I am going to speak mainly about extracorporeal hemodialysis, that is, dialysis conducted with an artificial kidney as opposed to peritoneal dialysis. I am going to direct the majority of my comments toward the extraordinary technique of the maintenance of life in patients with chronic renal failure. I would like to break my discussion into three general areas: 1) a review of the historical development of the dialyzer, including some remarks on what happens at the membrane level; 2) a look at the results we are getting with this kind of hardware; 3) and a comment on some of the newer experimental dialyzers.
