Kidney Failure Explanation Video

This 4.5 minute video about kidney failure is a slide presentation with narration produced by the Patient Education Institute.  After a brief description of how the kidneys function, it explains end-stage renal disease (ESRD), which is also known as kidney failure. It describes the dangers of end stage kidney (renal) failure along with symptoms and treatment possibilities. When someone has ESRD, the only options for survival are kidney transplantation or dialysis for the rest of their life. Prevention of kidney failure is also covered in this video.
