Dialysis
Dialysis is a treatment used for people whose kidneys don’t work properly. There are two types. Hemodialysis involves an artificial kidney to remove waste. It accesses blood through the arm, leg, or neck. Peritoneal dialysis involves a catheter in the stomach area. A special fluid is pumped into the abdomen where it draws waste out of the bloodstream. Most dialysis treatments are given at a hospital or doctor’s office, though long-term dialysis can be administered at home.
