Treatment options for individuals with ESRD include kidney transplants or maintenance dialysis. Kidney transplants are not a practical option on a wide scale, as suitable donated organs are scarce. Consequently, dialysis is the treatment used by most individuals with ESRD. Hemodialysis, the most common form of dialysis, is generally administered three times a week at facilities that provide these services. During hemodialysis, a machine pumps blood through an artificial kidney and returns the cleansed blood to the body.
