Dialysis machines are used for those with an acute disturbance in kidney function or progressive but chronically worsening kidney function. The latter form may develop over months or years, but in contrast to acute kidney injury is not usually reversible and dialysis is regarded as a "holding measure" until a kidney transplant can be performed or sometimes as the only supportive measure in those for whom a transplant would be inappropriate.

Kidneys  performs the following functions

  1. Remove the waste and water from the bloodstream, excess salt and other chemicals are filtered by the blood to maintain the appropriate
    balance required for the body.
  2. Balance the chemical composition of the body
  3. Assist in producing Red Blood Cells (RBC) which carry oxygen in the bloodstream, reduction of RBC count
    results in anaemia and ultimately weakening of the body.
  4. Assist in maintaining the blood pressure, high blood pressure, which strains the heart.
  5. Assist in bone development, by maintaining the correct level of calcium
    and phosphate in the blood and bones.
