The renal unit serves patients with chronic kidney disease who require haemodialysis for the rest of their lives or until they would require a renal transplant. Many of the patients come from home, 2-3 times a week for haemodialysis sessions which lasts 4-5 hours.
M P Shah renal unit is equipped with the state of the art haemodialysis machines and water treatment from Fresinius Medical Care the world global leader in renal care. The equipment ensures quality care in line with global standards. In a quiet and spacious environment ensuring the patients comfort and safety.
Our renal department also caters for patients with acute kidney injury, a reversible type of renal failure which is normally coupled with multiple organ failure. These very sick patients are managed in our 7-bed I.C.U on the ground floor left wing. These patients receive continuous renal replacement therapy on the Fresenius multi filtrate machine. This mode entails continuous dialysis treatment until the patients condition has improved or the renal function has been recovered.
