Dialysis Purpose And Quality Of Life
Dialysis is in essential an artificial kidney. People whose kidneys no longer work well enough need to be connected to a dialysis machine, says Dr. Juan Kusnir, Nephrologist with Baptist Health South Florida.
The patient is connected to a dialysis machine and essentially does the job of the kidneys: cleans the blood, filters out all the toxins and regulates the electrolytes.
Dr. Samantha Taghva, Internal Medicine Physician at the same place, considers dialysis affects the patient's emotional life, because it affects his quality of life and his happiness.
