Multiple Use of Hemodialyzers

  • Norman Deane
  • Robert J. Wineman

Abstract

Repeated hemodialysis treatment for chronic renal failure was initiated by Belding Scribner and colleagues (1) in 1960. The earliest dialysis procedures included several features which were soon employed for multiple use of dialyzers. For example, Scribner rinsed the blood and dialysate compartments with water, and sterilized both compartments with formaldehyde, since components of the flat plate dialyzers were not sterile when assembled. The dialyzer remained filled with formalin until the time for dialysis, when it was flushed with saline to remove the formaldehyde. These steps resemble those now employed for multiple use of dialyzers.
