Transcript of Kidney Failure.
Improves quality of life and reduces risk of dying from kidney disease.
Will not require hours of daily dialysis treatment.
Major surgical procedure
Long wait for the organ itself
Chance of rejection
Necessity to take anti-rejection medication for the rest of life.
Risks both during and after the surgery(e.g. infection, bleeding, damage to the surrounding organs, death). Blood flows into the machine Blood is seperated from a special fluid by a semi-permeable membrane water, glucose, salts, and other substances that should be in the blood As blood passes through tubes , substances in fluid diffuse through the membrane The amount of substances in the blood can be regulated by controling their concentration in the fluid Blood flows back into the body e.g. Urea diffuses out of the blood and into the dialysis fluid because there is no urea in it. High concentration Low concentration diffusion They regulate the body's water needs and balance the concentration of the blood , getting rid of waste products- especially urea. Concentration of substances in blood can be regulated
Quickly avalilable to patients who need it
Can be done for years on end
Requires only a small surgical procedure to create a vascular access point
Amazing procedure but not yet as amazing as the kidney itself.
Patient must spend a lot of time hooked up to the dialysis machine (between 3-10 hours daily or every two days) Dialysis centre Home Abdominal cavity is filled with dialysis fluid through a catheter. Fluid is held within the abdomen for a perscribed period of time The peritoneal lining acts as a membrane to allow excess fluids and waste products to diffuse from the bloodstream into the dialysate Used dialysate in the abdomen is then drained out and discarded
