For people suffering from chronic kidney failure and kidney dysfunction, dialysis (or hemodialysis) is recommended as a means to provide pure blood to the body parts and remove toxins from the system. It is a complex procedure and one must consult a medical professional or nephrologist for treatment of kidney problems. Apart from pumping blood to the patient's body, the dialysis machine also monitors blood pressure and controls the rate of removal of toxins from the body. The filtering system consists of membranes or tubes which allows the waste to pass through it and exit the body. A session of hemodialysis usually lasts between three to four hours, required at least three times in a week.
Often termed as an ‘artificial kidney', treatment of kidney failure with dialysis is a widely recognized for its effectiveness. Many people who are in the need for dialysis are treated under the supervision of nurses or professionals. Often patients who are undergoing dialysis learn to live with it and get equipped with the care required for smooth functioning. Most patients who are undergoing dialysis live a normal life with some even transporting the machine along with them for the treatment of kidney problems.
Dialysis is also classified into two categories, based on the condition of the kidney disease and/or the severity of kidney failure.
