   Nephrology

 We all know that kidney disease is on the rise in our country and all over the world. We as doctors have to take care of varieties of the population like

  • People who are at risk of developing kidney diseases and the aim is to prevent kidney ailments
  • Patients who have developed kidney disease and the aim is to slow progression to end-stage kidney disease
  • Provide adequate care and support for patients who have reached end-stage kidney disease and require treatment for the same.

At AIMS Hospital we believe in informed patient care.

Our aim

Kidney Failure

  • Patients with a severe degree of kidney failure cannot lead a comfortable life with medications and dietary restrictions alone. They need a treatment modality known as dialysis, a procedure to purify the blood by removing toxic substances.
  • The term chronic renal failure denotes a permanent loss of kidney function. When a person has suffered an irreversible loss of more than 90% of kidney function, the patient is diagnosed as having end-stage renal disease. Patients with end-stage renal disease undergo lifelong maintenance dialysis or a kidney transplant.
  • Our department offers hemodialysis, in which the patient’s blood is filtered by an artificial kidney, Those with end-stage renal disease are given the option of either hemodialysis or Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD).

   CRRT

What is CRRT, and how does it help?

CRRT is a type of blood purification therapy used with patients who are experiencing Acute Kidney Injury (AKI). During this therapy, a patient’s blood passes through a special filter that removes fluid and uremic toxins, returning clean blood to the body. The slow and continuous nature of the process, typically performed over a 24-hour period, allows patients with unstable blood pressure and heart rate, which is termed hemodynamically unstable, to better tolerate this process.

 

 
Features of CRRT
 
  • Minimal negative impact on hemodynamic stability
  • Enable to remove solutes in blood and tissue
  • Enable to maintain homeostasis including fluid balance, acid-base balance, electrolytes balance and colloid osmotic pressure
  • Provides an administration route for medication and / or nutrition
