– Provide both chronic and acute kidney disease care.

– Offer regular dialysis treatment using a dialysis machine.

– Provides services to extract water from the patient's body with excess water Hemodialysis for severely ill patients Surgery to connect veins and arteries or insert a temporary tube for dialysis. kidney transplant by a skilled surgeon.

– The centre is equipped with a standard disinfection and infection control lab. The dialysis room is closely serviced by professional nurses who are trained under the supervision of a specialist in kidney disease.

– The hospital provides facilities in a comfortable, clean and safe environment for patients with renal failure and artificial dialysis.

Kidney failure.

– The state of kidney function is reduced by various causes, making the body unable to expel the body's waste in the urine normally. As a result, it causes residual waste in the body.

Kidney failure can be divided into two types:

– Renal Failure : Occurs acutely if the cause that caused the renal failure has been corrected by the kidneys. Usually returns to normal work in 2-4 weeks, so if the patient needs treatment with hemodialysis by artificial kidney It is often a temporary treatment. until the kidneys recover

– Chronic renal failure: requiring hemodialysis 2-3 times a week forever in order to make general symptoms work For chronic renal failure patients receiving inferior hemodialysis treatment


- Filtering waste from the blood by using a hemodialysis machine or may be called “Blood dialysis machine,” which is a tool that replaces the kidneys. by using a filter to help purify the blood and helps in the exchange of waste, mineral salts between the blood

– By taking 4 – 5 hours per time, 2 – 3 times a week, although there are tools to help replace the kidneys, but they cannot perform all the functions of the kidneys. Because normal kidneys work all the time, not stopping, but hemodialysis patients only 8-10 hours per week.

– In addition, the kidneys also have other functions such as generating hormones which cannot be replaced by hemodialysis, so patients need to be treated with concomitant medication. Patients should understand how to act properly for a good quality of life. and prevent complications

Benefits from the hemodialysis machine.

– Symptoms caused by salt and water retention include swelling, breathlessness, fatigue, inability to lie down, heart failure, etc. Within 1-2 days, preexisting high blood pressure decreases and can be controlled. easier

- Symptoms related to the nervous system include drowsiness, confusion, unconsciousness, spasms or convulsions, etc.

– When you see a doctor or nurse, you must tell the doctor all the abnormalities after you return from dialysis before you perform the dialysis, such as fever, chest tightness, panting, unable to lie flat, falling down, and wounding.

– In addition, it is necessary to tell the nurse before the artificial kidney cycle, whether or not to have teeth bleeding, menstruation, and bleeding, as the nurse reduces the size of the anticoagulant as appropriate to prevent further bleeding.

How is hemodialysis done?

– Start by inserting a needle into a special blood vessel that requires preoperative surgery. Most people prefer to use blood vessels in the arm after the needle has been successfully inserted and then connected to the blood supply line to bring the blood to the filter.

– When blood passes through the filter, the patient's blood exchanges substances with a special liquid called a dialysis fluid.

– After the blood has been cleaned and the minerals have been balanced, the machine will return good blood to the patient with reduced concentration of waste.

– In general, the hemodialysis process takes 4 hours per time, 2-3 times a week, because hemodialysis machines must be used for every hemodialysis so must be done at the hospital. or dialysis center, with nurses and expert staff closely supervising

– After the dialysis, the nurse uses a sterilized gauze to press the bleeding area until the needle stops.

– Some patients may press themselves. They should not press too hard when the wound is closed after the bleeding stops.

– Patients should be able to touch and hold for 30 minutes to stop the bleeding completely, without touching the water, and remove the plastic before 24 hours.

– Because infections can occur, patients should have the phone number of the artificial kidney.
