Hemodialysis Unit.

 

 

The aim of the Hemodialysis unit is to deliver the optimal medical support for the patient with acute or chronic renal failure.

 

The hemodialysis is a process of purifying the blood of a person whose kidneys are not working normally by achieving extracorporeal removal of waste products from the blood, and compensating for renal function loss by using a machine, and it is commonly known as dialysis.

Our Specialized services include the placement of vascular access for the conduct of therapeutic hemodialysis, hemoperfusion, plasmapheresis, or hemofiltration.

Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), or acute renal failure are subject to dialysis treatment where the patient is admitted to the hospital or through frequent periodical visits to dialysis facilities.

Our hospital has the ability to manage critically ill patients with renal failure and hemodynamic instability as we have advanced prismaflex machine for CRRT.

Our hemodialysis unit is under the supervision of a group of nephrology Consultants, supported by a highly trained nursing staff, in addition to social workers and a nutritionists.

The unit consists of 25 beds and is equipped with state-of-the-art Gambro machines and equipment, as well as three isolation rooms dedicated to hepatitis C & B patients.

 

Patients generally require three to four treatments per week for four hours each session.
