Dialysis vascular access is a surgically created vein used to filter toxins, waste and extra fluid out of a person’s blood as treatment for kidney failure. Considered a patient’s lifeline, vascular access allows for roughly
a pint of blood to be filtered every minute. Access options include:
- Arteriovenous (AV) Fistula
- Arteriovenous (AV) Graft
- Venous Catheter
- Peritoneal Dialysis
Come and learn as Dr. Major explains each access option, short-term vs. long-term use, and how to prevent problems that require further treatment.
