Subject: RE: BS: Dialysis, a step into the unknown.
Noreen, here in the US many clinics reuse their dialyzers and or have their patients on a three hour protocol. This protocol allows them to have an additional shift of patients with the same staffing.
The excuse for dialyzer reuse is that it eliminates "first use" syndrome, which actually seems to be a non-issue. Both cases put more money into the pockets of the clinic operators.
