During an average week of hemodialysis, a patient can be exposed to 300-600 liters of water, providing multiple opportunities for potential patient exposure to waterborne pathogens.Therefore it is essential to test the water used for dialysis purpose for chemical as well as biological parameters. The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) have established chemical and microbiological standards for the water used for dialysis.
