Complications Related to Hemodialysis

Elfeituri, Ahmad Muftah (2018-04-15)

Healthy kidneys clean your blood and remove extra fluid in the form of urine. They also make substances that keep your body healthy. Dialysis replaces some of these functions when your kidneys no longer work. There are two different types of dialysis, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. But here we’ll talk about hemodialysis. Hemodialysis is an artificial kidney used to remove waste and extra chemicals and fluid from your blood. To get your blood into the artificial kidney, the doctor needs to make an access into your blood vessels. This is done by minor surgery to your arm or leg. Hemodialysis has many side effects either effecting the urinary system or other systems


People with chronic renal disease won’t be able to filter their blood there for they’ll need to undergo a procedure called hemodialysis. In hemodialysis, a dialysis machine, a special filter called an artificial kidney, or a dialyzer, are used to clean your blood. As much as it helps the human body to filter out all the chemicals and unwanted substance, the patients undergoing this procedure may face other complications discussed in this report
