Advanced Care in Nephrology, Urology and Transplantation

Our Kidneys help maintain normal salt and water balance in our body by removing the liquid waste from the blood. In an adult of normal weight (60-65kg), about 1200ml of blood flows through both the kidneys every minute (this is about 20-25% of heart output). Therefore, normal functioning of kidneys is critical for maintaining the body’s balance.

      What is Haemodialysis

      Hemodialysis is a process by which blood is purified by taking it out of the body with the help of a machine and passing it through a ‘Dialyser’ (Artificial Kidney). Blood is taken out of the body via a needle (A.V.F.). In the dialyser, blood and dialyzing fluid flow on either side of a semi permeable membrane. This removes the toxic waste and excess water from the blood. The pure blood is returned to the body. This process of taking out and putting in the blood continues for 3-4 hours. The dialysis has to be repeated at least 3 times a week.
