The kidney – a nearly irreplaceable organ!

The human kidneys are small, biological marvels with a fascinating design that fulfill a vital function. The failure or inability of the twin organs to function over a significant period can be life-threatening. Treating kidney patients only recently became a success story as hemodialysis became routine in the 1960s. Now, with the help of technical perfection, dialysis guarantees a certain quality of life and longer life expectancy for an increasing number of kidney patients.

What is Hemodialysis?

During hemodialysis, the patient’s blood is passed through a filter outside the body and then reintroduced to the patient. Tiny pores in the filter membrane filter out toxins while vital components, such as proteins, are left in the blood. Excess water can also be removed through these tiny pores. The process is controlled by a dialysis machine that is equipped with a blood pump and monitoring systems that ensure safety. The machine can also administer drugs, e.g. Heparin, to prohibit blood clotting during the treatment.
