What I fail to understand in this is, though both citrate anticoagulation procedures are well accepted, who decides which procedure to go with? Is it possible to go with 4 percent TSC as an anticoagulant, and the only reason for the addition of dextrose is to compensate for the glucose loss, then dextrose if required can be given by a different line?
Moreover, if dextrose is already present in the dilution fluid, then why add additional dextrose? The cost of therapy will only increase. Why can't we just use 4 percent TSC in WFI straight away?
