• People who have kidney failure, or end-stage renal disease (ESRD), may need dialysis.
• Injuries and conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes and lupus can damage kidneys, leading to kidney disease.
• Some people develop kidney problems for no known reason.
• Kidney failure can be a long-term condition, or it can come on suddenly (acute) after a severe illness or injury. This type of kidney failure may go away as you recover.
What happens before Hemodialysis?
Before you start hemodialysis, you’ll undergo a minor surgical procedure to make it easier to access the bloodstream. You may have:Arteriovenous fistula (AV fistula): A surgeon connects an artery and vein in your arm.
Arteriovenous graft (AV graft): If the artery and vein are too short to connect, your surgeon will use a graft (soft, hollow tube) to connect the artery and vein.
• AV fistulas and grafts enlarge the connected artery and vein, which makes dialysis access easier. They also help blood flow in and out of your body faster.
• If dialysis needs to happen quickly, your provider may place a catheter (thin tube) into a vein in your neck, chest or leg for temporary access.
• Our Consultant will teach you how to prevent infections in your fistula or graft.
What happens during Hemodialysis?
• Removes blood from a needle in your arm. Circulates the blood through the dialyzer filter, which moves waste into a dialysis solution. This cleansing liquid contains water, salt and other additives.
• Returns filtered blood to your body through a different needle in your arm.
• Monitor your blood pressure to adjust how fast blood flows in and out of your body
What happens after Hemodialysis?
Some people experience low blood pressure during or immediately after hemodialysis. You may feel nauseous, hypoglycemia (dizzy or faint). Other side effects of hemodialysis include: • Chest pain or back pain.
