What is Dialysis ?
Dialysis is a life – saving process that artificially replaces the functions of the Kidneys. Hemodialysis involves removing blood from the body and filtering it in a machine. The patient is connected by a tube to the dialysis machine, which continuously draws blood out , cleanses it and removes excess fluid and then returns the blood back to the patient. Hemodialysis must be performed for 3 to 4 hrs at least three times a week. It is usually performed at a dialysis center, though home dialysis is also possible.
Umkal has two dialysis machines – the latest Kawasaki from japan. Experienced senior Nephrologists monitor the patient’s kidney functions and their progress.
