1Department of Nephrology and Dialysis and 2University Department of Medicine, Sestre milosrdnice University Hospital, SUMMARY – Drug dialyzability is determined by complex interaction of many factors, including the char- acteristics of the drug and the technical aspects of the dialysis system. Numerous aspects of dialysis pre- scription, including some elaborated in this article, have the potential to influence drug removal by dialysis.
Care must be exercised when applying information from published reports of drug dialyzability to the individual patient. In order to provide the best information for individual patients, healthcare professionals should become familiar with the dialysis membranes utilized at their healthcare facility, and interpret liter- ature information in that light. This article includes a table on dialyzability of drugs during conventional and high-permeability dialysis, and during peritoneal dialysis.

NO indicates supplemental dosing is not required.
