Bicarbonate Hemodialysis Concentrate

In order to use bicarbonate as the basic anion the dialysate concentrate is made in two parts. Part A, (acid concentrate) contains all of the electrolytes (except sodium bicarbonate) and dextrose as required, while part B contains sodium bicarbonate and sodium chloride in powder form. Appropriate proportions of A and B are pumped into two proportioning system were they are mixed with water to produce the final dialysate concentrations. A and B dialysate are then mixed together to form the final dialysate.
