Synopsis: 
Water purity is important for effective haemodialysis. In this study, 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).

 ABSTRACT

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