Haemodialysis (or hemodialysis) is an extremely effective treatment that uses an artificial kidney to cleanse waste products and excess water and salt from the body of patients with kidney failure.

A tube takes blood out of a surgically created vein in the arm (or a catheter placed in a vein in the neck).  The blood flows through the dialysis machine where it is purified and returned to the body by another tube.
