Dialysis is a life-support therapy essential for treating the complications of kidney failure. It provides the rest to the organs (kidney), gives them time to recover. There are two primary forms of dialysis: haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.
Available Dialysis Services
- Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD)It removes waste, chemicals, and extra fluid from the patient's body.
- Continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD)It is also known as automated peritoneal dialysis (APD). The method uses a machine (automated cycler) that offers multiple exchanges at night during patient sleep.
- Intermittent peritoneal dialysis (IPD):
The technique uses the peritoneum as a natural porous membrane through which water and solutes can pass in and out.
