Following the introduction of clinically usable artificial kidneys by Kolff,1 Alwall,2 Murray3 and Skeggs and Leonards,4 and the pioneering clinical investigations by Merrill,5, 6 hemodialysis has been widely employed in the treatment of acute renal failure§ according to certain conventional indications: (1) definite clinical uremia, and/or (2) hyperkalemia with myocardial potassium intoxication, when either or both progress in spite of a suppressive medical regimen, including cation exchange resins for potassium removal.7-15 Such dialysis treatment usually results in a more nearly normal blood chemical pattern and a gratifying clinical improvement, at least in the absence of significantly symptomatic underlying disease.16
