What is hemoperfusion?

Hemoperfusion is a method of purifying the blood outside the body. Like other out-of-body procedures, such as hemodialysis (HD), hemofiltration (HF), and hemodialysis (HDF), blood is transferred from the patient's body to the device, filtered, and then routinely transferred to the patient using intravenous blood.

Hemoperfusion is an extracorporeal blood purification procedure that involves the passage of whole blood with anticoagulants through a device, usually a column (cartridge), containing absorbent particles and used to remove toxins in poisoning, and in some cases Used to remove cytokines in septic patients.

One of the important applications of hemoperfusion is its use in the treatment of critically ill patients with Covid 19, which can be very effective and saving due to the mechanism it offers.

Although perfusion is effective in eliminating toxins, it is rarely used in the treatment of poisoning these days, and among other methods, it is less used in the treatment of poisoning, although it can be very effective.

In hemoperfusion, as mentioned, whole blood passes through a cartridge that contains fixed absorbent particles. Toxins with molecular weights between 100 and 40,000 daltons bind to the particles and are removed as blood leaves the column. Higher molecular weight solutes are absorbed less efficiently.

There are two major types of adsorbents: activated charcoal and resins (such as hydrocarbon polymers, polystyrene). Charcoal has a higher affinity for water-soluble molecules, while resins have a greater affinity for fat-soluble molecules.

Hemoperfusion is used to complement existing blood purification technologies, such as hemodialysis and/or continuous renal replacement therapies (CRRT), in the management of drug or chemical toxicities, and hepatic encephalopathy.
