Caption: Kidney dialysis. Patient undergoing kidney dialysis treatment. In this treatment, called haemodialysis, blood is carried from the patient to a dialysis machine (centre right), where it is filtered to remove waste and excess fluid, before being returned to the body. This cleaning of the blood is usually done by the kidneys. If they are damaged, waste products build up in the bloodstream, which can be fatal. If the kidney failure is chronic, the patient may receive a kidney transplant.
