The Cause Of Blood Clots During Hemodialysis?
Good afternoon, Doctor. My mother is HD and has only used Cimino 3 times. However, there had been 2 blood clots so that the HD machine stopped running and HD was stopped immediately, so my mother’s blood was wasted because the blood could not reenter. My mother has really taken care of her food and drink. What causes the clot? And how to solve it. thanks.
From the information you have conveyed, the HD action with the Cimino technique can meet difficult factors such as that experienced by your mother. Blood clots or blood clotting in the cimino area can occur in 17-25% of cases during HD procedures. Therefore, this condition is a common complication in patients with HD. And if this condition persists, it can cause comorbid complications in the form of swelling and disturbed HD process.
Handling is done by administering anti-clotting to help the HD process run smoothly, such as giving acetylsalicylic acid. However, more aggressive measures can also be done to treat thrombosis or blood clots, depending on the cause of the blood clot.
Therefore, it is better if this condition is discussed directly with the internal medicine doctor who treats your parents, so that you and your family can find out the treatment plans and follow-up plans for HD that your parents are undergoing.
That is the information we can convey, read also the handling of complications of cimino.
