Some of the materials in the dialysis fluid are compared to normal blood plasma and uremic plasma (urine) in the previous table. Uremic plasma has abnormally high levels of urea and other substances in abnormal concentrations due to kidney failure. Match the reason for each solute concentration of the dialysate.

concentration in the uremic plasma is too low, so the dialysis fluid has higher levels of this solute so that it diffuses into the blood.


is a toxic substance, so none of it is placed in the dialysis fluid so that it will diffuse from both plasmas into the dialysis fluid



levels are normal in the uremic blood, but the person is under stress so the extra of this solute will diffuse into the blood



has a lower concentration in the dialysis fluid so that the excess, in the uremic plasma goes out of the blood into the dialysis fluid





1.   
Potassium ion

2.   
Bicarbonate ion

3.   
Glucose

4.   
Urea
