F180 for first use

Is it common to use a high-flux dialyzer for a pt first time (ever) run? I know there is the advantage of high clearance and ability to dialyze out microglob, but wouldn't a F180 use be too aggressive?

Thoughts?

it would depend on patient size, weight etc. as well as labs, middle molecule contaiminants dialyze off better with more porous membrane. Basically all the f160 180 200 are high flux, there are very limited conventional (low coefficent dialyzers left).
