Dialysis is the process that filters and purifies blood with a machine to substitute normal function of kidneys. Impaired functioning of kidneys leads to accumulation of excess water, impurities and waste products in the body.  Dialysis is generally preferred when kidney are fail to perform its normal function. Acute kidney injury and chronic kidney diseases leads to dialysis. Dialysis removes the waste products, excess salts and other impurities from the blood that are accumulated due to the improper function of renal system.  Dialysis is of two types those are peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis

Acute renal failure, previously called acute kidney injury, is a sudden and unexpected loss of kidney function that develops within a week. Acute renal failure (formerly known as acute kidney injury) is a disease distinguished by the acute loss of the kidney's eliminatory function and is commonly diagnosed through the accumulation of urea and creatinine or reduced urine output, or both. Acute kidney injury may lead to a number of kidney problems, including high potassium levels, metabolic acidosis, changes in body fluid balance, uremia, also effects on other body systems ultimately leads to death. People who have experienced acute kidney injury may have high incidence of chronic kidney disease in the future. Controlling measures includes treatment of the root cause and supportive care, such as kidney transplantation.

End-stage renal disease also termed as chronic kidney diseases (CKD) comprise conditions that damage kidneys and impair their ability to keep you hygienic by abnormal function. On conditionkidney disease gets worse; wastes can accumulate to high levels in your blood and make you feel ill. You may develop issues like anemia, high blood pressure, weak bones, nerve damage and poor nutritional health. Also, kidney disease elevates your risk of having coronary disease and heart problems. These problems may occur slowly for a long period of time. Diabetes and high blood pressure are the two main causes of chronic kidney disease.

Kidney Transplantation is the way toward putting a solid kidney which assumes control over the work of cleaning blood by performing surgery in patients with kidney failure. It is delegated living contributor transplantation or perished benefactor transplantation on the wellspring of organ of the giver. Kidney transplantation is the decision of treatment when kidneys fall flat alongside hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. kidney transplants are arranged into two sorts: those that originate from living contributors and those that originate from inconsequential givers who have kicked the bucket (non-living donors).Kidney transplant should be possible to patients who : withstand the impacts of surgery, immunosuppressant pharmaceutical, transplant has great shot of accomplishment, medicines after transplantation. Not at all like numerous different sorts of organ gift, it conceivable to give a kidney while you are alive on the grounds that you just need one kidney to survive.

Hemodialysis is a process used to filter and purify the blood with a mam made membrane called dialyzer. It is one of the most widely used renal replacement therapy.  In this process an artificial kidney (hemodialyzers) used to filter salts and waste products from the blood. Hemodialysis will be done in three to five hours and three times per week is sufficient. However hemodialysis treatment will be available more frequent and shorter sessions.

Peritoneal dialysis is the renal replacement therapy used to filter out waste products and purifies blood. Peritoneal dialysis needs a surgical incision at the bottom of the abdomen. Peritoneal dialysis uses the membrane of peritoneum to filter blood instead of man-made membrane or machine. As the peritoneum contains numerous blood vessels like kidney so it mimics the function of kidneys.  Peritoneal dialysis need to be done more frequently then hemodialysis.  Peritoneal dialysis need a solution called dialysate used to carry out the dialysis process.

Vascular access means a vein created surgically to pass the blood outside the body for filter and purifying the blood in renal insufficiency patients.  Vascular access is a surgical procedure involves inserting a plastic catheter in the blood vessel. In dialysis patients the most appropriate site has to be determining for catheter insertion.

The two type of vascular access designed for long-term dialysis treatments are an arteriovenous (AV) fistula, which connects an artery and a vein and an AV graft, which is a looped tube. For short-term use, a catheter may be inserted into the large vein in your neck.

Kidney cancer (also called renal adenocarcinoma or renal cell cancer) is a disease in which cancer cells are found in the lining of tubules in the kidney. We have two kidneys, behind the peritoneum one on each side of the spinal cord, just above the waist. Small tubules in the kidneys purify the blood. Unabsorbed products formed as urine. The formed urine passes in to bladder through long tube called bladder. The urine stored in bladder until leaves from body through urethra. Kidney cancer perhaps remains clinically occult for most of its course. Immunomodulatory agents and targeted therapy are the standard of care in metastatic disease patients. Kidney cancer: The most common malignant disease affecting kidney is kidney cancer. One of the most common causes for kidney cancer is smoking.

