Dialysis utilizing aqueous solutions is an established procedure in the treatment of poisoning due to water-soluble intoxicants. However, many frequently prescribed drugs with high lipid to water partition coefficients are not effectively removed by aqueous dialysate. To augment transfer of these compounds we developed a lipid dialysate system. Soybean oil was found to be effective and nontoxic. It is inexpensive and readily available. Due to the high solubility of these compounds in oil, only 1 to 5 gal need be used. Kiil, Klung, and twin-coil dialyzers have been successfully utilized. This technique has been effectively used in the clinical treatment
