We modified the urea reduction ratio (URR) equation to correct the effects of ultrafiltration and intradialytic urea generation on the delivered dose of hemodialysis: mURR = [1 - (R/1 + 2*UF/BW) + 0.01*t] x 100% where mURR is modified URR, R is postdialysis plasma urea nitrogen (PUN) to predialysis PUN ratio, UF is ultrafiltrate volume in liters, BW is postdialysis body weight in kilograms, and t is dialysis session length in hours. The equation was validated against 145 hemodialysis treatments on 33 stable maintenance dialysis patients. The mURR values obtained closely predicted single-pool Kt/V (spKt/V) values. In contrast to conventional URR, the range of spKt/V values at each mURR value is narrow over a wide range of UF, t, and R values. Based on the mURR equation, mURR values of 64%, 70%, and 76% are mathematically equivalent to spKt/V levels of 1.0, 1.2, and 1.4, respectively. This equation can be a useful bedside tool to quantify hemodialysis dose.
