The arteriovenous (AV) graft part 5

AV graft hemodialysis 1

 

At each hemodialysis treatment:

  • Make sure that the nurses can see your access and needles at all times during your treatment
  • Unless instructed otherwise by your nephrology team, it is important that needles are put into your graft in different areas for each treatment
  • At the end of each treatment, the needles are removed. Apply light pressure for 10 minutes (or as instructed by your nephrology team) using the fingers from your other hand at each needle site to promote clotting at the site
  • If bleeding start again once you leave your dialysis unit, apply light pressure for 20 minutes and if bleeding does not stop, go to nearest emergency departement
