Treatment of Kidney Failure
When CKD progresses to an end stage, it is called kidney failure. In this case, there are two treatment options: dialysis and kidney transplant. The treatment's target is to keep the patient healthy and able to carry on with daily activities.
Hemodialysis mimics the kidney's function in cleaning and filtering wastes products and excessive fluid from the blood. The dialyzer filters your blood a small amount at a time, allowing wastes and extra fluids to pass from your blood into a cleansing fluid called dialysate. Each session of hemodialysis takes around four hours and the patient usually goes to the dialysis center for at least two to three times a week.
Before hemodialysis treatments can begin, the doctor will need to prepare the vascular access where blood can flow in and out of your body by using either of the following procedures:
Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD)
This technique uses dialysis fluids to filter wastes via catheter placed in your abdomen. This type of dialysis is more convenient for some patients and can be done daily at home or office.
