Dialysis is a treatment where the functions of the kidney are replicated by the dialysis process in situations where the kidneys have failed to function normally.
Dialysis is needed when you develop end stage kidney failure – usually when 85 to 90 percent of your kidney function is lost.
Dialysis is required to keep the body in balance by:
• waste, salt and extra water removal to prevent them from building up in the body
• ensuring maintenance of a safe level of chemicals in your blood, like potassium, sodium and bicarbonate
• blood pressure control
• SLED (Sustained low efficiency dialysis)
• 24 Hr Emergency Haemodialysis
In hemodialysis, waste and extra chemicals and fluid from your blood are removed by a hemodialyser machine. To get your blood into the machine, an access is made into your blood vessels. This is done by minor surgery to your arm or leg. Sometimes, joining an artery to a vein under your skin to make a bigger blood vessel called a fistula is also done.
SLED is increasingly used as a renal replacement modality in critically ill patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) and hemodynamic instability. In MNBC Fresenius 5008 S machine is used for SLED may reduce the hemodynamic perturbations of intermittent haemodialysis, while obviating the resource demands of CRRT (continuous renal replacement therapy)
It was an excellent experience after staying three nights at Medica. I will be visiting this hospital if needed and also refer othersMr.S. Majumdar Businessman
