Haemofiltration

Haemofiltration is a CLINICAL INTERVENTION.

Haemofiltration is a form of Renal Dialysis, mainly used in a critical care setting, which removes waste products from the blood by passing it out of the body through a set of tubing (filtration circuit) to a semi-permeable membrane (filter) and returning it, cleaned, to the body.
