The process of diffusion 1.2. Blood cells are too big to pass through the dialysis membrane, but body wastes begin to diffuse (pass) into the dialysis solution. 3. Diffusion is complete. Body wastes have diffused through the membrane, and now there are equal amounts of waste in both the blood and the dialysis solution.
The process of ultrafiltration in PD 11. 22.Blood cells are too big to pass through the semi-permeable membrane, but water in the blood is drawn into the dialysis fluid by the glucose. 3.Ultrafiltration is complete. Water has been drawn through the peritoneumby the glucose in the dialysis fluid by the glucose in the dialysis fluid. There is now extra water in the dialysis fluid which need to be changed.
The dialysis membrane is an artificial one: Dialyser
The dialyser removes the excess fluid and wastes from the blood and returns the filtered blood to the body
