hemodialyzer

 [he″mo-di´ah-līz″er]
an apparatus by which hemodialysis may be performed; blood is brought in contact with a semipermeable membrane on whose other side is a dialysate solution of such composition as to secure diffusion of certain elements out of the blood. Popularly called artificial kidney.

(hē'mō-dī'ă-lī'zĕr),
A machine for hemodialysis in acute or chronic renal failure; toxic substances in the blood are removed by exposure of blood to dialyzing fluid (dialysate) across a semipermeable membrane.
Synonym(s): artificial kidney
