Other than a possible negative reaction to citrate, what would determine the use of hematrate rather than citrasate?

Also, other than allergy to heparin

Thanks!

I have never heard of "Hematrate". Can you provide any info on it?

Hematrate is also an acid concentrate used for the dialysis machines. It has the same, if not exact, percentage of chloride, magnesium, dextrose, etc. that Citrasate has, but without the citrate addition

Sorry, I forgot to mention that "hematrate" is a lesser known term for NaturaLyte. I honestly do not know the background to how the term came about.

Anyway, as mentioned before, NaturaLyte is basically Citrasate, without the citrate. Question is, besides anticoag issues, what factors determine the use of which dialysate?
