how do dialysis works?

Expert Answer:

The principle of dialysis is:

The blood from an artery in the patient's arm is made to flow into the dialyser of a dialysis machine made of long tubes of selectively permeable membrane which are coiled in a tank containing dialysing solution. As the patient's blood is passed through the dialysing solution, most of the wastes like urea present in it pass through the selectively membrane cellulose tubes into the dialysing solution. The clean blood is pumped back into a vein of the patient's arm.
