Kidney machine clog?: I am not sure what you are referring to by a dialysis patient's clogging of a kidney machine. Patients can have their dialyzer (d), the artificial kidney, during dialysis. This normally occurs when the patients are not getting enough Heparin during dialysis and their d's clot ending their use of that d. If that is not the answer you were looking for, ask the patient's nephrologist youyr question.
