One of the kidneys’ most important tasks is to maintain fluid and mineral balance by filtering the blood. Hemodialysis treatment is necessary when the kidneys of patients who have been diagnosed with chronical kidney failure cannot fulfill this task.
This is a procedure that enables the patients to apply the hemodialysis treatment on their own, in their homes, with their hemodialysis machines and a mobile water system.
Within the Hemodialysis Vascular Access routes, the best method for the patient is the AV Fistula. The AV Fistula operation is realized by connecting the artery and the vein in the forearm.
Catheter care training is provided to our patients who are receiving the hemodialysis treatment with Central Venous Catheter in our clinics. Furthermore, our patients are evaluated regarding catheter infections and their catheter care is performed after the treatment.
Our clinics employ a full-time dietitian. Our patients are regularly checked according to the monthly blood test results and special nutrition is prepared according to the analysis results.
Home hemodialysis (HD) is a treatment type for kidney failure, also called end stage renal disease (ESRD), that occurs at stage 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD).
