Home Peritoneal Dialysis and Home Haemodialysis
Home Peritoneal Dialysis
Our care is not only limited to hospital premises; we ensure our patients well-being at their homes as well. While patients normally go to a dialysis centre, BLK Super Specialty Hospital offers the flexibility of allowing patients to dialyse at home. In this treatment, a cleansing fluid called dialysate is injected into the patient's abdomen using a small tube called a PD catheter.
We also offer training to patients and their family members 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.
Studies suggest that the more you are aware about using a dialysis on your own, the better are the chances of you making progress. 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. 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.
