Equipment for Hemofiltration

  • B. von Albertini


For hemofiltration to be a practical alternative to routine hemodialysis, it must be delivered by fail-safe automated equipment, which provides the essential functions of the treatment and, at any time, maintains the patient’s safety without the necessity of human intervention. A variety of hemofiltration machines are available which perform this task reliably and accurately.
