This therapy mimics the function of kidneys by diverting blood to a machine which cleanses it. The equipment removes waste products and excess fluid from the blood to keep the body functioning normally. For patients with chronic kidney problems dialysis is a must, and anything that can reduce stress is a bonus.
It is, therefore, a great comfort for patients to know that they don’t have to travel to get dialysis therapy. On-site dialysis in a nursing home reduces travel costs and the worry of getting to an appointment on time.
The most common type of dialysis, hemodialysis, involves attaching a tube to a needle in your arm. Blood is then transported down the tube and into a machine that filters it. Once it is filtered and cleansed, the machine returns it to the arm via another tube. Peritoneal dialysis uses the inside lining of your abdomen as the filter instead of a machine.
Side effects of dialysis therapy may include itchy skin, muscle cramps, infections, and exhaustion. That is why it is crucial to ensure that you have professional, hygienic, on-site care when undergoing this treatment. Anticipating any problems before, during and after dialysis ensures patients can enjoy a good quality of life.
