Dialysis generally refers to removing waste (diffusion) and excess water (ultrafiltration) from the patient’s blood. It is also aimed at maintaining a healthy balance of certain chemicals such as potassium and sodium in one’s blood. This, in turn, helps to achieve normal blood pressure.

Generally, doctors differentiate between two types of dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. The earlier implies the use of an artificial kidney (hemodialyzer) to remove waste and surplus fluids from patient’s blood. The latter, in contrast, is aimed at cleaning the patient’s blood inside their body by inserting a plastic tube (catheter) into the patient’s abdominal area (peritoneal cavity) which is filled with dialysate during the treatment.

Who needs dialysis?

Potential patients for dialysis are those, who suffer from kidney malfunction, i.e., chronic kidney disease, acute kidney injury, or kidney failure (when about 80 to 90 per cent of kidney function is lost), etc.
