The kidneys perform the important task of purifying the blood. Chronic kidney disease and acute kidney injury (also known as acute renal failure) can prevent the kidneys from being able to filter and remove waste and extra fluid from the body.
When you are diagnosed with a disease that requires hemodialysis you will need to speak to a medical expert about your options. Hemodialysis is a process that uses a man-made membrane (dialyzer) to carry out the function of the kidneys. Usually it requires you to be connected to a filter by tubes that are attached to your blood vessels. Your blood is then gradually pumped from your body into the dialyzer, where waste products and extra fluid are removed. The filtered blood is then pumped back into your body.
Dialysis is a procedure that takes time so it is very important that you choose a hospital and a medical team that understands your needs. At the Asiri Dialysis Unit we do everything in our power to ensure that your stay is restful and conducive to a smooth recovery.
