Hemodialysis is an extracorporeal (occurring outside the organism) blood purification process, which is used in case of renal failure. Intermittent hemodialysis is the most common method used as renal replacement therapy in patients with chronic renal failure. Treatment is usually done three times a week and lasts around four hours. There is also the acute dialysis with which acute renal failure is treated. In acute renal failure, renal function is lost suddenly. It usually occurs as a result of a multiorgan failure, shock conditions or high blood loss in the intensive care unit.
