Chronic Disease does not develop spontaneously and the patients rarely have total recovery. But thanks to the progress of medical science, many chronic disease patients can live longer, but it is still uncertain whether such patients have a good quality of life. The survivors usually have the emotional baggage. They need special care and attention to lighten their emotional burden. These psychological aspects are often forgotten by the health service officers.
To remove the toxins and substances not needed by the kidney failure patients we should have a vascular access - the exit and entry of blood from the body to the artificial kidney and hemodialysis machine. The washed blood is returned to the patient's body.
The vascular Access enables blood to continuously flow into the machine during the hemodialysis process.
