Dialysis is essentially used for patients with stopped kidney function as a method of renal replacement therapy and as an artificial replacement for lost kidney function due to renal failure. Dialysis may be used for sick patients with acute renal failure or for patients with stage 5 chronic kidney disease. For patients with stage 5, the decline in kidney function occurs over a period of time until a level is reached at which treatment is essential. Kidney transplant is the best option but not all patients can manage a transplant due to many reasons like short supply of donor kidneys. So many rely on dialysis to replace water and waste although dialysis cannot emulate the exact function of healthy kidneys.
