Hemodialysis, a complex technique
Review of the work
Hemodialysis is one of the treatments that is carried out in chronic kidney patients in stages IV and V. This treatment is the most used in patients with chronic kidney disease, apart from this there are two other treatments such as dialysis peritoneal and transplantation, but the most used treatment is hemodialysis. To be able to carry out a hemodialysis session, basic elements are needed such as the hemodialysis machine, purified water and a venous access to be able to perform the extracorporeal technique.
