The Dialysis Centre at Yashoda Hospital provides comprehensive medical care for a range of dialysis facilities for hospitalized patients and outpatients suffering from chronic or acute chronic renal failure. We have a dedicated team in our dialysis unit who work together to provide extensive care to people with kidney disorders.
With unique state-of-the-art facilities as per AAMI standard, we are a leading provider of dialysis care. For seriously ill patients, we have separate isolation areas for HCV and HBsAg.
We provide home dialysis training and support for both home hemodialysis and chronic peritoneal dialysis. We also provide nutrition counselling, for people who need on-going guidance from dieticians with expertise in kidney disorders. Our dialysis unit also offers temporary dialysis if you need treatment while travelling.
Our dialysis centre upholds the most stringent standards in hygiene, safety and patient care. We have an effective staff-to-patient ratio that includes certified chronic hemodialysis technicians, registered nurses, a renal dietitian and a renal social worker, all under the direction of a multidisciplinary team of Nephrologist and trained Dialysis staff.
To ensure that each of our patients has access to the best possible, consistent and safe dialysis treatment round-the-clock, we hold monthly care conferences with you to ensure your needs are being met.
We provide the following clinical services:
Dialysis, like kidney, is a treatment used to filter the waste and water from a human’s body. It is an artificial way of cleaning the blood by removing the toxins. When a person suffers from chronic or acute chronic renal failure than “Dialysis,” is used to perform the functions of the kidney.
Hemodialysis is one type of dialysis treatment for kidney failure, which uses a dialysis machine to clean your blood.
Step 1: A dialysis nurse or technician places two needles in the patient’s arm from where the passes through a filter into a soft tube connected between the needle and the dialysis machine.
Step 2: The dialysis machine then pumps the blood through the filter and returns the filtered blood back into the body. During the process, the machine keeps a regular check on the patient’s blood pressure and controls
Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) is performed to remove chemicals, wastes, and extra fluid from your body.
Step 1: During CAPD, a dialysis nurse or technician injects a liquid called dialysate into your abdomen through a catheter (thin tube). The dialysate extracts chemicals, wastes, and extra fluid from your blood through the peritoneum (thin lining on the inside of your abdomen).
Step 2: The peritoneum acts as a filter as the wastes are pulled through it. The exchange process involves the filling and emptying of your abdomen with dialysate. These exchanges are done 3 to 5 times during the day and maybe once during the night.
A person needs dialysis when both of his kidneys are unable to remove enough wastes and fluid from the blood, which means only 10 to 15 percent of the kidney is functioning. A patient might experience symptoms like:
However, it may not be necessary that a patient will experience these symptoms; he/she can still have a high level of wastes in their blood that may be toxic. A doctor can evaluate a patient based on current health conditions and if required, will advise the use of dialysis.
