Artificial Kidney Dialysis Center


ARTIFICIAL KIDNEY DIALYSIS CENTRE:


The AKD department has 10 advanced computerised volumetric haemodialysis machines. The AKD also has seven remote fitted dialysis chairs. Two hemodialysis machines are kept at the ICU for dialysing critically ill patients.

Reverse osmosis water treatment system provides ultra pure water to all the machines. The system is fitted with stainless steel pipes, and loops for recirculating water. This mechanism avoids the water stagnation.

Infected patients are dialysed on separate machines.

We have patient friendly dialysis unit. Some of our dialysis units operate at night. This facility would suit employed patients.
