Caption: Haemodialysis. Female patient lying on a bed with tubing on her arm during kidney dialysis (haemodialysis). On her finger is a pulsemeter which monitors the pumping of blood around her body. Each of the haemodialysis tubes is attached to a blood vessel by a cannula. One tube passes blood into an artificial kidney machine that removes waste products and excess water. The cleansed blood is then returned to the patient through the other tube. Haemodialysis is used when the kidneys fail to remove waste, toxins and excess water from the blood. Healthy kidneys may also be transplanted.
