Evolution of dialysis techniques for acute renal failure (ARF) in Spain. A, The percentages of different modalities of dialysis performed in Spain in the early 1980s. B, The same information obtained a decade. At this latter time, 90% of conventional hemodialysis (HD) was performed using bicarbonate as a buffer. These rates are those of a developed country. In developing countries, dialysis should be performed according to the available facilities and each individual doctor's experience in the different techniques. PD—peritoneal dialysis; CRRT—continuous renal replacement technique; UF—isolated ultrafiltration. (A, Data from the EDTA-ERA Registry [11]; B data from the Madrid ARF Study [1].)
