Portable Equipment for Artificial Blood Purification

Attempts toward miniaturization of apparatuses for artificial blood purification (artificial kidney) have been made in recent years. A portable artificial kidney apparatus can be based on hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis apparatuses. Available foreign portable apparatuses for artificial blood purification are discussed in this work. The advantages and disadvantages of the apparatuses are discussed.
