Kidney Dialysis

Kidney Dialysis - Your Diagnosis and Treatment

Dialysis is a process of removing waste products and excess fluid which build up in the body when the kidneys are not functioning adequately. Dialysis uses a membrane as a filter and a solution called dialysate to regulate the balance of fluid, salts and minerals carried in the bloodstream. The membrane may be man made as in haemodialysis or natural as in peritoneal dialysis. Bright Kidney Centre is one of the best dialysis center in Hyderabad, that runs under the expertise and supervision of Dr. Kavitha Gone.

How does haemodialysis work?

Blood is taken from the body to be cleaned in a filter known as a dialyser (artificial kidney). A dialyser works on the principle of blood flowing along one side of a semi-permeable membrane made of cellulose or a similar product, with the dialysate flowing along the other side. The dialysate contains a regulated amount of minerals normally present in the blood, but in renal failure they are present in excess. The membrane has tiny holes of different sizes so that the excess fluid and substances in the blood pass through at different rates, small molecules quickly and larger ones more slowly, to be taken away in the dialysate until a correct balance in the blood is achieved.
As only a very small amount of blood can circulate from patient to dialyser at any given time, blood needs to circulate from patient to dialyser and back to patient for about 4 hours. Treatment is usually 3 times per week.
.

Blood is carried from the patient to the dialyser and returned back to the patient  through dialysis lines (plastic tubes) which are connected to the patient.  The treatment is usually 3 times per week.for about 4 hours.
