At Yashoda Hospital, we provide exceptional care to our patients suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD). We provide our patients home peritoneal dialysis and home haemodialysis that allow them complete convenience to perform these procedures right from their home.
We have an eminent team of kidney transplant specialists, nephrologists, urologists and the technical expertise which help you to live fuller, more active and vibrant lives which go beyond providing the best dialysis care.
When the kidneys are not functioning properly, renal replacement therapy such as dialysis (hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis) and renal transplant is used to replace the workings of the kidney.
At Yashoda Hospital, our technical staff personally trains patients and their relatives about the uses of dialysis. This approach helps them save time, money and energy spent on travelling to the hospital three times a week. The training process involves everything related to the use of a dialysis machine.
The Yashoda Centre for Renal Sciences & Kidney Transplant arranges all arrangements pertaining to a home peritoneal dialysis and home haemodialysis machine, RO supply and technical staff.
Patients and their relatives are taught to perform haemodialysis at home, usually at night before sleeping, 3 to 7 nights a week, as per the patient's condition. We also provide a technician for dialysis at home. However, the process demands fewer requirements for blood transfusion and fewer restrictions on food and fluid intake from the patient’s end. Generally, there are two types of home dialysis, such as:
Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is considered as one of the most home dialysis treatment options available so far. PD is a treatment of choice because it fits nicely into the daily lifestyle of the patient and provides a more controlled treatment option. PD can be performed in two ways
The Centre of Renal Sciences and kidney transplant at Yashoda trains thousands of people every year with end-stage renal disease to treat their dialysis at home with PD.
How Home Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) Works?
The working procedure of Home Peritoneal dialysis (PD) involves the use of the lining of your abdomen (belly) instead of needles, where the waste buildup from the blood through a solution known as dialysate is gently removed.
A soft, flexible catheter is surgically placed in the patient’s abdomen using Fluoroscopic Guided Permanent Catheter Placement method. It is one of the most significant ways of placing the catheter as it aids stable initiation and maintenance of PD. A flexible catheter is used to pass dialysate in and out. Though the catheter remains permanently fix inside the abdomen and is taped outside the body, it does not interfere with everyday activities.
Generally, PD is of two types:

The Time Required To Do Home Peritoneal Dialysis
PD is a continuous process throughout the day; therefore, a patient has to give its treatment (draining or filling) time.
What Is Home Haemodialysis?
This process is performed to treat people suffering from kidney failure, which is also termed as an end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Kidney failure is a stage 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD) that arises due to the inability of a kidney to perform its function of purifying the blood. Home Haemodialysis is an artificial way of purifying blood using a machine and helps to improve the rate of survival and quality of life.
How Does Home Haemodialysis Work?
In this process of home Haemodialysis, the patient’s blood is filtered outside of its body through an artificial kidney often known as a dialyser. It helps in removing the unwanted waste, toxins and excess fluids from the blood using a solution called dialysate. The clean and chemically balanced blood is then returned to the patient’s body. Generally, there are two types of home Haemodialysis:

The Time Required To Do Home Haemodialysis
Performing home Haemodialysis on each treatment day requires a few hours. Since the machine is at home, a patient can perform the treatment whenever required early in the morning, late at night, or any time that works. However, it is not necessary that the patient has to do it on the same day every time.
