1. Hemodialysis
Hemodialysis is performed by extracorporeal circulation of the patient's blood such that the dialysate solution and the blood is separated only by a thin membrane which allows water soluble molecules to exchange. Since the dialysate contains low concentration of many of the toxic metabolite s and potassium , this method effectively lowers the concentration such molecules in blood.

2. Hemodialysis
In this type of dialysis , the patient's blood is passed through a tube into a machine that filters out waste products. The cleansed blood is then returned to the body.
