Hello Tri Anggoro Broto, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Dialysis or hemodialysis is a medical process performed on patients with impaired renal function, excess fluid (overload), electrolyte disturbances, or metabolic disorders in the blood. Dialysis equipment will replace kidney function, search for substances or poisons in the body and remove excess fluid from the body.
Need more complete information about the indications or reasons for dialysis. However, some of the causes of your mother are unconscious among others:
Uremic encephalopathy (abnormalities or impairment of brain function due to excess urea in the body) Acidosis (excess acid in the blood) Hyperkalemia Breathing due to excess fluid in the lungs Like other medical procedures dialysis procedures can also have risks such as infection, nausea, vomiting, headaches, fever, hypotension, to heart problems during the hemodialysis process. Side effects of dialysis can vary but at the consideration of your doctor these actions are very important to replace the function of your mother's kidneys.
Impaired kidney function can cause urea substances to accumulate in the body and can cause disturbances in the brain and cause disturbance of consciousness until it occurs. It is best to consult with a doctor who is responsible for your mother regarding the status of awareness or illness suffered by your mother.
Hopefully this information can be useful for you.
