Finding the right filter has never been easier!
The database contained on this interactive CD-ROM brings together a wealth of information which is unique in this form. Put together by renowned authorities, it catalogues the most recent data on the membranes and filters currently on the market: each year, there will be a completely revised and updated version.

The CD-ROM offers various possibilities:
1. Users can search for filters with certain properties, entering information such as membrane material, sterilization type, surface area, ultrafiltration coefficient or producers. Search criteria can be modified throughout, thus giving an opportunity to refine the search at every step. Once the search process has been completed, a list of those hemodialyzers will appear which match the search criteria, providing an overview of what is currently available on the market.
2. Alternatively, one may set a target Kt/V and search for those dialyzers which are most suited to deliver the requested Kt/V with the patient parameters specified, thus enabling the physician to determine the best alternative available.
3. Once a hemodialyzer has been selected, a simulated dialysis treatment can be conducted by entering patient data, which will result in predicted urea kinetic values in terms of Kt/V.
4. In addition to the database proper, this CD-ROM also features extensive background information in the form of a preface, a detailed description and evaluation of the data presented as well as an article on the structure, design and biocompatibility of membranes and hemodialyzers.

Representing a most useful guide in the selection and evaluation process of a hemodialyzer, this CD-ROM will help the physician to find the most suitable filter in order to tailor treatment according to criteria of biocompatibility, clinical indication and adequacy of therapy and to control treatment efficiency.
