Abstract

Summary: Haemodialysis in Australia is mostly practiced without many of the innovations seen in the USA and Europe. Home haemodialysis is common, high‐flux dialysis is uncommon and 4 h dialysis is the norm. This review examines the practice of haemodialysis in Australia, reflected in an annual mortality for dialysis patients of 11%. Issues of dialysis adequacy and biocompatibility are only just beginning to influence dialysis techniques in Australia and to this end the author's personal recommendations are put forward as suggestions regarding a sensible approach to Kt/v, biocompatibility, water quality and dialyser reuse.
