Emodialisi

L'emodialisi è una terapia fisica sostitutiva della funzionalità renale somministrata a soggetti nei quali essa è criticamente ridotta (uremia), condizione che rappresenta lo stadio più grave dell'insufficienza renale.
Nell'emodialisi le prime due funzioni vengono svolte sottoponendo il sangue del paziente (da cui "emo") al principio fisico della dialisi. Esso viene fatto scorrere in un filtro in cui entra in contatto con una membrana semipermeabile attraverso cui passano solo (o almeno in maggior quantità) le sostanze tossiche che si desidera rimuovere. Il filtro consente, oltre alla rimozione di sostanze, anche il reintegro di radicali alcalini, quindi il riequilibrio acido-base.
L'ultima funzione in elenco riguarda la necessità di rimuovere i liquidi assunti attraverso l'alimentazione e non eliminati con la diuresi, che può essere estremamente ridotta o assente (anuria) nei soggetti nefropatici in fase terminale. Il metodo utilizzato è la ultrafiltrazione. (fonte: Wikipedia)
