The separation of particles in a liquid on the basis of differences in their ability to pass through a membrane
The clinical purification of blood by this technique, as a substitute for the normal function of the kidney
separation of substances in solution by means of their unequal diffusion through semipermeable membranes
a method of separating molecules or particles of different sizes by differential diffusion through a semipermeable membrane; haemodialysis; To spell out alternatives, or to present either-or arguments that lead to a conclusion; Asyndeton
The process of cleaning wastes from the blood artificially. This job is normally done by the kidneys. If the kidneys fail, the blood must be cleaned artificially with special equipment. The two major forms of dialysis are hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.
a medical procedure to remove wastes and additional fluid from the blood after the kidneys have stopped functioning.
A method for removing waste from the blood when the kidneys can no longer do the job.
a medical procedure that uses a machine to filter waste products from the bloodstream and restore the bloods normal constituents.
Dialysis is a way of removing unwanted waste and water from the body. Waste is drawn from the kidneys into a liquid solution, which is then removed fr
a treatment for kidney disease that removes waste from blood. Used when the kidneys cannot perform their normal waste removal function. (Also called hemodialysis.)
A pathological deficiency in the oxygen-carrying component of the blood, measured in unit volume concentrations of hemoglobin, red blood cell volume, or red blood cell number.
the separation of molecules of different types from heterogeneous, dissolved or suspended substances.
The procedure to filter blood for patients with kidney failure, also used to remove absorbed toxins from overdosing and poisoning.
Cleansing the body of unwanted toxins, waste products and excess fluid by filtering them from the blood through a semi-permeable membrane.
Dialysis is a form of diffusion, i.e., a form of filtration to separate a crystalloid from colloid substance in a solution by interposing a semi-permeable membrane between the solution and water. ...
The medical term to describe 'artificial kidney treatment'. Do you want to know how dialysis works?
use of a machine that acts as an artificial kidney in cases of kidney damage
A mechanical process which works to correct the balance of fluids and chemicals in your body and remove wastes from your body when your kidneys are failing. (See hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis).
The kidneys continously filter toxins from the blood stream and release them from the body in urine. In renal failure, dialysis machines may be needed to perform the function of the normal kidney. Sessions of four to six hours, several times a week may be needed for haemodialysis. ...
the separation of smaller molecules from larger molecules. Hemodialysis is a purification of the blood of persons whose kidneys no longer function.
A mechanical process used to filter impurities from blood in response to renal (kidney) disease.
Removal of small molecules from a macromolecule preparation by allowing them to pass across a semipermeable membrane.
is a process employed to remove waste and toxic products from the blood in cases of renal insufficiency.
Process of removing toxins, or waste product of metabolism, and fluid from the blood. Normally the kidneys perform this function, but if they are damaged by disease or trauma, dialysis must be used.
A means of removing toxins and excess fluid from the body after the kidneys have failed to function. Once a patient’s kidneys have failed, it is impossible for the patient’s body to sustain life without regular dialysis treatments.
the passage of a dissolved substance through a membrane
Process used in kidney failure to remove from the blood accumulated wastes, toxins and excess fluid.
