A Guide To Dialysis

Beaumont Hospital - Video 2 Dialysis - A guide for patients from Animo Communications on Vimeo.

Dialysis is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function (renal replacement therapy) due to renal failure. Dialysis may be used for very sick patients who have suddenly but temporarily, lost their kidney function (acute renal failure) or for quite stable patients who have permanently lost their kidney function (stage 5 chronic kidney disease).
