A machine functioned as kidney for five days
Test user, a baby, was born with cystic fibrosis. She had been struggling with an on-again, off-again infection that had destroyed her kidney over the course of two years.
She’d been taking antibiotics through vein, but then she came down with flu. This triggered coughing fits so rough and hard that she fractured her ribs.
Test user then ended up at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto without working kidney.
