What happens during a haemodialysis treatment?

Haemodialysis

 

Before each treatment your blood pressure and weight are checked. Your health will be assessed. During each treatment you sit or sleep next to the machine.

Two needles attached to soft tubing are put into your fistula or graft – one is to take the blood and the other to return the blood. The needles are then connected to the tubing on the machine. You are now ready to start dialysis.

The pump is turned on and the tubing takes the blood in a circle from you to the filter (dialyser) and back to you. Only a small amount of your blood is out of your body at anytime. At the end of the treatment all your blood is returned to you and the needles are removed. Haemodialysis is not painful.
