Wearable Artificial Kidney Renart-PD

A pre-production model of the first domestic wearable artificial kidney Renart-PD and the results of its trials are presented. The trials involved regeneration of model solutions and biological fluids (spent solution for peritoneal dialysis). It was shown that the regeneration procedure could continue up to 24 h with a mean mass rate of metabolite removal comparable to that provided by healthy kidneys.
