HE WORKS AT JOB, HAS BLOOD PURIFIED TWICE A WEEK Man Kept Alive by Robot Kidney A-HI iiao.

The device is keeping the * man alive, it was disclosed '. f by Dr. Milton Rubini, chief ·', of the metabolic section of \ · the center. '· i ] Each visit to the hospital J · lasts about 12 hours. Dur- · -J ing that time the patient re- J i laxes on a bed while his »'. blood is detoured through · · the device. .'

The devic* cleanses the blood of waste products-something the natural kidneys would do if they were functioning. a · a a THE TREATMENT is painless. Without it. death would ensue from uremia. Dr. Rubini said 1,000 persons in Los Angeles die each year or uremia. Twenty-five per cent of these victims are persons under 40 with families, he added. "AH could be saved." Dr. Rubini said during a medical lecture at Long Beach V e t e r a n s Administration HospiUH. The problem is one of money, he said. Treatment with the artificial kidney costs about $10.000 a year. « a » · DR. RUBIM said the VA Center already has spent (40.000 to operate its new kidney treatment center. Another $40,000 was (pent to toot up for the project. Some kidney-failure patients are being treated by a procedure known as peritoneal dialysis, he continued. This costs about (5,000 a year and also entails twice-weekly visits to the hospital. In this procedure, t plastic tube Is inserted into the abdomen through a permanent "artificial beDy button." A special fluid is injected. The peritoneum (tinging of the abdomen) is thus used as a permeable membrane between the patient's blood, loaded with wastes, and the external solution. Wastes from the blood diffuse through the membrance into the solution, which is then withdrawn and replaced with fresh fluid until the blood · · a · TROUBLE IS, infection eventually results from the use of this procedure, so peritoneal dialysis can be considered only a stopgap measure for patients with chronic kidney failure. Dr. Rubini said. · Meanwhile, medical science is anxiously awaiting the time until kindey transplants become routinely successful. When a way is found to overcome the tissue - rejection p r o b l e m . donor kidneys win maintain life in those who must now depend on an artificial kidney. t jzzfifil btiutf id tlit imart Inter- bcaini brit wt ten cater III 1 spvklirf, lidf. it- NO noun DOWN Only It A Week a) LrsalNotica NON-RESPONSIBILITY NOTICE Nottt 13 ifrtby tiTtn tr «i« wderslrnfd Floyd W.
