Dialysate purification systems have not been established in developing countries and so high flux dialyzers have not been introduced in such countries.
The trial of dialysate purification systems in Cambodia.
[Methods and Results]
Blood Purification Center of Sen Sok International University (SSIU) Hospital was established at March 1st in 2010. The dialysis was performed by using low flux dialyzers. At July in 2011, the endotoxin(ET) measurements and bacterial counting of the tap water, reverse osmosis water and dyalysate were checked in order to reveal whether high flux dialyzers could be used or not. The results of dialysate ET were 309, 246, 395 EU/mL and the bacterial counting were 800, 800, 900 cfu/mL. At July in 2013, the ET retentive filter (ETRF) was installed and the line after the ETRF was changed into the new one. Until December in 2013, no ET and bacteria were determined. We have started to use high flux dialyzers since December 14th in 2013.
The equipment of the blood purification center of SSIU hospital is not old. So it is thought to be easier to perform dialysate purification. But the hints were grasped to perform dialysate purification in developing countries by these methods.
