Greece is the ideal destination for dialysed patients as it combines both high quality infrastructure and an idyllic atmosphere to revitalize.
Hemodialysis is the artificial process of keeping a safe level of certain chemicals (potassium, sodium, bicarbonate) in the blood, removing waste and unwanted water and helping control blood pressure. In simple words, dialysis is the artificial replacement for lost kidney function.
There are kinds of acute kidney failure which get better after the treatment or after a short time of treatment until the kidney gets better, whereas in chronic kidney failure, the patient needs dialysis in programmed time. There are two different types of dialysis treatment:
- Hemodialysis, where the blood is cleaned outside the body by using a special designed machine
- Peritoneal dialysis, where the blood is cleaned inside the body
Hemodialysis is the most common method used to treat the kidney failure. Although hemodialysis is a more effective and simplified process compared to earlier years – due to the usage of simpler and more compact dialysis machines – the most significant effort is made from the patient, his/her health care team and the family.
