Dialysis & Nephrology Care
Above 30% of critically ill patient develop renal failure of various severity. Therefore, referring it to an experienced nephrologist becomes essential, so as to correctly diagnose and treat the disorders. Nephrology also involves comprehensive care for kidney diseases associated with other illnesses and conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes. We offer both inpatient and OPD care to all nephrology patients round the clock.
The Nephrology Department of Surana hospital is well-equipped and well-versed to treat the critically ill patients.
With availability of 24hrs service, we offer :
Daily OPD for outdoor and day-care facilities.
Dialysis is the process of removing wastes and impurities from the blood and is done when a person's kidney doesn't function properly, due to kidney failure, severe diabetes, a congenital kidney disease, hypertension or other health problems.
Dialysis is a form of renal replacement therapy.
Dialysis can be done for a short period, in case the patient is waiting for a kidney transplant. If the patient doesn't qualify for the transplant, life-long dialysis will be needed.
There are two types of dialysis:
In hemodialysis, a machine called a dialyser is used to filter the blood. A catheter is placed in a vein in the arm, and a needle inserted into this catheter is connected to a tube that carries blood into the dialyser. In the dialyser, a semi-permeable membrane separates the blood from a dialysis fluid. The wastes in the blood pass through the membrane into the fluid, and the clean blood is sent into the body.
Well-equipped Hemodyalysis unit : Managed by skilled, experienced and well trained technicians and nursing staff, strongly backed by highly qualified team of Nephrologists, having most advanced NIPRO (Japanese) machines.High specialised water treatment plant gives best quality water for effective dialysis.
In peritoneal dialysis, the abdomen is filled with a glucose-based liquid through a small hole created in the peritoneal membrane (lining of the abdominal cavity). This solution cleans the blood of wastes.
Peritoneal dialysis can be done when the patient is performing regular activities. Such dialysis is called Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis. The patient will be trained to infuse and drain out the fluid a few times every day. Peritoneal dialysis can also be done with the help of a machine, at night, when the patient is sleeping.
Plasma exchange may be done along with dialysis, to filter clotting factors and unwanted proteins. Charcoal hemofiltration in which a charcoal layer is used to remove wastes from blood, a process similar to dialysis, may sometimes be used.
Renal Biopsy and its histopathological evaluation.
Emergency treatment for cases of poisoning, fluid and electrolyte imbalance.
Procedures like Exchange Transfusion and Plasmaphersis are also performed.
