Home Peritoneal Dialysis and Home Haemodialysis
Home Peritoneal Dialysis
BLK Super Specialty Hospital offers the flexibility of allowing patients to dialyse at home rather than coming in for dialysis. In this treatment, a cleansing fluid called dialysate is injected into the patient's abdomen using a small tube called a PD catheter. Patients and their family members are personally trained by the BLK technical staff to initiate the process at home. With Home Peritoneal Dialysis, one saves a lot time, money and energy spent on travelling to hospital multiple times in a week. This also involves fewer requirements for blood transfusion.
The team at BLK Centre for Renal Sciences & Kidney Transplant takes care of all arrangements related to the home haemodialysis machine, RO supply, as well as providing a technician for treatment at home. Patients and their family members are explained the process of performing haemodialysis comfortably at home. Haemodialysis at the hospital often takes around three to four hours, as many as three to seven times a week.However, if done at home the patient may be able to adjust the treatment into his/her daily schedule more easily. Studies suggest that the more you are aware about using a dialysis on your own, the better are the chances of you making progress.
