What is Hemodialysis (HD)

The word “hemo” refers to blood, hemodialysis is a process that balances blood chemistry (electrolytes) and filters waste and fluid from the blood

This therapy is typically performed at a dialysis center, although it can be performed at home

Two needles are inserted into your arm for each treatment

  • One withdraws the blood
  • One returns the filtered blood to your body
     

The blood travels outside the body through tubing and passes through a filter on a dialysis machine

  • The dialysis machine pumps the blood through the filter – called a dialyzer
  • The filter cleans the blood
  • The machine prepares the dialysate, monitors the treatment and pumps the blood

The clean blood is returned to your body


How Is Blood Removed and Replaced?

A fistula is the surgical linking of an artery to a vein providing access to blood vessels

A graft is tubing that is surgically placed under the skin, linking an artery to a vein
