Clean & Squeeze: Dialysis is both about cleaning (dialysis) the blood of toxins and squeezing (ultra-filtering) excess fluid out. Both functions are done constantly in patients with normal function. If too much fluid is removed. Patients can feel dizzy at the end of treatment. During the treatment, the blood pressure will drop, alerting the staff to decrease fluid removal.
