Why Do Hemodialysis Patients Get Infections

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-01-29 03:09

Why Do Hemodialysis Patients Get InfectionsHemodialysis is a kidney replacement treatment to filter the wastes and toxins from the blood by using a man-made membrane. And you are connected to a filter by tubes attached to your blood vessels. But hemodialysis patients have an increased risk of getting infections. Why? In the following, you may find the reasons.

Why do hemodialysis patients get infections?

Because the process of hemodialysis requires frequent use of catheters or insertion of needles to access the bloodstream. An infection can easily get into the blood stream through the catheters.

Another reason is that the hemodialysis patients have weakened immune systems due to long term use of immunosuppressor, which increase their risk for infection.

How to prevent infection?

Heparin is used as a locking solution in the catheter after dialysis to help prevent infection, and keep the dialysis catheter working for a longer period of time. There are also other ways to prevent infection.

Before dialysis, you should keep the area where you perform dialysis as clean as possible. And washing your hands thoroughly is the most important thing you can do to prevent infection. In addition, it is important for you to clean your access site thoroughly with antibacterial soap before dialysis needles are inserted and not to touch the cleaned puncture site with your bare hands. For more information about how to prevent infection, you can leave a message or send email to kidneyabc@hotmail.com.

How to get rid pf hemodialysis?

Infection is just one of the side effects of hemodialysis. If you would like to get rid of hemodialysis, you should improve kidney function. Hot compress therapy can inhibit the inflammatory response, dilate the blood vessels and degrade the extracellular matrix. This therapy can prevent the kidney fibrosis and repair the damaged kidneys. Enema therapy and medicated bath are also often used with hot compress therapy to help cleanse the wastes and toxins from the body. As long as your kidney function recovers to certain degree, you do not need to take dialysis and worry about its side effects.
