Hemodialysis is the process that replaces an individual’s excretory system when the kidneys are unable to perform their function efficiently.
How is Hemodialysis performed?
In Hemodialysis, a special cylindrical filter that performs the function of the kidneys and acts as an artificial kidney known as a dialyzer, as well as a dialysis machine, is connected to the patient’s body in order to clean the blood.In order for the blood to enter the dialyzer so as to be cleaned, the doctor needs to create an access to your blood vessels by performing a minor surgery, usually in the arm.
How does the Dialyzer function?
The Dialyzer is a cylindrical filter which consists of two parts, of which one part is for the blood while the other is filled with a washing fluid known as Dialysate. The two parts of the Dialyzer are separated by a thin semi-permeable membrane through which excess fluids, solutes and toxins are exchanged according to their concentration gradient, thereby cleaning the blood.Small waste products such as potassium, creatinine, urea and other fluids that are present in the blood are separated by this procedure.
At our centre, a typical Hemodialysis procedure is usually performed for 3 days a week, with 4 hours dedicated to each sitting per week.
The procedure of Hemodialysis is performed in a safe and comfortable environment. We perform procedures at Nipro JMI Dialysis Centre Ltd.with the aid of the most advanced technology in the industry.
