A resin hemoperfusion column was evaluated for the treatment of nine patients with profound, life-threatening drug intoxication. The column contained 500 g of an uncharged resin, Amberlite XAD-2. The resin has a crosslinked, polystyrene, macroreticular structure with particular surface attraction for lipid-soluble, large molecular weight substances. In five patients blood was pumped through the resin hemoperfusion column at a flow rate of 200 ml/min for 2 hr; four patients had glutethimide intoxication, and one had butalbital intoxication. In four other patients the bloodflow rate through the column was 300 ml/min for 3 hr; two patients had secobarbital intoxication, one ethchloroynol
