What Is Haemodialysis?

Haemodialysis, like a kidney, is a treatment used to filter the waste and water from a human’s body. It is an artificial way of cleaning the blood by removing the toxins. When a person suffers from chronic or acute chronic renal failure than “Dialysis,” is used to perform the functions of the kidney.

How Does Haemodialysis Work?

We at BLK Haemodialysis centre are equipped with 32 state-of-the-art haemodialysis machines and a special ultra-pure double RO system. 

Step 1: Firstly, a dialysis nurse or technician inserts two needles in the patient’s arm from where the blood goes into a filter through a soft tube connected between the needle and the dialysis machine.

Step 2: The dialysis machine then pumps the blood through the filter and returns the filtered blood back into the body. During the process, the machine keeps a regular check on the patient’s blood pressure and controls 

  • The blood flow process in the filter
  • Removes the fluid from the body 

When is Dialysis Needed?

A person needs dialysis when both of his kidneys are unable to remove enough wastes and fluid from the blood, which means only 10 to 15 percent of the kidney is functioning. A patient might experience symptoms like: 

  • Nausea 
  • Vomiting 
  • Swelling 
  • Fatigue 

However, it may not necessary that a patient will experience these symptoms; he/she can still have a high level of wastes in their blood that may be toxic. A doctor can evaluate a patient on the basis of current health conditions and if required, will advise the use of dialysis.
