Methods:The present study is a cross over design in which 28 patients from two hemodialysis centers in Isfahan. All patients underwent hemodialysis sessions as follows: 4 routine and 4 Stepwise Dialysis Solution Profile and in each session the KT/V was measured by the measuring equipment in the online manner. The results were analyzed by paired&in depended T test.


Result: the mean values of dialysis adequacy were as follows: 1.237 in routine and 1.385 in Stepwise Dialysis Solution Profile methods that there was a statistical difference between routine method with profile (p=0.001).
