Hemodialysis

Dialysis is the process of cleaning the blood of waste products and excess fluids. It is used for patients whose own kidneys are no longer functioning well-enough on their own. Dialysis does not replace or restore the patient’s own kidneys but serves as a substitute. Generally, when patients with chronic kidney disease progress to Stage V (reflecting 15% or less of total kidney function) they require either dialysis or transplantation. Dialysis treatments may be performed either in-center or at home (home dialysis).

In-center dialysis is a form of hemodialysis in which the patient goes to an outpatient center usually thrice weekly. The dialysis is performed by removing small amounts of a patient’s blood and putting it through a filter and then returning it to the bloodstream. These treatments are usually 3-5 hours and performed at a regularly scheduled time.
