Dialysis is a method of cleaning the blood, removing excess fluid from the body and performing other functions of the kidneys when the kidneys are not functioning properly. There are two main types of dialysis—hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Acute hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis are used to treat children with acute kidney failure. Chronic (long-term) hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis are used to treat children with chronic kidney failure. Acute hemodialysis is also used to treat children who have ingested certain toxins (poisons) that must be removed from the body quickly.

Once kidney function goes below 10 to 15 percent of normal, dialysis treatments or a kidney transplant are necessary to sustain life. There are two types of dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Both dialysis treatments are able to replace the kidneys’ function of cleaning the blood of toxins and removing extra fluids for people with kidney failure.
