Brief Summary:
The inner ear contains transporters that are responsible for maintaining a strict homeostatic environment, necessary for transmission and transduction of sound waves. Hemodialysis affects the body's composition including the aspects regulated by these transporters (pH, osmolarity, Na, K). We wish to observe if hemodialysis affects hearing, and if so, by which parameters.
