DIALYSIS
ACCESS OPTIONS

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.
