Analysis of Water Used For Haemodialysis In Dialysis Centres, South East Nigeria – How Adequate?

Water purity is important for effective haemodialysis. We analysed the water used for haemodialysis in eight centres in South East Nigeria for its adequacy. All these centres failed the standard of the Association for Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI).


Background: Standard water purity is one of the essential ingredients in achieving the goals of haemodialysis. However, water purity, though cardinal to the outcome of haemodialysis is probably the most neglected aspect of renal replacement therapy with haemodialysis.
