Haemodialysis is a replacement therapy: it is a method for removing waste products from blood when the kidneys of the patient suffer from irrevocable renal failure.
This procedure is accomplished with a mechanical device called artificial kidney: it is connected to the patient with an extracorporeal blood circulation device -lines and filter.
The procedure is based on physics: a diffusion process allows the exchange of particles between two compartments, the blood and the dialytic fluid that are separated by a semipermeable membrane, which is assembled within the filter. In this way, contaminants go from blood flux to dialytic fluid and are removed.
On the contrary, vital substances are not removed: this produces optimum results for the patient well-being. The procedure is absolutely safe thanks to the advanced equipment we make use of and the multiannual experience of our staff.
