Are You or Someone You Know on Dialysis?
End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), also known as kidney failure, is the last, most severe stage of Chronic Kidney disease. Over 700,000 patients in the United States alone are diagnosed with ESRD and require dialysis treatments in order to survive.
Understanding all there is about dialysis includes having detailed information about the vascular access (dialysis access). Knowledge and education on the different types of dialysis access options, caring for an access, symptoms of, and treatment for, a dysfunctional access will make a difference in the quality of life on dialysis.
