Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Paediatric dialysis unit. Eight-year-old patient doing school work while in a dialysis treatment unit. Kidney dialysis, or haemodialysis, is required when the kidneys are unable to filter waste products from the blood. The patient's blood flows out of their body through a tube into a dialysis machine (blue), or dialyser. This acts as an artificial kidney, removing waste products and excess fluid from the blood. The cleaned blood is then returned to the patient through a second tube. The procedure takes several hours and needs to be repeated several times a week.

Release details: Model release available. Property release not required.
