Dialysis machine, 1970

It looks like something cobbled together from old washing machine parts.

From Morris Fishbein, M.D. (Editor).  The New Illustrated Medical and Health Encyclopedia.  New York, NY:  H.S. Stuttman Co., Inc. 1970.

Since this encyclopedia included material from the Modern Home Medical Adviser going back to 1935, these photos may be earlier than 1970.  Still, we've clearly come a long way.  For one thing, nurses no longer have to wear goofy hats.
