When do we need artificial kidneys?

Answer :

In case of kidney failure, an artificial kidney is needed. The kidneys lose the ability to remove the nitrogenous waste products from the body or their activity is highly reduced. They fail to perform their vital function. There are many reasons for kidney failure such as injury, infection and reduced blood flow that lead to accumulation of wastes in our body. Hence, an artificial kidney can be used.
