High creatinine level and suggested Haemodialysis few days is it acute renal failure or a Chronic renal failure. Haemodialysis is used in both but acute renal failure kidney function recovers and in chronic patient are on intermittant Haemodialysis.Another way is Peritoneal Dialysis.
In dialysis blood and dialysate is filtered through a semipermeable membrane and water and waste products are removed that is it act as artificial kidney.
In acute renal failure canula is placed in juglar or femoral veins and in chronic renal failure we make ArterioVenous fistula in left arm which develop in 1 month time. Then regular HD maybe performed.
Some time renal Transplantaion may be carried out to get rid from Hemodialysis in Chronic failure cases .For which a Nephrologist consulted .
