Dialysis Services at CKC
Patients with severe renal failure are treated using dialysis treatment. Dialysis does the work the of the kidney and improves general health but it does not improve kidney function.

Three types of dialysis treatment are available for patients with severe renal failure. They are:

  1. Haemodialysis,
  2. Intermittent Peritoneal dialysis and
  3. Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD)

Haemodilaysis section has forty (40) state-of-the-art haemodialysis machines. They are all computer controlled. Water used for dialysis is treated using reverse osmosis. Haemodialysis is headed by an experienced Medical Officer working with two well experienced medical social workers and a dietitian. There are twenty well trained nurses and technicians in the haemodialysis section.

We do about 1250 haemodialysis per month. There is a general dialysis section and two isolation dialysis sections for patients suffering from hepatitis (one for Hepatitis B / another for hepatitis C).

General dialysis section is divided into two, one for patients coming up for kidney transplantation and other for patients staying on long term haemodialysis..

CAPD (Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis) is the preferred mode of dialysis for some patients. We have an excellent training programme for CAPD patient’s relatiaves. Two well trained nurses and a medical officer under the guidance of nephrologist, look after the day to day problems in CAPD patients.
