DEPARTMENTS / Plasmapheresis



What is plasmapheresis? Plasmapheresis is a rapidly developing method of treatment in recent years. This term is used to describe the process of separating blood plasma from whole blood. The purpose of plasmapheresis is to remove damaged blood from the body and return healthy blood to the body.


Plasmapheresis, that is, the process of removing plasma from the blood and returning it to the patient or donor, was first performed in 1902 in France and in 1914 in Russia.


Since ancient times, doctors have used bleeding to treat many diseases. In modern clinical practice, plasmapheresis is used for this purpose.


Therapeutic effects of plasmapheresis: As a result of various diseases, the plasma, that is part of our blood is damaged, due to which the disease continues for a certain period of time. Plasmapheresis is a treatment used in such cases where the damaged plasma is replaced or removed with plasma in good condition.


Plasmapheresis improves the functional state of the detoxification system by separating pathological substances from the blood that prevent and aggravate the disease in the process of blood circulation, reduces the toxic effect on the liver, kidneys and other organs. As a result, the body's resistance to external influences increases, and the duration of treatment is reduced.


After plasmapheresis, a general stimulating reaction of the body occurs: blood circulation in all organs improves, the rate of capillary circulation increases, swelling of tissues decreases, nutrition and respiration of cells improves, local inflammatory reactions weaken, blood becomes pure. Plasmapheresis cleanses not only the blood, but also cells and tissues from pathological substances.


Types of plasmapheresis: Plasmapheresis is mainly carried out by two methods: membrane and centrifugal plasmapheresis. The essence of both methods is the same: plasma is separated from the blood, which is the limpid part of the blood.


With membrane plasmapheresis, one or two veins are punctured. The blood passes through the filter, the blood plasma is separated from the formed elements and collected in a special container. In one session, 500-

1000 ml of plasma is separated from the blood. The session lasts two to three hours.


During centrifugal plasmapheresis, a vein is punctured. 450-500 ml of blood is collected in a special disposable container. The blood in the container is subjected to gravity in the device and separated from the plasma elements. In one session, 240-280 ml of plasma is separated. During one procedure it is possible to carry out several sessions of plasmapheresis. One session of the procedure lasts 45-60 minutes.


The therapeutic effect is more effective when combined with plasmapheresis and ozone therapy.
