Auto-dialysis - Definition


Definition


Auto-dialysis means that a patient conducts his own dialysis, which is a technique of blood filtration through a membrane. It is called auto-dialysis when an individual suffering from a chronic, terminal renal deficiency needs a substitute to function for his kidneys through dialysis, takes charge of his own dialysis in a local center, and not in a hemodialysis center where it would be taken care of by medical personnel. Auto-dialysis centers group together several patients of the same region and are often situated near their homes. The patient is often trained in the dialysis technique, so is more autonomous and in a less clinical environment.
