With the increasing incidence of kidney disease, the society pays more and more attention to its treatment. As a common method of kidney disease treatment, hemodialysis has been widely used in the clinical treatment of nephrology. In the stage of dialysis, it is very easy to have all kinds of complications, which will threaten the life of patients. The purpose of this paper is to improve the therapeutic effect by analyzing the common complications of hemodialysis in the department of nephrology. In this paper, the principle and concept of hemodialysis and common diseases in nephrology department were discussed at first. Then, by means of case retrospective analysis, the specific types of common complications in hemodialysis in nephrology department were analyzed, and the specific treatment plans for each complication were proposed. The experimental results showed that: compared with before the treatment of complications, after the treatment of complications, the patient's life risk decreased by about 28%, the treatment effect increased by about 20%, and the recovery rate increased by about 6%. In summary, the timely treatment of complications is related to the therapeutic effect of hemodialysis.
