Renal failure is a condition in which kidney function is impaired for various reasons. The body is unable to excrete waste in the body normally in the urine. As a result, the retention of waste in the body.
Kidney failure symptoms can be divided into 2 types are
1. Acute renal failure if the underlying cause of renal failure is resolved renal failure. Usually return to work in time. 2-4 weeks, so if the patient needs treatment with hemodialysis It is usually a temporary treatment. until the kidneys recover.
2. Chronic renal failure need dialysis per week 2-3 times forever in order to improve the symptoms of general practice for patients with chronic renal failure who have been treated with hemodialysis.
Hemodialysis is to filter waste from the blood by using a hemodialysis machine. (or may be called “blood purifier“) This is a device that replaces the kidneys by using a filter to help clean the blood and facilitate the exchange of electrolyte wastes between the blood and the dialysis solution, taking one time at a time. 4-5 hours per week 2-3 Sometimes, even though there are tools that help replace the kidneys, they can't perform all the functions of the kidneys because normal people's kidneys work all the time, but patients on dialysis a week. 8 – 10 hours only In addition, the kidneys also perform other functions such as hormone production, which cannot be replaced by dialysis. Therefore, patients need to be treated with medicines together. Patients should understand how to behave properly for better quality of life and prevention. Complications.
Benefits from the hemodialysis machine.
Symptoms of salt and water congestion include swelling, breathlessness, tiredness, inability to lie down, heart failure. will improve quickly within 1 – 2 days.

How is hemodialysis done ?
It begins by inserting a needle into a special vein that must be prepared before surgery. Most commonly used veins in the arm. After the needle has been inserted, it is then attached to the blood line to bring the blood to the filter. When the blood passes through the filter The patient's blood will exchange various substances. with a special type of liquid called a dialysis solution After the blood has been cleaned Including adjusting the balance of minerals, the machine will bring good blood back to the patient. to reduce the concentration of waste products in the patient's blood.
Generally, the hemodialysis process takes one time at a time. 4 hours per week 2 – 3 Because every time a hemodialysis machine is required for dialysis, it must be done at a hospital or hemodialysis center. with nurses and specialist staff closely supervising.
