Despite expected decreases in reimbursement for dialysis procedures, single-use dialyzers are expected to grow in prevalence. Single-use dialyzers do not require reprocessing machines or the labor requirement necessary for the reprocessing of reuse dialyzers. In 2016, the United States is one of the only developed countries that still use reuse dialyzers for a large fraction of the total hemodialysis treatments performed.
In the process of hemodialysis, the dialyzer performs the essential function of the kidney. During a hemodialysis treatment, the dialyzer will clean and remove the toxic substances from the blood. Blood can only be cleaned physically, not chemically. The patients blood is essentially filtered inside the dialyzer, and is channeled through the hollow fibers of the dialyzer. The walls of the hollow fibers consist of an ultra-thin membrane and various physical processes enable the removal of harmful molecules, while the critical elements of the blood are retained. The more exact a dialyzer and its membrane are at separating the important molecules from the harmful ones, the more effective the hemodialysis treatment will be.
