Title: Method and apparatus for selectively reversing flow between a dialyzer and a patient access

Abstract: A diverter for selectively providing fluid communication between ports to a common chamber is disclosed. The diverter includes a resilient deformable common chamber having a plurality of ports. Upon deforming the common chamber along a given line, fluid communication between selected ports is precluded, which flow preclusion is used to effectively reverse a flow direction in a circuit connected to the diverter.
