  • Dialysis is a procedure to remove waste products and excess fluid from the blood, when the kidneys stop working properly.
  • The main purpose of dialysis is to replace impaired renal function.
  • Dialysis is Necessary – Because Approximately 1.5 lit of blood are filtered by a healthy person’s kidney each day. We could not live, if waste products were not removed from our kidneys.
  • When kidneys are not working properly – There will be buildup of waste in the blood.
  • Without Dialysis, the amount of waste products in the blood would increase and eventually reach levels that would cause coma and death
  • Removes waste water by circulating blood outside the body, through an external filter – Dialyzer.
