What Is Plasmapheresis?
Plasmapheresis is a blood filtering treatment. It includes a wide range of procedures in which an extracorporeal separation of blood components results in a filtered plasma product.
Plasmapheresis is a process in which the doctors are separating the liquid in the blood, or plasma, from the cells. Then, it is filtering, and, also, putting back into the body free of harmful substances.
The filtering of the plasma from the blood can be accomplished via centrifugation or the usage of semipermeable membranes – Plasmapheresis device.
Plasmapheresis is widely useful at the initial stage of a complex therapy. It enhances the efficiency of a treatment and regenerates the patient’s organism. It is beneficial only after a consultation with a doctor.
The therapy in practice:
Plasmapheresis is currently usable as a therapeutic modality in a wide array of conditions. Generally, it is beneficial when a substance in the plasma, such as immunoglobulin, is acutely toxic. It can be efficiently removed.
In the drug detoxification treatment process, plasmapheresis does not only reduce the symptoms of withdrawal syndrome, but kick-starts the metabolism and immunity. The experience in treating patients with substance abuse shows a high efficiency of the complex course of the therapeutic plasmapheresis.
In all cases, up to the end of the course there was a gradual elimination of withdrawal syndrome symptoms where somatic-vegetative disorders were normalized. Normal sleep, appetite and psycho-emotional status were normalized.
Plasmapheresis is also useful in other areas of medicine as a very powerful tool against allergies and autoimmune reactions. This process easies the operation of the internal organs such as liver and kidney.
