Dialyzer Specifications and Substitution Chart for Visiting Patients
This chart provides a list of commonly used dialyzers and BC equivalent dialyzers. This may help reduce the need for patients having to bring their own dialyzer if the dialyzer they use is not in common use in BC.
This poster is intended for posting in areas of high patient traffic. The purpose is to (1) raise awareness amongst patients that dialysis units support travel; and (2) that patients need to plan their travel ahead.
