What is Haemodialysis?
In haemodialysis, a machine filters waste, salts, and fluids from the blood when the kidneys are no longer healthy enough to do the job properly. Hemodialysis (he-moe-die-AL-uh-sis) is a method of treating advanced kidney failure and can help you lead an active life despite kidney failure.
The patient who suffers from renal (kidney) failure needs haemodialysis. It is done when the patient's kidneys have stopped - or nearly stopped - working. The kidneys are the body's clear-out system, keeping the fluid and chemical substances that the patient wants and casting off what isn't always required. Kidney failure, if left untreated, will be deadly for the patient.

- The procedure at a dialysis center usually involves the use of a dialysis machine 3 times a week, with each session typically lasting around 4 hours. Patients must plan their life around these sessions.
- Because the sessions take place in a clinical dialysis center, patients may need to travel regularly for treatment. However, it is possible to receive training on how to use the devices at home.
- With home hemodialysis, patients can choose when and where they have dialysis sessions.
- Patients can also have dialysis at night. This can helps them have a normal routine and travel with the machine.
- If the patient is being treated in a dialysis center and is traveling to another country, you must arrange access to dialysis facilities in advance.
