An ultrafiltration technique to remove excess metabolic products from the blood. The technical aspects are similar to those of hemodialysis in that the blood flows from the patient to the hemofilter and is then returned. Depending on the type of filter membrane used, essential materials may be removed from the blood. It is important to replace the excess crystalloids removed.
