HEMDIALYS : HUR KAN DIALYSBEHANDLINGEN OPTIMERAS FÖR ATT PÅVERKA PATIENTERNAS LIV MINIMALT? (English)
Abstract [en]

2006 my mother had to start her dialysis treatment due to renal failure caused by a congenital defect on her kidneys. With this mandatory readjustment to her life she accepted all changes that were made. 

Patients with renal failure (when the kidneys fail to adequately filter the blood from waste) are increasing all over the world and 2020 it is calculated to exceed 3.8 million. The cause for renal failure could be one of many, but it is often seen as an outcome of heavy dehydration, severe infection or long-term diabetes which could explain the increasing number of patients.

The most common treatment for renal failure is hemo dialysis. This treatment is an effective way to clean the blood outside the body in an artificial kidney connected to the patient by a hemo dialysis machine. The patients are spending 6-7 hours 4 days a week at hospitals to clean their blood which is comparable with an 80% employment. By adapting the hemo dialysis to where the patient live, I want to show that there are better ways to effectively treat patients.
