Experience with Resin Hemoperfusion

  • Jerry L. Rosenbaum


In 1948 Muirhead and Reid introduced the concept of a “resin artificial kidney” using anion (Deacidite) and cation (Amberlite IR-100H) exchange resins to remove urea from the blood of uremic dogs by hemoperfusion (1). The resin capacity for urea and creatinine was quite limited and more effective adsorptive spectra are offered by charcoal adsorbents for uremic retention products.
