Summary: Fundamental engineering principles are essential to consider when designing and developing artificial organs, especially the artificial kidney. Early contributors to the development of the artificial kidney were primarily chemical and electrical engineers who developed improved hemodialysis membranes, methods for producing large quantities of dialysis solutions and easy-to-use machines or dialysis delivery systems.
