Dialysis

Dialysis

Dialysis is a procedure to clean the blood and filter it free from toxins and other waste materials. Dialysis is also known as kidney dialysis. The 2 types of dialysis are hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis of which hemodialysis is most commonly used.

Haemodialysis: A machine (artificial kidney) is used to filter the blood. The process is performed in our setting several times a week. Each session of hemodialysis lasts for more than 4 hours and is usually given 3 times a week.

Peritoneal dialysis: This lesser performed procedure makes use of the peritoneal membrane, that is the lining of the abdomen, to filter blood.
