is quantified by the phenomenon of ‘flux’, a finite parameter defined as the volume of fluid (or permeate) transferred per unit area of membrane surface per unit time.
In HD, flux is defined by the ultrafiltration coefficient (KUF; mL/h/mmHg) reflecting the hydraulic permeability of the membrane. However, in HD, the designation of flux has come to be used in a much broader sense and the term is commonly used interchangeably and erroneously with other measures of membrane separation processes, resulting in considerable confusion.
In this webinar, today´s concepts and terminology on “flux” will be addressed and discussed in detail, from diverse angles.
