Center of Hemodialysis
Hemodialysis is a method of extrarenal purifying of the blood (outside the body), in result of which the toxic products of metabolism are removed from the body and impaired electrolyte and water balance is normalized.
Hemodialysis is based on the principle of penetration of substances through the semipermeable membrane, which allows to remove the toxic substances and products of metabolism from the blood. The necessity for hemodialysis occurs in case of severe kidney disease or severe intoxication.
