A thorough knowledge and understanding of the principles underlying the preparation and the clinical application of hemodialysates can help us provide exemplary patient care to individuals having end-stage renal disease. It is prudent to be conversant with the following: (a) how each ingredient in a dialysate works, (b) the clinical circumstances under which the concentration of an ingredient can be altered, and (c) the special situations in which unconventional ingredients can be introduced into a dialysate. The potential to enrich dialysates with appropriate ingredients (such as iron compounds) is limited only by the boundaries of our imagination.
