Dialysis Procedure

Dialysis is a procedure that purifies and filters the blood with an instrument. This assists in keeping your electrolytes and fluids in balance when your kidneys don't perform their duties.

When should you start Dialysis?

It is suggested that dialysis commence prior to the time that kidney disease has advanced to the point that dangerous complications to the heart and brain develop. If someone starts dialysis late, then their quality of life has not substantially improved when receiving regular dialysis.

Different kinds of Dailysis

  • Hemodialysis : Hemodialysis is a form of dialysis where dialysis is performed intermittently. The blood in the body is continuously removed during the hemodialysis process and passed through an artificial kidney which cleans it. The treatment is an intermittent treatment and is performed ranging from three hours thrice weekly to eight or nine hours six to seven times a week
  • Peritoneal Dialysis: Peritoneal Dialysis is a therapy that typically is managed by patients at home. The therapy works by cleaning the blood of toxins and removing extra fluids through one of the body’s own membranes, the peritoneal membrane. While many dialysis patients in the India go to a dialysis center, PD offers more flexibility by allowing patients to dialyze at home, at work or on vacation.

The emergency dialysis is typically offered in the event of an emergency.

  • Loss of hepatitis,continous weight loss and repeated vomiting
