The dialysis procedure determines profound changes in osmotic balance and rapid changes in fluid volumes and electrolytes concentrations in body compartments. .
Treatment customization can be obtained both choosing between using standard or alternative therapies and analysing the information coming from the parameters recorded by the dialysis machine.
An automatic control system will be developed analysing the available clinical data. First step in this directions will be the definition of new multifactorial indexes that will allows the evaluation of the treatment adequacy and of the patient conditions both at the beginning of the treatment and during the dialysis session. The power of these indexes will be evaluated at computational and clinical level.
