Clinical Haemoperfusion

  • J. F. Winchester
Part of the New Clinical Applications Nephrology book series (NCNG, volume 6)


Haemoperfusion, the direct contact of blood with sorbents within cartridges, has been used as an adjunct to dialysis for uraemia, and in drug intoxication, hepatic encephalopathy and for a variety of other conditions which will be outlined.
