State of the art Haemodialysis facilities are available at Noble Hospital; all patients are treated using the latest fully computerized bicarbonate based haemodialysis machines with volumetric ultra-filtration and adjustable sodium facility, that provide better patient safety. Infection control practices are strictly adhered to prevent transmission of infections. The latest dialysis machines include various sensors, meters gauges, monitors, blood leak detectors, computerized detection systems that provide for better quality of dialysis. Biocompatible membrane based dialyzers are routinely used with volumetric ultra-filtration.
All water for dialysis is purified using reverse osmosis (R.O.) and the water quality is monitored at regular intervals to ensure patient safety and prevent long term complications on haemodialysis.
Facility for continuous monitoring of the sick patient through highly sophisticated monitors throughout the dialysis procedure is available. Bedside Dialysis facility is available and routinely performed in ICU for critically ill patients.
We provide highly sophisticated dialysis support for critically ill patients in ICU with multi-organ failure where peritoneal or routine haemodialysis are not possible for various reasons.
SLED (Sustained Low Efficiency Dialysis)
Plasmapheresis and Plasma Exchange
These faculties of Plasmapheresis and Therapeutic Plasma Exchange (TPE) are available for renal and non renal patients such as GB syndrome and myasthenia gravis. Various diseases like Goodpasture's syndrome, Hemolytic Uremic syndrome, TTP, cryoglobulinemia, RPGN (SLE, ANCA-related) can be treated with Plasmapheresis. It's done using Plama filter and 5% Albumin or fresh Plasma.
Hemoperfusion in Poisoning
This procedure is performed using Charcoal cartridge, with an average treatment time of hours. It is a life saving technique for treating overdoses of sleeping pills, drugs and other poisons.
The aim of the Peritoneal dialysis is to support patients carrying out their peritoneal dialysis at home. This can be continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) or automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) by machine.
With CAPD (continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis) a thin tube called a catheter is surgically implanted into the abdominal wall. Inside your body the tube hangs down into the abdominal cavity. You will need to drain a cleaning solution called dialysate through the tube 3 or 4 times a day (having first drained off the used fluid which carries the toxic waste matters away from your body as your kidneys used to do).
CAPD takes place inside the body using the natural lining of the abdomen called the Peritoneum. The Peritoneum acts as the dialysis membrane. In order to do your dialysis by CAPD, you will need to have a small operation (which takes place under a local or general anesthesia) to insert a catheter into your abdomen, CAPD is done at home usually 4 times every day. It takes less than 30 minutes each time and is a very simple, painless procedure. Because dialysis is carried out at home patients must be able and willing to take major responsibility for their own care.
The patient will receive expert training from your CAPD nurse which will give you all the expertise and confidence you need to be independent. You will always have the support and advice of the Renal Unit when needed. You can lead a normal active, working life.
