Hello, folks. My friend has been urgently administrated to the hospital and he went straight to dialysis. I would really like to know what is required in a kidney dialysis. I have never read about this before. I have just heard about this procedure. I hope someone will help me. Thanks.

Hello to you too. Usually, people with acute kidney failure require dialysis. Not all cases of failure need dialysis. There are several factors that will decide if this method will be used. Acute indications for dialysis would be: metabolic acidosis, hyperkalemia, fluid buildup, uremic complications like pericarditis or encephalopathy, etc. Patients who have acute poisoning with a drug that could be dialyzable are also candidates. Those drugs would be: lithium or aspirin. There are also chronic indications. They are: symptomatic renal failure and low glomerular filtration rate. I hope this meets your requirements. Bye!
