Dialysis is a life-saving medical intervention that works by aiding the kidneys in performing their function of purifying the blood of various impurities.
The procedure removes waste products, excess fluid, and toxins from the blood when the kidneys can no longer function normally due to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) or acute kidney injury (AKI)
Dialysis may be recommended for children with any of the following medical conditions:
Dialysis is not an option for everyone. The procedure is recommended after a thorough evaluation and assessment of the child to ensure the best outcomes.
Major indications for dialysis include:
Dialysis is broadly classified into two types based on the approach that is followed. These are:
At Surya Hospital, we believe in maintaining complete transparency, ensuring that the parents are well-informed about the procedure as this will make it easier for them to prepare their little ones.
A series of tests will be performed to assess the child and make sure there is no complication that may impact the procedure.
The child may be required to take certain medications or make necessary adjustments as per the doctors recommendation.< /p>
The steps involved primarily depend on the type of dialysis.
The child is taken to the Dialysis Unit where a specialized team of doctors, nurses and technicians are present to perform the procedure.
Once the procedure is complete the child is discharged. Kids with ESRD or serious kidney problems might be admitted to the hospital depending on their overall condition.
Dialysis helps to remove extra fluids and unwanted wastes from the body, just like healthy functioning kidneys do.
The type of dialysis that will suit your little one the best can be determined by performing certain tests and considering a variety of other factors like the age of the patient, underlying medical condition and sometimes family preference.
Yes, kids with dialysis do need extra care, especially when it comes to their diet and fluid intake. At Surya Hospital, we offer a personalized dietary plan to help parents make sure that their child is getting all the necessary nutrients without compromising their well-being and treatment results.
A child can be kept on dialysis as long as their kidneys do not start to function better or they don't find a suitable donor.
The frequency of the procedure varies from one child to another, depending on factors like the age of the child, severity of symptoms and overall prognosis.
