-it is a type of renal replacement therapy 
-it used mainly in renal failure where the kidneys no longer perform their function 
-dialysis as term meant using principles of diffusion osmosis in medical practice 
-by diffusion the solvents (the dissolved particles) moving from high concentration to low throughout semi permeable membrane 
-on the other hand by osmosis solutes move from low to high concentration
-the ease and speed if moving depend on the size of the particles which refer as Dalton on and the size of membrane bores as well other factors
