Kidney Dialysis Lab Investigation
Create a Model of a Kidney Dialysis Machine!
Research-Based & Developed with Support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
With this hands-on lab investigation, students create a mini-model of a dialysis machine to investigate how it removes wastes from the blood of a patient with kidney failure. They observe which substances diffuse from the bloodstream into the fluid in the dialysis machine. They also determine what substances should be added to the dialysis fluid to maintain homeostasis.
Includes 1 Lab Station.
