Dialysis solutions Flag: Two new Flags (‘Haemodialysis’ and ‘Peritoneal dialysis’) have been added to assist renal dialysis units benchmark. The current 12-month spend on dialysis solutions in secondary care was £7.3million.
Peritoneal dialysis solutions and haemofiltration solutions are included within the editorial policy of dm+d. However, the acidic solutions (such as Renalyte® and Citrasate®) and cartridges of sodium bicarbonate (such as BiCart®) are not within the current remit of dm+d. Each solution may be presented in a range of containers suitable for use in different settings, and these are often incompletely described and mapping can be challenging.
