Hemodialysis Treatment

Hemodialysis is one of the methods of renal replacement therapy and blood from the body is removed continuously through hemodialysis and traversed via an artificial kidney that is cleaned.

Although healthy kidneys perform a variety of roles in the body, their most prominent function is the production of urine. When kidney function drops below 10 to 15 percent, the kidneys are not capable of removing blood and create urine. This results in the build-up of toxins inside the body, together with the excess fluid. We are fortunate to live in an age where there are therapies and treatments that are able to restore the functions of kidneys and help keep your body healthy. One kind treatment for renal replacementor a therapy which replaces kidney functionit is known as Hemodialysis. Hemodialysis is a treatment that removes waste, filters excess fluid and regulates electrolytes (sodium potassium, bicarbonate and calcium), chloride, magnesium, and the phosphate).

How often does hemodialysis take place?

It is necessary for blood to flow through the dialyzer for a few hours in order to effectively cleanse the blood and cleanse the body of fluids. The traditional, in-center hemodialysis procedure typically occurs 3 times per week, for approximately four hours per session. Your doctor will decide the duration of your treatment take, which is usually 3 to 5 hours however, the most commonly is four hours. Discuss with your doctor the length of time you'll be receiving hemodynamic therapy. Many people think dialysis is for a long time, however healthy kidneys operate 24/7 all week long and dialysis has to complete the job in just 12 or less hours per week.
