Dialysis is a medical process 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.

Dialysis keeps your body in balance by:

  • Removing toxins, waste products, salt & excess water from the body
  • Maintaining the balance of certain chemicals like potassium, sodium, and bicarbonate
  • Keeping blood pressure in control
  • Haemodialysis

    It 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. This helps to remove the urea and undesired impurities from the blood based on the principle of osmosis and concentration gradient.

  • Peritoneal Dialysis

    This is a type of dialysis that uses the lining of the abdomen, or belly, to filter the blood inside the patient’s body. The blood gets cleaned with the help of a specialized fluid kept inside the abdominal cavity. Here the doctor does surgery to insert a plastic tube (called a catheter) to the belly allowing the urine to drain freely. The most common reason for using the catheter are to rest the bladder following an episode of urinary retention, and to rest the bladder after surgery. The lining of the abdomen is called peritoneum and hence the name peritoneal dialysis which acts as a filter and removes waste products from the blood. After a set period of time, the fluid with the filtered waste product is emptied out of the abdomen. Peritoneal dialysis can be done at home, work or even while travelling.
