Acute and chronic kidney failure, which can lead to death if untreated for several days or weeks, is an illness that is as old as humanity itself. In early Rome and later in the Middle Ages, treatments for uremia included the use of hot baths, sweating therapies, bloodletting, and enemas. Current procedures for the treatment of kidney failure include physical processes such as osmosis and diffusion, which are widespread and assist in the transport of water and dissolved substances.
The first scientific descriptions of these procedures date back to the 19th century and came from the Scottish chemist Thomas Graham, who became known as the Father of Dialysis. At first, osmosis and dialysis became popular as methods used in chemical laboratories that allowed the separation of dissolved substances or the removal of water from solutions through semipermeable membranes.Far ahead of his time, Graham indicated in his work the potential uses of these procedures in medicine. Today hemodialysis describes an extracorporeal procedure or procedure outside the body, for filtering uremic substances from the blood of patients suffering from kidney disease.
