Hemodialysis is a renal replacement therapy in patients with end-stage renal disease. It is based on the mechanism of diffusion and removes from the patient’s body low molecular weight uremic toxins and excessive fluids. HD sessions occur thrice weekly, 4 hours each time. In every HD session, the patient’s blood is transferred through special tubes to the HD dialyzer (membrane) where the uremic toxins are removed and then it returns to the patient’s body.
Euromedica Dialysis Centre accepts enquiries and welcomes patients all year around and from all over the world since August 2018.
The artificial kidney unit of Euromedica Dialysis Centre operates at modern premises suitably adapted to cater for treating patients with chronic kidney failure. The top priority of the unit is to provide treatment of the highest standard.
Our dialysis units offer high quality dialysis in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Our aim is to provide a timely, safe and smooth service for visiting patients on Rhodes during the Holiday.
Hemodiafiltration (HDF) is a form of renal replacement therapy that utilizes convective in combination with diffusive clearance, which is used in classical hemodialysis. Compared with the classical hemodialysis, HDF removes more middle-molecular-weight solutes.
Overview — Conventional hemodialysis clears uremic toxins mostly by diffusion driven by the thermal energy of the uremic toxin molecule. Clearance of the toxin by diffusion is inversely proportional to the radius of the toxin molecule. As a result, conventional hemodialysis clears larger toxin molecules less effectively than smaller ones. Clearance of larger toxins is limited by their low rate of diffusion, even if they can easily pass through the pores in the dialyzer membrane.
In contrast, hemodiafiltration (HDF) increases the clearance of larger toxins by large-volume ultrafiltration. Ultrafiltration carries toxins through the membrane pores by fluid flow, also known as convection. As long as the toxin molecule can easily pass through the membrane pores, the rate of transfer is independent of the molecule size.
