Dialysis Access Options
Dialysis vascular access is a surgically created vein used to filter toxins, waste and extra fluid out of a persons blood as treatment for kidney failure. Considered a patients lifeline, vascular access allows for roughly a pint of blood to be filtered every minute. Access options include:
Arteriovenous (AV) Fistula
Arteriovenous (AV) Graft
