Importance of Hemodialysis
Dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood and is used primarily as an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with kidney failure.
Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturbance in kidney function (acute kidney injury) or progressive but chronically worsening kidney function—a state known as chronic kidney disease stage 5 (previously chronic kidney failure or end-stage renal disease). The latter form may develop over months or years, but in contrast to acute kidney injury is not usually reversible and dialysis is regarded as a “holding measure” until a kidney transplant can be performed or sometimes as the only supportive measure in those for whom a transplant would be inappropriate.
Treatment is administered by trained kidney care professionals (Certified Nephrology Nurse – CNN). Once the patient arrive at the dialysis center, the healthcare team—from the nurse to the facility administrator—will take care of all aspects of treatment.
Single use of dialyzer is being offered in the inpatient and outpatient and they also have the option for the use of bed or dialysis chair during their treatment.
There are 20 dialysis machine with 16 available at the HD Center and 4 dedicated at the critical care units.
