Dialysis in Punjab is what you look for when kidneys fail to perform the function of removing waste from the body.
Dialysis helps the body to restore normal function by extracting excess fluid and waste products from the body. Waste accumulation in the body due to the non-functioning of kidneys can cause damage to other body organs. Experts recommend dialysis to a person whose kidneys have reached end-stage renal disruption. With kidneys functioning only 10 to 15 percent, there is a need for dialysis.
Dialysis using machines filters and purifies the blood. It helps to keep the fluids and electrolytes in balance. However, along with dialysis, there may arise the need to continue other treatments parallel to it as a cure for kidney disease or other problems affecting the kidneys.
Haemodialysis uses an artificial kidney known as a hem dialyzer. It involves passing the blood through the artificial kidney to remove waste and extra fluid, followed by returning filtered blood into the body through a machine. A small incision in the body facilitates the outflow of blood into the artificial kidney for waste removal.
Peritoneal dialysis needs surgery for implanting a peritoneal dialysis catheter into the abdomen. Catheters facilitate filtering the blood through a membrane, the peritoneum. A special fluid called dialysate flows into the peritoneum and absorbs waste. Experts complete the procedure by draining dialysate from the body.
Continuous renal replacement therapy is a requirement for people suffering from acute kidney failure. It is done 12 to 24 hours a day.
Dialysis is an expensive and time-consuming process. The other alternative for it is a Kidney transplant. But it also has its limitations and demands that need the person to talk out and consult with the experts before setting up the mind for undergoing it. Supportive treatment is another way of extending the life of kidneys.