Renal or bladder stones are the crystals of such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid. If a kidney stone obstructs in urethra or the ureter, cause hematuria (blood in the urine), constant and severe pain in the back or side, fever, vomiting, or chills. Nephrolithiasis (Kidney stones): Minerals in urine form stones, which may build big enough to block flow of urine. Most kidney stones pass through urine on their own but some kidney stones are too large they cannot pass and should be treated.

Bladder stones are hard masses of minerals in your bladder. Bladder stones create when urine in your bladder gets to be concentrated, bringing about minerals in your urine to take shape. Concentrated, stagnant urine is regularly the aftereffect of not having the capacity to totally exhaust your bladder. On the off chance that bladder stones are sufficiently little, they can go all alone with no detectable indications. In any case, once they get to be bigger, bladder stones can bring about incessant inclinations to urinate, excruciating or troublesome pee and hematuria.

Renal nutrition is concerned with the special nutritional needs of kidney patients. Renal nutrition is concerned with ensuring that kidney patients eat the right foods to make dialysis efficient and improve health. Dialysis clinics have dieticians on staff that who help patients plan meals. Standard guidelines are: eating more high protein foods, and less high salt, high potassium, and high phosphorus foods. Patients are also advised on safe fluid intake levels.

Most patients on haemodialysis need to adjust their diet. The major change in diet is usually a reduction in foods high in potassium, phosphate and sodium (salt). The dietician will give you individual guidance about how to achieve you dietary needs. Assessment of dietary intake, especially protein, is monitored from time to time to ensure an adequate protein and calorie intake, which is an important part of maintains a good quality of life and good health. However, if you are overweight an attempt to achieve an ideal body weight may be undertaken working within the restrictions of a renal diet.

Nephrology nurses use the nursing process to care for patients of all ages who are experiencing, or are at risk for, kidney disease. Nephrology nursing involves both preventing disease and assessing the health needs of patients and families. Care spans the life cycle and involves patients who are experiencing the real or threatened impact of acute or chronic kidney disease; therefore nephrology nurses must be well-educated, highly skilled, and motivated. These nurses also deal with every organ system in the body, calling for a holistic approach to patient care that is both challenging and rewarding. Driven by technological and educational advances, nephrology nursing continues to be a dynamic field with a wide variety of career opportunities for nurses at all levels.

Various Complications during Dialysis are related to vascular access in patients on hemodialysis and to abdominal catheters in patients using continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). These vascular access complications are similar to those seen in any patient with a vascular surgical procedure (eg, bleeding, local or disseminated intravascular infections, vessel (graft) occlusion). The native peripheral vascular system is also affected with higher rates of amputation and revascularization procedures, and a peritoneal dialysis catheter subjects patients to the risks of peritonitis and local infection, because the catheter acts as a foreign body and provides a portal of entry for pathogens from the external environment

Glomerular disease reduces the ability of the kidneys to sustain a balance of certain substances in bloodstream. Normally, the kidneys should filter toxins out of the bloodstream and emit them in the urine, but should keep red blood cells and protein in the bloodstream. In individuals with glomerular disease, red blood cells and protein might be excreted into the urine, while toxins may be retained.

Glomerular disease can occur by itself or may be associated with a fundamental medical condition that affects other organ systems, such as lupus nephritis, diabetes, or certain infections. Glomerular disease can develop rapidly or develop gradually over a period of years. Treatment of glomerular disease depends upon its cause and type.

The renal system maintain homeostasis in the body avoiding significant modifications in the balance of fluid electrolyte or acid–base parity until the Glomerular filtration rates reduced to below 25 ml/min because of  a series of versatile changes, both Renal and extra renal. With dynamic decrease in renal capacity these components are overpowered bringing about unsettling influences in water digestion system adding to hypernatremia and hypernatremia. The modified control of sodium transport causes irritated volume status including volume over-burden and exhaustion. The rate of Hyperkalemia and metabolic acidosis is more incessant in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) with GFR beneath 10 ml/min. In this survey article we will endeavor to audit the renal and additional renal adjustment components looking after liquid, electrolyte and corrosive base equalization in endless kidney illness alongside variables which cause disappointment of these instruments.
