How are kidney dialysis patients affected by chloramine?

0

Chloramine can diffuse through the reverse osmosis membrane filters utilized by some hemo-dialysis machines, and patients undergoing kidney dialysis could be adversely affected. To prevent this, dialysis equipment must be adjusted to remove chloramine and the treated water must be monitored to measure the final chloramine concentration. Dialysis facilities must review their dialysis treatment equipment to determine its continued safe operation.
