We give you the best dialysis service(7 Med Dialysis) managed by an experienced team of nephrologists, certified haemodialysis technicians and nurses accompanied by the registered dieticians. Nocturnal, peritoneal and small daily dialysis and haemodialysis are provided to both adults as well as children.
In hemodialysis, an artificial assemblage called a dialyser simulates the action of the nephron. For undergoing hemodialysis, a person needs to first undergo a minor surgical procedure for creating a vascular passage for connecting the blood circulation to the dialysis machine with the help of needles/tubing.
If the absence of AV fistula dialysis is done via jugular / subclavian /femoral vein catheterization. The principal procedure for a dialysis catheter is required. Otherwise, minor surgery is known as dialysis AV (arterio-venous) fistula surgery or simply a fistula surgery. Once this is accomplished, a person does not need to worry about the trouble being “grounded” with a catheter for every session of dialysis. Maximum people undergo 1-4 dialysis sessions per week, which lasts four hours each time.
This is a completely different way of refining wastes from the body. In people suffering from kidney failure, the blood flows via the peritoneum (including excessive waste products because of kidney dysfunction) that comes in contact with clear fluid in the peritoneal cavity. The waste moves from the blood into the cleaner fluid which is exuded out thus completely cleaning or purifying the blood.
