A vascular access makes dialysis possible by giving access to your bloodstream to remove, filter and return blood, making it vitally important to the health and quality of life of dialysis patients.
Vascular access is the direct method of accessing your bloodstream to remove, filter and return blood when the kidneys can no longer function sufficiently. Vascular access, therefore, is vitally important to health and quality of life for patients on dialysis.
