Dialysis Detaile Procedure

Time:  2015-07-07 08:52

Dialysis is one of choices for patients who step into kidney failure to maintain their life. Dialysis is the artificial process of eliminating waste (metabolites) and unwanted water (ultrafiltration) from the blood. Our kidneys do this naturally. Some people, however, may have failed or damaged kidneys which can't carry out the function properly - they may need dialysis.

In other words, dialysis is the artificial replacement for lost kidney function (renal replacement therapy). The blood circulates outside the body of the patient - it goes through a machine that has special filters. The blood comes out of the patient through a catheter (a flexible tube) that is inserted into the vein. The filters do what the kidney's do; they filter out the waste products from the blood. The filtered blood then returns to the patient via another catheter. The patient is, in effect, connected to a kind of artificial kidney. Patients need to be prepared for hemodialysis. A blood vessel, usually in the arm, needs to be enlarged. Surgery is required for this. The enlarged vein makes the insertion of the catheters possible.

Hemodialysis usually lasts about 3 to 4 hours each week. The duration of each session depends on how well the patient's kidneys work, and how much fluid weight the patient has gained between treatments.

Though dialysis is preferred by many patients who have already stepped into kidney failure, they want to get rid of it, because dialysis has many side effects, for example, fatigue, low blood pressure, invasive staphylococcal infections, muscle cramps, itchy skin. They often fell feeble, they can’t do anything they want, some of patients think they become the burden for their relatives, so some of them have depression. Most importantly, dialysis can’t treat the root of disease.
