Dialysis Unit

Dialysis Unit Care

Kidney failures are nowadays very common for Indian population. The statistics according to a study estimates about more than seventeen per cent of Indians to be under the chronic condition of kidney failures or other kidney related complications. This takes us to another medical prediction of about two laks patients to be needing the facility of a dialysis unit every year. Sadly, only twenty per cent of the above data get a proper dialysis subjected to their economic conditions. Anther unfortunate truth in the face of kidney medicare is the existence of only four dialysis centres per ten millions of the population out there. Keeping the above data in mind, it seems pretty difficult to ensure a regular dialysis treatment for every one out there in need. 

Dialysis is primarily a medical process which is performed routinely in case of kidney failures to remove excess water, solutes and toxins from the blood which the failed kidneys cannot filter out through natural process. It is based on the scientific principle of osmosis of solutes from a higher concentration to a lower concentration across a semi permeable membrane. It is essentially of two types – haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. The former process purifies the blood by exporting the blood outside a body through the equipment body consisting of a semi permeable membrane through an external filter called dialyzer. The blood from the body flows out in one direction and the dialysate, which is another blood like chemical component flows in the opposite. The counter-current produced by such a process induces the flow of the blood and dialysate maximizes the concentration gradient of solutes between the human blood and dialysate. This helps to remove the urea and undesired impurities from the blood based on the principle of osmosis and concentration gradient. The peritoneal dialysis helps the removal of wastes and water from the blood inside the body using the peritoneum as a natural semipermeable membrane.

The dialysis unit of Atlantis Hospital helps the eligible patient to easily access the well developed dialysis unit under expert nephrologists and medical experts. The dialysis facility is closely monitored and periodically sanitised before every usage. If you’re someone awaiting a kidney transplant or are suffering from a chronic condition of kidneys, we urge you to consult our nephrologists right away. Atlantis Hospital believes in serving the mankind with every small step that it can take.
